Saudi warplanes kill five family members in Yemen’s Hudayda
Saudi warplanes have killed a family of five members, including three children, in Yemen’s Hudayda Governorate.
The Saudi airstrikes targeted a house in al-Tuhayat district in Hudaydah on Wednesday. The parents also died, local source reported to YemenExtra.
The attack comes hours after a similar airstrike that killed 14 people of a family, including women and children, in Tuhayat.
Furthermore, Yemeni Arabic-speaking Almasirah channel reported that 600 civilians have totally been killed and wounded in Saudi airstrikes since the beginning of December until Tuesday.
Saudi Arabia has been incessantly striking Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to crush the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement and reinstate the former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of the Riyadh regime.
At least 13,600 people have been killed since the onset of Saudi Arabia’s military campaign against Yemen in 2015. Much of the Arabian Peninsula country’s infrastructure, including hospitals, schools and factories, has been reduced to rubble due to the ruthless war.
On Tuesday, the International Red Cross pointed to massive starvation across Yemen on its Twitter page, warning, “Yemen is starving to death.”
The Saudi-led war has also triggered deadly cholera and diphtheria epidemic across impoverished Yemen.
