Saudi warplanes have carried
out a series of fresh airstrikes against residential neighborhoods
across Yemen, but there is no immediate report on possible casualties
and extent of damage. 

They fired several missiles at
various areas in Razih district of the northwestern Sa’adah province on
Thursday morning, the al-Ahed website reported.
warplanes also launched several attacks against al-Dhaher district in
the same province and two airstrikes against Kuhlan district of the
northwestern Hajjah province.
The attacks came a day after five
Saudi troops were killed when Yemeni army forces backed by fighters from
Popular Committees mounted two separate attacks in retaliation
against airstrikes.
Yemeni snipers targeted them on the
border regions of al-Rabuah and al-Khuba in ’s southwestern
province of Jizan, reports said.
Yemen has been under military
strikes by Saudi Arabia since March 26, 2015. The Saudi war was launched
in a bid to crush the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to
Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who has resigned as Yemen’s president.
