At least 30 Yemeni people have been killed in an airstrike by Saudi Arabia on Yemen’s southwestern province of Hajjah.

The victims are mostly workers at a mineral water factory in the district of Abs in the province, local media outlets reported on Sunday.

Reports also said that Saudi warplanes bombarded the district at least 15 times and many people sustained injuries in the deadly attacks.

Saudi Arabia also conducted 12 airstrikes on the district of Baqim in the province of Sa'ada, injuring at least one civilian.

Saudi fighter jets also bombarded as many as six times the area of Talh in the province. There has been no report on the possible number of casualties or size of damage caused in the raids.

Also on Saturday, Saudi warplanes bombarded an area in the district of Razeh in Sa’ada, killing at least one child.

The Saudi jets also bombarded the southwestern Yemeni province of Taiz, injuring eight civilians including four children. Similarly, residential areas in the provinces of Ma’rib and Hudaydah were targeted.

According to the World Health Organization, over 4,300 people have lost their lives in the conflict since late March, but local Yemeni sources say the fatality figure is much higher.
