Over the last 24 hours, the Saudi Royal Air Force has conducted at least 60 airstrikes in the Saada Governorate of Yemen, killing a number of civilians as a result of their indiscriminate bombardment.

These airstrikes  over the Saada Governorate were launched by the Saudi Air Force in retaliation for the Houthi forces’ latest advance in the contested Jizan Region.

Yemen’s Saada Governorate is located along Saudi Arabia’s southern border; it has long been an anti-government stronghold.

They have probably no targeting help or they wouldn’t indiscriminately bomb market places etc… From the military POV, it’s TOTALLY counterproductive…
