Saudi fighter jets have carried out a new round of attacks on residential areas in four provinces in northern Yemen, killing more than a dozen people.

Yemen’s al-Masirah TV said on Monday that Saudi fighter jets launched attacks on various districts in two provinces of Jawf and Saada, killing 15 people.

The report said ten of the victims were members of a family in Jawf. Five others were killed in attacks which targeted a marketplace in the city of Haydan in Saada, a major stronghold of the Houthi movement and a repeated target of Saudi strikes over the past months.

Attacks were also reported in northern province of Sanaa, where several people were injured after Saudi warplanes bombarded houses and shops in Bani Zabyan. Bombs were also dropped in Hamdan city in the same province, with no immediate details available on the potential casualties.

Further to the northwest in Hajjah Province, Saudis attacked at least three cities, namely Mustaba, Hayran and Harad, with reports saying most of the attacks targeted trucks carrying food and agricultural products in the area.
