Saudi vessels target southwestern Yemen, kill 10


SANA, Jan 17: Ten people have been killed in rocket attacks by Saudi military vessels against a residential neighborhood in Yemen’s southwestern coastal province of Ta’izz.

Unnamed local sources said the Saudi craft fired a barrage of rockets at a village in the Maqbanah district of the province, which is situated 346 kilometers south of the capital, Sana’a, on Tuesday morning, also injuring dozens of people injured, Arabic-language Saba news agency reported.

Shortly afterward, Saudi military aircraft carried out an airstrike against a truck as it was traveling along a road in the al-Khawkhah district of the western coastal province, of Hudaydah. The attack claimed the life of a civilian.

Additionally, five people were killed and two others injured when Saudi fighter jets pounded a market in the Haydan district of the northwestern province of Sa’ada.

Saudi jets also launched three attacks against an area in the Red Sea port city of Mukha, though no reports of casualties and the extent of damage inflicted were reported.

Saudi warplanes conducted two aerial attacks against an area in the city of Sirwah, which lies about 120 kilometers east of the capital, as well. No reports of casualties were available.

Farming lands in the Abs district of the northwestern Hajjah Province were also bombarded, but no words on possible casualties were available.
