Incessant Saudi airstrikes kill 11 in Yemen

Nearly a dozen civilians, including two children, have been killed and several others injured when Saudi military aircraft mounted a raft of fresh airstrikes on various residential areas in crisis-plagued Yemen.

A civilian, identified as Abdullah al-Sharif, lost his life along his two children as Saudi fighters struck their house in the al-Matammah district of the northern Yemeni province of al-Jawf on Friday afternoon, Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.

Saudi warplanes also pounded an outdoor market in the province's Khabb wa ash Sha'af district, leaving at least two people dead and nine others injured. Local sources said the number of casualties would further rise due to the extent of the damage caused.

Elsewhere in Yemen’s western coastal province of Hudaydah, four people were killed and a number of others injured when Saudi jets hit al-Khawkhah district.

Furthermore, Saudi warplanes targeted a vehicle traveling along a road in Baqim district of the northern mountainous province of Sa’ada, killing the two occupants of the car.
