7 People Killed in Saudi Airstrikes on Yemen.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi Arabia launched air raids on the Yemeni Province of Sa'ada, killing at least 7 civilians, reports said Wednesday.

Seven civilians, including women and children, were killed in Saudi airstrikes in Razih district in Sa'ada.

Saudi Arabia conducted several airstrikes on residential areas across Yemen and bombed a hospital run by Doctors without Borders, sources said Tuesday.

Saudi jets conducted four airstrikes on Kuhlan district in Sa'ada province.

A Saudi-led airstrike has also hit a hospital run by medical aid group Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in the Yemeni city of Sa'ada, according to the group's statement.

The Saudi-led coalition conducted several airstrikes in Yemen Monday night. Patients and staff of the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) hospital were inside the building when it was hit by the airstrike.

No casualties have been reported yet. Local media reports suggested that several people were injured in the attack.

Meanwhile, Saudi air raids hit Ta'iz province, killing a civilian and injuring 2 others.

The kingdom's warplanes also conducted three airstrikes on Huth district in Amran province.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 217 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,875 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
