In new Saudi airstrikes against residential areas in Yemen on Wednesday at least four civilians have been killed and several others have been wounded.

Saudi military aircraft struck an outdoor market in the Haydan district of the northern mountainous province of Sa’ada, on Wednesday, leaving three people dead and three others injured, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.

A child was later killed when Saudi fighter jets bombarded al-Sharqabi village in the same Yemeni district.

Additionally, Saudi warplanes bombed a fuel station in the Majz district of Sa’ada. The massive explosion shook the area and caused material damage to a number of nearby buildings.

Saudi warplanes also carried out multiple air strikes against Bayhan District in the central province of Shabwah as well as Attan, Hafid and Nihm districts in the west-central province of Sana’a.

The developments took place a day after three civilians, including an elderly woman, were killed and another two injured in a Saudi aerial attack against the Kitaf wa Al Boqe'e district in Sa’ada Province.

Yemeni army soldiers also thwarted an attack by militiamen loyal to former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi against the Usaylan district in Shabwah Province, killing scores of pro-Saudi gunmen in the process.

Elsewhere in the Karsh region of Yemen’s southwestern province of Lahij, Yemeni forces targeted a battle tank belonging to Saudi-backed militiamen.

Yemen has been under Saudi military strikes since late March 2015. The onslaught was launched in a bid to reinstate Hadi, who has stepped down as Yemen’s president but is now seeking to grab power by force.

The United Nations puts the death toll from the military aggression at about 10,000.

Yemeni forces are fighting back the Saudi military aggression and occasionally launch retaliatory attacks on the kingdom’s soil; Press TV reported.
