Saa, June 7: Airstrikes of the Saudi-led coalition forces killed 44 people and injured more than 100 others here on Sunday, media reported. The fighter jets bombed the headquarters of Yemen’s armed forces in central Saa, a densely populated area, killed 44 people and injured more than 100 others, Saba reported, citing a statement from the health ministry.

The state-run Saba news agency has been under control of the Shiite Houthi group since September 2014 when the group seized Saa.

The rescues teams are searching people who are believed under the rubble of their houses destroyed in the airstrikes, the report said.

Due to the severe shortage of medicines and medical equipment, as well as the increasing number of victims, the hospitals in Saa met difficulties to provide treatment for the needed, Saba said. (IANS)
