Sanna | WTNS | Nov 07:Saudi fighter jets have launched a series of airstrikes against residential areas in Yemen’s Ma’rib and al-Jawf provinces.

The al-Masirah television network reported that the warplanes fired five missiles at Ma’rib’s Medghal district on Friday.

The Saudi bomber jets also dropped a missile in al-Jawf’s Khabb wa ash Sha’af district and another in Rahabah neighborhood of the same province, the report added.

There has been no report yet on the number of casualties.

Saudi Arabia launched a devastating military aggression against its southern neighbor in March 2015 in collaboration with a number of its allied states, and with arms support from the US and several Western countries.

The aim was to return to power a Riyadh-backed former regime and defeat the Houthi Ansarullah movement that has taken control of state matters.

The war has failed to achieve its goals, but killed tens of thousands of innocent Yemenis and destroyed the impoverished country’s infrastructure. The UN refers to the situation in Yemen as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

Yemeni fighters regularly target positions inside Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s bloody military campaign against the nation.
