Saudi airstrikes kill 7 across Yemen

Press TV- Saudi Arabian-led airstrikes conducted against various parts of Yemen have claimed the lives of seven people.

Reporting on Saturday, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network said Saudi-led warplanes had carried out strikes close to a university in the country’s capital of Sana’a, killing two people and injuring an unspecified number of others.

Elsewhere, in Sana’a Province’s Sanhan District, aerial attacks wounded two children and a woman.

The aircraft slew two civilians in strikes against residential buildings in the west-central Ma’rib Province.

Saudi-led attacks on the northwestern al-Hudaydah Province also killed three civilians.

More than 12,000 people have been killed in the Saudi-led war since March 2015, when Riyadh led a number of its allies in an invasion of Yemen, the Arab world’s already most impoverished country.

Saudi Arabia is seeking to restore a former Yemeni regime that was friendly to Riyadh.

Along with its allies, the Saudi regime has also imposed a blockade on Yemen, causing famine and a cholera epidemic caused by shortage of medicine.
