Saudi-sponsored warplanes have carried out an airstrike on a village in the country’s southwestern province of Taiz in the war-torn country’s northwest, killing at least two civilians and injuring a further two.
The warplanes struck the village of Al-Mabruk, in the Hajj and Hajj-Bakr areas, according to local news sources.
The local news reported that at least one of the victims was a mother and her three children.
Another was reportedly killed when a bomb exploded nearby.
The third was reportedly a woman who died after being wounded by shrapnel during the strike.
The airstrikes hit a nearby area of the Hajjah, according a statement from the coalition’s Public Information Office.
On Monday, Saudi-backed coalition warplanes attacked another village, the al-Makarouni neighborhood of al-Takbir in the al Jawf area, killing two civilians, according the statement.
The coalition has been targeting the area in recent weeks, following an increase in airstrikes in the area by Saudi-allied forces.
The coalition also targeted the town of Qala al-Wafir in al Jawfur, killing three civilians and wounding three others.
The area has been heavily damaged in recent months by coalition airstrikes, including two air raids last month.
The strikes were carried out by the Saudi-based Popular Defense Forces, the statement added.
According to the Yemeni government-backed news outlet al-Masdar, Saudi Arabia launched its latest offensive in Yemen in December and has been fighting alongside the internationally-recognized government, which is fighting Houthi rebels.
The war in Yemen has killed over 10,000 people and displaced more than half a million since the coalition launched the operation.
The conflict has claimed the lives of nearly 7,000 civilians and forced nearly 7.5 million people to flee their homes.
