A new Saudi air raid in Yemeni Capital has killed at least 15 civilians and has injured 25 others near the village of Bilad al-Rus, South of Sana’a.

According to residents, the attack was carried out on Wednesday, targeting an area near the village of Bilad al-Rus, around 40 km (25 miles) south of Sana’a.

The families displaced by the nine months of the Saudi war against Yemen had been taking shelter in the area.

Saudi warplanes also pounded the province of Amran, situated 53 kilometers (33 miles) northwest of the capital, with unconfirmed reports that several people were killed.

Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah fighters and allied forces killed five soldiers inside Saudi Arabia and 10 pro-Saudi militants in the southwestern province of Ta’izz.

Saudi Arabia has been carrying out military strikes against Yemen since March 2015. More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since the strikes began.

The attacks have also taken a heavy toll on the country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools and factories.

The Saudi military has also blocked the flow of relief aid into Yemen, creating an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in the impoverished Arabian Peninsula state; Press TV reported.
