Nine Yemeni civilians killed in separate Saudi airstrikes

Nine Yemeni civilians have been killed during Saudi airstrikes on residential areas in the provinces of Sa’ada and Sana’a as the civilian casualties of Riyadh’s military campaign keep growing.
According to Yemen’s al-Masirah television, a Saudi airstrike on a market in Sa’ada Province left four people dead and two others wounded on Thursday.
In another such attack on the Bani Hareth district of Sana’a Province, a woman lost her life and a child was injured. Saudi warplanes also pounded Yemeni homes in the Nihm district of Sana’a Province, killing three people and wounding two others.
Meanwhile, another woman was also killed in artillery attacks by pro-Saudi militias in Ta’izz Province.
In response, Yemeni armed forces ambushed Saudi troops in the mountainous areas of Saudi Arabia’s southern Jizan Province, killing four of them.
Saudi Arabia has been leading a brutal military campaign against Yemen since March 2015. The kingdom has also imposed an aerial and naval blockade on its impoverished southern neighbor.
The Saudi aggression, which seeks to restore Yemen’s ex-government to power, has killed over 12,000 Yemenis, according to the latest tallies.
Over the past two years, Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement has been running state affairs and defending the nation against Saudi aggression.

On Thursday, the Yemeni Foreign Ministry slammed the Arab League’s support for the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen in a declaration issued at the end of its annual summit in Jordan.
In Wednesday’s declaration, the Arab League called for peace talks among Yemeni opposing sides based on a proposal by the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
Yemen’s Foreign Ministry criticized the Arab League’s call for peace in Yemen while Saudi warplanes continue to bombard the country.
It also noted that the Arab League’s support for Saudi Arabia’s airstrikes on Yemen showed the animosity of the Arab bloc towards the Yemeni nation.
The ministry, however, welcomed any prospect of peace, which would put an end to the Saudi war.
