Saudi Jets Stage Massive Air Raid on Sana’a ~ Yemeni Hezbollah seized military checkpoint at Najran border, captured 6 Saudi soldiers and seized all military ammo ~ Yemen Updates: 19 May 2015
TEHRAN (FNA)– Saudi fighter jets hit residential areas in the Northern Yemeni city of Sana’a on Tuesday, leaving dozens of people dead and injured.
The Saudi warplanes pounded civilian areas in Eastern Sana’a and claimed the lives of large groups of people in their 55th day of aggression against the impoverished country.
On Monday, Sana’a was repeatedly pummeled by Riyadh’s jets two days after a five-day truce expired. Saudi Arabia bombed Yemeni cities over 30 times even during the so-called ceasfire.
Earlier today, Saudi warplanes bombed the Northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada, and killed dozens of people and injured many more.
Local reports said the Saudi fighter jets pounded civilian areas in Southern Sa’ada in their raid today, killing a woman and a child.
Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to FNA tallies, the Saudi attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 3,815 civilians, mostly women and children.

Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement has called for the presence of Iran in any UN-brokered peace negotiations aimed at ending the Saudi aggression against the impoverished Arab state.
The Ansarullah, in a statement released on Monday evening, insisted on Tehran’s participation in the talks, which Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, the new UN peace envoy to Yemen, is preparing to hold in Geneva, Switzerland, on May 28, Arabic-language Yemen Press news agency reported.
On Monday, Hamza al-Houthi, a member of the Houthis’ political office, called on all Yemeni rival groups to partake in the forthcoming Geneva peace talks.
“It is essential that the conference in Geneva started from the point at which the national inter-Yemeni dialogue, held under UN auspices and subsequently disrupted by the Saudi aggression, was interrupted,” he told Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency.
Houthi emphasized that the participation of all parties in the talks is “necessary.”
The Ansarullah movement, however, had previously slammed the recent Yemen talks in Saudi Arabia, saying it would only engage in dialog inside Yemen or a neutral country. The group says the negotiations, whose last session was held on Tuesday, did not represent the demands of the Yemeni population.
