Yemeni forces destroy Saudi military vehicle killing all passengers in Aden
KONFRONTASI-Yemeni army forces backed by popular committees have destroyed a Saudi military vehicle in the southwestern port city of Aden.
The attack killed all of the vehicle's passengers as it was trying to infiltrate Aden, the Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported early on Tuesday.
Saudi jets also carried out attacks in the Harad district in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah.
Earlier in the day, several people were injured in Saudi raids on the Sahar district and Sa’ada city in country’s northwestern Sa’ada province.
Airstrikes were also carried out on two separate schools and several residential areas in the northwestern Amran province.
Riyadh began a military campaign against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in an attempt to undermine the Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
Based on UN figures, 3,261 people have been killed, 1,670 of whom were civilians, in the Saudi onslaught. However local sources put the death toll at over 4,500.[mr/ptv]
