Yemen has been under incessant Saudi strikes since March 26. The strikes are supposedly meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Riyadh has repeatedly used cluster bombs against the Yemenis during the past months. On Wednesday, Saudi jets reportedly dropped banned cluster bombs on Sa’ada and killed an unspecified number of civilians.

Some 7,000 people have lost their lives in the airstrikes, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured since late March.

As many as 114,000 others have also been forced to flee the war-stricken country due to the Saudi aggression, according to a UN report earlier this month; SABA News reported.
