  • Saudi-led coalition warplanes bomb northern Yemen

Yemeni Al-Masirah Network said that the Saudi-led coalition warplanes bombed Baqim city in northern Yemen's Saada province three times on Friday.

Iran PressMiddle East: According to the Al-Masirah network, the Saudi-led coalition fighters have also targeted the "Al-Mazraq" area in Yemen's northwestern province of Haja.

No casualties and damages reported.

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.
