Saudi Air Strikes Target Aid Convoy In Yemen

More than a dozen were reportedly killed and several others wounded in a fresh wave of Saudi air attacks in Yemen. The strikes also targeted a humanitarian aid convoy.

Press TV report: Witnesses said the Saudi fighter jets on Sunday fired several missiles on two aid trucks that were heading toward the southeastern city of Taiz to distribute humanitarian supplies among crisis-stricken people, Yemen’s al-Masirah satellite TV network reported.

Three people lost their lives and nine others wounded in the attack, according to the report.

Separately, more than 24 people were killed after Saudi warplanes bombarded a base run by Ansarullah fighters in a region situated between the southern Yemeni provinces of Abyan and al-Bayda, late on Saturday, according to a report published by Yemen-based Arabic-language Wattan news agency.

The report added that 21 Ansarullah revolutionaries as well as three civilians lost their lives in the airborne raid. The extent of the material damage caused by the strike was not immediately available.

Saudi warplanes also struck another region situated between al-Bayda and Shabwa provinces. There were no immediate reports on possible casualties.

In another development, 20 Ansarullah fighters were killed when militants loyal to Yemen’s fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi launched a surprise attack on them in the town of Ad Dali’, situated over 280 kilometers (183 miles) south of Sana’a.

Four other Ansarullah members were killed in another ambush by pro-Hadi militants in the southern city of Lahij.
