At least seven Yemeni civilians have been killed in aerial attacks carried out by Saudi fighter jets in Yemen’s northern Sa’ada Province.

On Thursday, Yemen’s al-Masirah TV reported that the victims lost their lives when Saudi warplanes hit their vehicle in the city of Baqam.

Saudi fighter jets reportedly targeted a number of different areas in Sa’ada. There were no reports on casualties from those attacks

Al-Masirah also reported that the Yemeni army, backed by the Popular Committees loyal to the Houthi rebels, gained complete control over a Saudi military base in the Saudi city of Najran.

They also managed to kill a number of Saudi soldiers after targeting Tabat al-Khazan area in Ta’izz Province.

According to Yemen’s official Saba Net news agency, the Yemeni army prevented Saudi troops from advancing in Ibb Province’s Bani Shabib, where they killed at least 15.

The developments came shortly after Saudi fighter jets mistakenly carried out attacks against the Riyadh-allied militants who fight against Houthi forces in Yemen’s southern province of Shabwah, killing nearly 18.

Yemen has been under military attack by Saudi Arabia since late March. The Saudi military strikes were launched to bring embattled Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power.

More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since March. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
