At least nine civilians, including two women, have been killed and a number of others wounded in Saudi Arabia’s airstrikes on residential buildings in Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib.
According to Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, the aerial aggression occurred on Sunday, when Saudi warplanes bombed homes in Ale-Massad neighborhood in Sirwah district. Earlier in the day, Saudi jets had bombed Sirwah eight more times.
Separately, the Yemeni navy has announced that its forces managed to target a warship belonging to the Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen off the coast of Mukha port city in Ta’izz Province.
A military source told the Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that the warship was targeted on Sunday night with an appropriate weapon, without elaborating.
The source noted that the warship was carrying out hostile acts in the territorial waters of Yemen when it was targeted.
The warship is the eleventh vessel hit by the Yemeni army and popular committees since the start of the operations conducted in reaction to the Saudi aggression. More than 10 war boats were also targeted during the period.

Oh, do pull the other one, m’learned lords. What kind of a sick joke do you call this?
For all the legal niceties and nuances, the court judgement yesterday on Britain’s billions of arms sales to Saudi Arabia is a green light to the blood-soaked Gulf despotism to continue its murderous assault on the people of Yemen.
Over 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen since March 2015 when the Saudis began their brutal bombing campaign, using British warplanes, British bombs, British training, British military advice and British diplomatic cover.
Almost the whole population of the country, 24 million people, are at risk of starvation and are reliant on food aid from under-resourced foreign agencies.
To make things worse, that food is going to run out. That’s because the Saudis have been targeting clean water facilities leading to 300,000 reported cases of cholera since the end of April.
Over 1,700 people have died from the disease, which should be easily preventable but given the absolute desperation in Yemen and the lack of basic resources is not.
Aid workers say that the extra food needed to keep cholera victims alive could exhaust their supply by September.
So those merely hungry will be pushed to the brink of starvation, those already starving will die.
The situation is so dire because the Saudis and their murderous coalition have imposed a blockade on the country, strictly controlling what goes in.
Add in the tight-fisted nature of the so-called “international community” and humanitarian agencies have little to work with.
This is what yesterday’s judgement means. It is not a bland legal point; it is the lives of literally millions of starving people.
At a very basic level it shows again that our arms export controls are not fit for purpose, unless that purpose is to fuel wars around the world.
Not least when those despots are Saudi Arabian despots, ruling over a country formed with the vital assistance of — surprise! – British arms exports to a murderous thug, Ibn Saud, whose conquest of the peninsula cost the lives of 400,000 people. It’s been 100 years, why spoil a good thing?
As shown in sickening and comprehensive detail by the historian Mark Curtis, British foreign policy has been and remains a malign influence in the world, stirring up conflict and great bloodshed in order to achieve cynical aims.
Only a radical transformation can end this and begin to repair the extensive damage caused by our rules.
That radical transformation cannot include quibbling about selling arms to a blatantly murderous regime, but must centre on achieving real peace throughout the world.
MOST AMERICANS ARE OBLIVIOUS TO STARVATION CRISES OVERSEAS “Twenty million people are at risk of starving to death in the crisis-afflicted countries of Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia and Yemen. A staggering 85 percent of Americans don’t know that, or are only dimly aware.” [HuffPost]
