VIDEO: Saudi Fighter Jets Kill Seven Yemenis in Ibb Province

Sun Sep 25, 2016 08:28:37

Saudi Arabia’s latest airstrikes on its impoverished neighbor Yemen have claimed the lives of seven civilians and injured several more.

The civilians were killed on Sunday as Saudi warplanes targeted residential areas in Yemen’s southern province of Ibb.   

According to local sources, the toll for attacks may increase as some of the injured are in critical condition.

Earlier, Saudi jets attacked the Kamaran district and an Air Force Base in Yemen’s western and coastal province of Hudaydah and the Political Security Office in the northwestern province of Sa’ada.

Saudi Arabia has been incessantly pounding Yemen since March 2015, with the UN putting the death toll from the military aggression at about 10,000. The offensive was launched to reinstate Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a Saudi ally who has resigned as Yemen’s president.

UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen Jamie McGoldrick said last month that the death toll from the Saudi military aggression could rise even further as some areas had no medical facilities, and that people were often buried without any official record being made, Press TV reported.
