Saudi Arabian warplanes have bombed residential buildings in the southwestern Yemeni province of Ta’izz, killing at least 10 people.

The Saturday attacks targeted the province’s As Silw district, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network reported.

Early reports had said that at least three women were among those killed.

Saudi aircraft also targeted the Nihm district in the Sana’a Province in west-central Yemen and another location in the Shabwah Province in the impoverished country’s south.

Separately, a blast was reported at a checkpoint in the Crater district in the southwestern province of Aden, leaving at least three people dead.

The details of the attack are yet to be announced.

Saudi Arabia has been waging war on Yemen since March 2015.

The war was launched in an unsuccessful attempt to reinstate Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has resigned as Yemen’s president.

The war has killed at least 10,000 people, amid countless reports suggesting the deliberate and indiscriminate targeting of civilian infrastructure by Saudi forces and mercenaries.

A Saudi-imposed naval embargo of Yemen, which is the Arab world’s poorest nation, has, meanwhile, led to a famine across much of the country.
