"Yemen’s General Organization of Antiquities and Museums announced on Friday that at least 23 historical sites and monuments, namely six ancient towns, six castles, three museums, two mosques, four palaces and four ancient walls, have been destroyed or damaged in the Saudi aerial attacks, Yemen’s official Saba news agency reported."

The organization said that the sites were located in the central Yemeni city of Ma’rib, the southern port city of Aden, the southwestern city of Dhale, Sa’adah in northwestern Yemen and the western port city of Hudaydah as well as the cities of Ta’izz, Shabwa and Hajjah in the south of the country.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 241 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,938 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures; FNA reported.
