Yemen : saudi warplanes kill 8 fishermen

At least eight Yemeni fishermen have lost their lives after Saudi Arabia’s warplanes bombed their boasts in the Red Sea.

Yemen’s al-Masirah TV reported on Saturday that the fishermen were killed near Hanish Island in the western province of Hudaydah.

In a similar attack on Thursday, Saudi jets pounded several boats off the coast of Zaqar Island, killing 20 fishermen and injuring several others.

Meanwhile, Saudi warplanes targeted a residential area in the northern Sa’ada province. The airborne assault left a Yemeni woman and her son dead and several others wounded.

Yemen has been witnessing ceaseless airstrikes by Saudi Arabia since March 26. The military aggression is supposedly meant to undermine Ansarullah and bring Hadi back to power.

The Saudi aggression has reportedly claimed the lives of more than 7,500 people and injured over 16,000 others. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.

Human rights groups and international organizations have voiced deep concern over the rising number of civilian casualties in Yemen, calling for an end to the conflict.
