The Saudi-led coalition warplanes launched tens of assaults in Yemen’s provinces of Sa’deh and Hajjah as well as Najran and Assir regions in Southern Saudi Arabia during the last one day.
According to Saba’a news agency, local sources in Yemen said that the Saudi fighter jets launched airstrikes on Walad Massoud region’s water canal in Sahar region of Sa’deh province in Northern Yemen.
Also the Haraz and Midi regions in Hajjah province in Western Yemen were 20 times pounded by the Saudi warplanes.
Meantime, the Saudi air force conducted 24 assaults on the two bases of al-Sharfeh and al-Shabakeh controlled by Yemeni forces and two raids on al-Taleh base in Najran region in Southern Saudi Arabia.
Also in the past 24 hours, the Saudi helicopters launched over 22 airstrikes on the positions of the Yemeni troops in Sahwah base in Assir region in Southern Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 15,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has drove the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
The cholera outbreak in Yemen which began in April, has also claimed 2,000 lives and has infected 700,000, as the nation has been suffering from what the World Health Organization (WHO) describes as the “largest epidemic in the world” amid a non-stop bombing campaign led by Saudi Arabia. Also Riyadh’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from traveling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
According to reports, the cholera epidemic in Yemen, which is the subject of a Saudi Arabian war and total embargo, is the largest recorded in modern history.
