Civilians were killed in Yemen as a result of air raids by Saudi Arabia,  SANA news agency reports on May 29 citing Yemeni media.

According to the agency, the Saudis bombarded Taiz province, where two civilians were killed, and Hajjah province, where 13 air strikes were conducted in the districts of Harad and Midi, where civilians also suffered.

According to the agency, in response to the aggression of Saudi Arabia, the Yemeni army struck at the mercenary forces of the Saudis in the Jizan area.

The military-political conflict in Yemen began with an uprising started by the Shiite movement Ansar Allah (Helpers/Supporters of God – Editor) (Houthis) in 2014. Houthis in less than a year captured most of Yemen.

However, with the support of the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia, the Yemen authorities managed to return part of the territory, including the city of Aden, where to date is their temporary capital. The rebels formed the Supreme Political Council, which is located in Sanaa.
