Saudi jets attack civilian targets in Yemen’s Marib

Tasnim – Saudi warplanes continued their relentless military aggression against Yemen in the central province of Marib, leaving dozens of the Arab country’s civilians dead and injured.

On Sunday, Saudi jets bombed residential areas in the areas of al-Makhdra and al-Rabiah in Sirwah district, Saba news agency reported.

A large group of residents, including women and children, were killed during the raids.

In a separate development, Yemeni forces and their allies launched a retaliatory attack against Saudi-backed militants in Mouza district in the southwestern province of Taiz, and managed to recapture four key hilltops there.

The attacks against Saudi forces came in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians and destruction of Yemen’s infrastructure by the Saudi-led coalition.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than two years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 12,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
