According to the Human Rights Watch, Saudi Arabia airstrike killed 60 civilians during at least six "unlawful" in residential areas of Yemen's capital of Sanaa during September and October, an international rights group said in a report published Monday.

The report added that the coalition had repeatedly used bombs in areas inhabited by non-combatants, which increased the likelihood of casualties among civilian population.

"The Saudi Arabia coalition fighting in Yemen carried out at least six apparently unlawful airstrikes in residential areas of the capital, Sanaa, in September and October 2015, killing 60 civilians," Human Rights Watch's report said.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 271 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi aggression has so far killed at least 7,182 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

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