3 civilians killed as Saudi jets bomb regions across Yemen

At least three people have been killed in the latest Saudi military airstrikes against residential neighborhoods in Yemen.

On Tuesday morning, Saudi fighter jets pounded residential buildings in the Bani al-Harith district north of the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, leaving two women and a child dead, Arabic-language al-Masirah television reported.

Saudi warplanes also struck the Attan and Nihm districts in the northern province of Sana’a, but there were no immediate reports of casualties and the extent of damage inflicted.

Aerial attacks were also reported in the Dhahyan district of Yemen’s northwestern and mountainous province of Sa’ada, located 240 kilometers (150 miles) north of the capital, Sana’a, as well as the al-Maton district in the northern al-Jawf Province.

On Monday, a Saudi airstrike hit a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders, also known by its French acronym MSF, in Yemen’s Hajjah Province, killing at least 25 people.

The medical charity said another 20 people were injured in the attack in Hajjah’s district of Abs.
