In Saudi military aircraft attacks to Yemen’s southwestern province of Taiz at least 10 civilians, among them women and children, have been killed, according to Press TV report.

Saudi fighter jets struck a vehicle as it was travelling along a road in Wazi'iyah District of the province, located about 350 kilometers (217 miles) south of the capital, Sana’a, on Friday, leaving all those on board dead, Yemen’s Arabic-language Khabar news agency reported.

Saudi warplanes also carried out two airstrikes against a school in the same Yemeni district. There were no immediate reports of possible casualties and the extent of damage inflicted.

Separately, Saudi jets hit several areas in Sirwah District of the central Yemeni province of Ma'rib, though no information on possible fatalities and the scope of damage was available.

Also on Friday, Saudi military aircraft fired a number of missiles into al-Hafa military base on the western outskirts of Sana'a. The Sabaha district of the capital was also bombarded several times. There were no reports of casualties.

Saudi Arabia launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26, 2015, in a bid to bring the country’s resigned president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh, back to power and undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

More than 8,400 people have been killed and at least 16,000 others injured since the onset of the aggression.

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