  • Yemenis target Saudi mercenaries' positions in Marb

Yemeni army and popular committees on Saturday night targeted the positions of Saudi mercenaries in the central province of Marb with a ballistic missile, in response to the crimes of the Saudi coalition in Yemen.

Iran Press/ Middle East: Yemeni sources said 11 Saudi mercenaries were killed and 22 others were wounded in the missile attack.

Backed by the United States, the Saudi regime and some of its Arab allies invaded Yemen in 2015 and have enforced a strict blockade of the country by ground, air, and sea.

The Saudi war has affected over seven million children in Yemen who now face a serious threat of famine, according to UNICEF figures.

Over 6,000 children have either been killed or sustained serious injuries since 2015, the UN children’s agency said. The humanitarian situation in the country has also been exacerbated by outbreaks of cholera, polio, and measles.

The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the war in Yemen has claimed more than 91,000 lives over the past four and a half years.
