Saudi attacks claim three lives in Yemen

Press TV- At least three Yemenis have been killed in separate attacks by the Saudi military targeting western Yemen.

On Wednesday, the Saudi aircraft bombarded the port city of al-Hudaydah in west-central Yemen, killing two people, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network reported.

Separately, Saudi border guards opened fire at residential structures in a village in the Monabbih district of Sa’ada Province, which is located in Yemen’s extreme northwest. The attack left a civilian dead.

Saudi warplanes also dropped cluster bombs on the Wadi al-Jarrah base controlled by Yemeni forces in the kingdom’s Jizan region.

Also on Wednesday, counterattacks by Yemeni snipers shot dead two Saudi troops at Jizan’s al-Farizah military base.

Yemeni forces also aborted an attempt by Saudi-allied militants to advance in al-Ghayl District of the northwestern Yemen al-Jawf Province.

The operation killed and injured a number of the militants.

The Saudi war against Yemen, which started in March 2015, has so far killed over 11,400 people, according to the latest tally by a Yemeni monitoring group.

The invasion is aimed at restoring power to Riyadh-allied former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The Yemeni army, backed by Ansarullah fighters and allied popular forces, has been defending the country against the Saudi aggression.
