The Saudi regime once again violated the ceasefire in Yemen, carrying out airstrikes on the impoverished Arab country.

Saudi Arabia launched rocket attacks against several areas in the Yemeni province of Sa’ada on Friday.

According to Yemen's al-Masirah news website, the rockets hit residential areas in Shada district.

On Thursday, six people were killed in airstrikes by Saudi warplanes on Sa'ada and the province of Amran.

The Yemeni army and popular committees launched retaliatory attacks on Saudi military positions in the southwestern province of Jizan.

Al-Masirah reported that the Yemeni forces fired rockets and artillery shells at the Saudi military camp of Mosem and other posts in the east of the town of Samtah on Friday.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since last March to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 11,800 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has drove the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster.
