Yemen : Saudi airstrikes leave seven people dead including a child

The latest wave of Saudi air raids against Yemen has claimed the lives of seven people, including a child, in Yemen.

According to reports, five people, including four women, lost their lives and 10 others sustained injuries in the Saudi air raids on the Khawkhah district of Yemen’s western Hudaydah Province on Tuesday.

Saudi warplanes also launched three air raids against the Baqim district and four assaults against the Hidan district, both located in the northwestern Yemen Sa’ada Province. The attacks killed a woman and a child.

Elsewhere in the west, Saudi aircraft launched two airstrikes against Sana’a Province.

Yemen has been under military strikes on a daily basis since Saudi forces launched their military aggression against their southern neighbor on March 26, in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

About 6,400 people have reportedly lost their lives in the Saudi airstrikes, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured since March. According to the United Nations Children’s Fund, 505 children have been among the fatalities.
