In Saudi indiscriminate air raid 12 women and children killed in northwestern Yemen, as the Riyadh regime keeps up its military aggression against impoverished country.

The aircraft took Yemen’s Saada province under offensive on Wednesday, killing four women and two children and injuring six others.

Yemen’s Saba Net news agency said Saudi strikes against the province’s Bagim district killed a woman and two children and wounded two others on Tuesday.

Elsewhere in Saada, Saudi bombardment killed three women and injured four others.

"Also on Tuesday, Yemeni media reported that Saudi airstrikes had killed nearly 1,200 civilians and wounded about 2,500 others, mostly women and children, in the province over the past few months."

Riyadh began bombarding Yemen on March 26, without a United Nations mandate. The strikes are meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, an ally of Riyadh.

About 6,400 people have reportedly lost their lives in the Saudi airstrikes. According to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), 505 children have been among the fatalities.

The Yemeni army and allied Popular Committees have, meanwhile, been retaliating the Saudi aggression by striking targets inside Saudi Arabia.

Most recently, the Yemeni forces destroyed several military vehicles in the southwestern Saudi region of Jizan, which borders Yemen.
