Death Toll In Yemen’s Jawf, Ta’iz Strikes Rises To 35

The death toll from the latest Saudi airstrikes on Yemen’s provinces of al-Jawf and Taiz has risen to 35.

According to official figures, Sunday’s attacks killed 18 people and wounded dozens more in al-Hazm, the capital of the northern province of al-Jawf.

Saudi warplanes also targeted residential areas south of the Yemeni southwestern province of Taiz, killing 17 people, including five women.

The deadly attacks were carried out after Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters, backed by allied armed forces, managed to control al-Hazm city of al-Qaeda militants.

Reports say Yemeni forces have regained control of all military bases and governmental offices in al-Hazm.

Saudi fighter jets also bombarded the mountainous Faj Attan region in the capital, Sana’a, as well as the customs office of Harad city in the northwestern province of Hajjah.
