Saudis target Yemen with airstrikes, artillery attacks

TEHRAN, Jan. 02 (MNA) – Saudi-led coalition forces in the past day have conducted attacks on the Yemeni province of Al Hudaydah with missiles and artillery.

Saudi reconnaissance and armed drones also targeted the regions of Hays and Maqbanah 9 times, according to the reports.

Also on Sunday, local sources reported that 14 people were wounded during the attacks carried out by Saudi forces in the northern regions of Yemen.

6 of the injured were African immigrants and 8 of them were Yemeni citizens.

Local sources in Yemen on Sunday afternoon also reported that the sound of a massive explosion was heard in the city of Aden.

According to local sources, the sound of the explosion was caused by a sound bomb that was thrown by unknown people.

Several other Yemeni media announced that a huge fire broke out in the warehouse belonging to the militias supported by the UAE in Aden.

Saudi Arabia launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in collaboration with its Arab allies and with arms and logistical support from the United States and other Western states.

The objective was to re-instate the Riyadh-friendly regime of former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and crush Yemen’s Ansarullah popular resistance movement, which has been running state affairs in the absence of a functioning government in Yemen.

While the Saudi-led coalition has failed to achieve any of its objectives, the war has killed hundreds of thousands of Yemenis and spawned the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
