Saudi-led military aircraft carried out a fresh wave of airstrikes against various areas across conflict-plagued Yemen, killing at least two civilians, local media reports said.

Fighter jets of the Riyadh-led coalition struck a medical facility under construction in the Al-Ma’yanah district of the capital province of Sana’a on Wednesday morning, leaving two citizens dead and injured as many, the Arabic-language Al-Masirah television network reported.

Saudi-led warplanes also targeted an area near a plastic factory in the Al-Thawra district of the province, but there were no immediate reports about possible casualties and the extent of damage caused, Press TV reported.

The development came hours after Saudi-led fighter jets conducted more than a dozen aerial assaults against Al-Jubah and Sirwah districts in Yemen’s central province of Marib, but no reports about possible casualties were quickly available.

On Tuesday evening, seven civilians, including an African refugee, suffered grave injuries when Saudi border guards indiscriminately fired shots at popular outdoor markets and residential buildings in Raqou area of the Monabbih district in the northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and other key Western powers, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing former government back to power and crushing the popular Ansarullah resistance movement.
