Saudi Air Strike Killed 30 in Sana


Sana: The latest airstrikes carried out by Saudi warplanes killed more than 30 people in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a, officials said on Saturday. According to the security and medical authorities, the air raids targeted a camp belonging to fighters from Houthi Ansarullah movement as well as factories producing food and plastic in northern and western parts of the city.

Yemen has been under airstrikes by Saudi Arabia since late March last year. The Saudi military strikes were launched to supposedly undermine the Ansarullah movement and bring fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power.

Over 8,270 people, among them 2,236 children, have been killed and more than 16,000 others injured since March 2015. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
