The Saudi attack was carried out against the Far Al Udayn District of Ibb early on Saturday, claiming the lives of seven children and two women, al-Masirah satellite TV reported.

Saudi jets also bombarded the Ninth District of the capital, Sanaa, several times, but no reports on possible casualties were available.

Earlier on Friday, Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, had shot dead three Saudi troops in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern province of Jizan.

They had also killed over a dozen Saudi mercenaries inside Yemen.
