Saudi Fighter Jets Kill 13 Yemenis in Attack on Bus
Thu Oct 29, 2015 15:40:44

At least 13 Yemeni civilians have been killed in Saudi military attacks on a bus carrying the employees of a private company in Yemen’s southwestern Ta’izz Province.

The bus was hit on the road linking the city of Ta’izz with the capital, Sana’a, on Thursday. Fourteen people were also wounded in the attack.

Saudi fighter jets have also targeted a mosque and a house in the Saqayn district of the northwestern province of Sa’ada.

Warplanes also carried out three airstrikes on Kitaf district of the same province.

Earlier in the day, Riyadh launched a series of airstrikes on the Sirwah district of Ma’rib Province.

The attacks come two days after Saudi Arabia bombarded a hospital in the Heedan district of Sa’ada, run by medical charity group Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

Yemen has been under Saudi airstrikes on a daily basis since March 26 when Riyadh launched a ferocious military campaign against the impoverished nation.

The kingdom is apparently trying to undermine the Ansarullah movement, and return fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi to power.

About 7,000 people have lost their lives in the Saudi attacks while nearly 14,000 others have been injured; Press TV reported.
