At least two Yemeni civilians have been killed in Saudi airstrikes on residential areas in the southern Yemeni province of al-Bayda.

According to Yemeni media outlets, at least six others including several women sustained injuries in the deadly airstrikes in the district of al-Zahir in the province on Sunday.

Reports added that the airstrikes targeted the house of a senior official belonging to the Yemen's Ansarullah fighters. There has been no more information on the fate of this unnamed official.

Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 - without a UN mandate - in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Earlier this week, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and medical charity group Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), known in English as Doctors Without Borders, expressed “extreme” concern about the Saudi airstrikes on Yemen’s lifelines and its obstruction of aid deliveries to the impoverished nation.
