Yemeni Al-Masira TV reported on Friday night that at least 16 Yemeni civilians had been killed in an attack by fighter jets of the Saudi coalition on the Maqbanah district in the Taiz province of the country.

Iran PressMiddle East: According to Yemeni sources, due to the continued flight of Saudi coalition fighter jets, it is not possible for rescue teams to reach the area to remove debris and collect the bodies of the victims.

Al-Masira reported that a number of children were also among those killed.

Fighter jets from the Saudi coalition also bombed Sanaa International Airport and surrounding areas at least twice on Friday night.

In recent weeks, the Saudi coalition has repeatedly targeted residential areas in various Yemeni provinces.

With the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries, Saudi Arabia has launched a military invasion of Yemen and land, sea, and air siege since March 2015.

The outbreak of war by Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen has so far killed and injured hundreds of thousands of Yemenis and displaced 4 million.

Saudi Arabia's military aggression has also destroyed more than 85 percent of Yemen's infrastructure, leaving the country severely short of food and medicine. 219
