20 killed in Saudi airstrikes on Yemen’s Ibb

KONFRONTASI - At least 20 people have been killed in Saudi Arabia's airstrikes in al-Dalil district in the southwestern Yemeni city of Ibb.

According to the Yemeni al-Wasat newspaper on Tuesday, the Saudi airstrikes wounded a number of other people in the area.

The Saudi warplanes also targeted a gas station in the district, inflicting heavy damage on the facility.

The Yemeni newspaper added that the Saudi fighter jets destroyed al-Kasareh bridge, linking Ibb to the capital Sana'a in the attacks.

In the early hours of Tuesday, Saudi warplanes bombed a market and residential areas in Harad city in the northwestern Hajjah Province, killing 13 people and injuring 70 others.

At least 40 people were killed and 547 more injured as Saudi jets targeted a missile depot in Faj Attan district in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a on Monday.

Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 - without a UN mandate - in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a close ally of Riyadh.

According to reports, over 2,790 people have been killed during the aggression.

The humanitarian situation in Yemen is rapidly deteriorating. Many international aid organizations have sought to dispatch medical and other humanitarian supplies by air and sea to civilians in need.[ptv]
