Saudi Arabian war crimes continued as at least 21 civilians, including women and children, have been killed in Saudi airstrikes targeting a residential area in the capital of Sa’ada province in northwestern Yemen.
Saudi forces fired at least 100 rockets on the city of Sa’ada in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The assault followed earlier aerial bombing targeting the provinces of Sa’ada and Hajjah.
On Tuesday, the head of Ansarullah politburo, Saleh Ali al-Sammad, praised the Yemeni nation’s strong resistance in the face of the Al Saud regime’s ongoing military aggression, stressing that Yemenis will give a befitting response to Riyadh.
The top Ansarullah figure underlined that the military offensive, which is in its 42nd day, was launched after US and Saudi statesmen felt they were losing ground in the wake of political developments in the impoverished Arab state.
Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.
On May 1, the World Health Organization said over 1,240 people lost their lives and 5,044 others were injured in Yemen from March 19 to April 27.
Hundreds of women and children are among the victims, according to the United Nations health agency.
