Yemen: Seven Yemenis killed, 12 injures in Saudi airstrike

At least seven people have been killed and 12 others wounded in an airstrike carried out by Saudi Arabia in Yemen’s western region despite a fragile truce.
Yemen’s al-Masirah television reported on Monday that the Saudi airstrike targeted the Haya al-Shuhada district of the city of al-Hudaydah.

The latest attack came shortly after six days of talks between a delegation representing the Houthi Ansarullah movement and representatives of Yemen’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi closed in the Swiss village of Magglingen.

At least five women were also killed in a Saudi airstrike against Yemen’s northwestern Sa’ada Province.

The Saudi attacks come despite a seven-day ceasefire deal that had been put in place on December 15, when the talks in Switzerland began.

Saudi Arabia’s military attacks against impoverished Yemen, which started in late March, have so far claimed the lives of more than 7,500 people and injured over 14,000 others. The airstrikes supposedly aim to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and bring Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, back to power.
