TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Eight Yemeni civilians were killed after Saudi-led warplanes pounded residential areas in the western port city of Hudaydah.

Saudi jets bombed civilian areas in al-Hali district in Hudaydah, killing eight people, a military official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Saba on Friday.

On September 12, at least 15 civilians, including one child, were killed by the Saudi-led coalition on the outskirts of Hudaydah.

About 20 civilians were also injured during Wednesday's bombings.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, back to power and crushing Ansarullah.

Some 15,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world's worst humanitarian disaster.
