At least seven people have been killed in a Yemeni retaliatory attack on Saudi Arabia’s southern Najran region.
According to Saudi media, a rocket launched by Yemeni forces, backed by fighters from Yemen's Ansarullah movement, hit an industrial zone in Najran on Tuesday, killing four Saudis and three foreigners. The nationality of the foreigners was not immediately available
Such attacks are part of a drive by Houthis and allies to avenge more than 15 months of military aggression by Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, Saudi jets pounded residential buildings in Bani al-Harith district north of the Yemeni capital Sana’a, leaving two women and two children dead. Seventeen people were also injured in the Saudi airstrikes against Bani al-Harith.
Sixteen other Yemeni civilians were killed in attacks on a village near the capital, where nine others were also wounded.
Earlier in the day, Saudi fighter jets struck a vehicle as it was traveling along a road in the Abs district of the northern Yemeni province of Hajjah, leaving five people dead.
