Saudi coalition attacks mine-collecting facility in Sanaa
A guard, who has been collecting Saudi coalition landmines, has been martyred in the airstrikes on Bani Matar, Sanaa.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported today that the Saudi-led coalition targeted the mosques' area near Bani Matar district, west of the capital Sanaa.
A guard responsible for collecting landmine remnants in the mosque area has also been martyred in Bani Matar after two airstrikes hit the area dawn this morning.
In Marib, the Saudi coalition warplanes launched several airstrikes on Al-Juba and Al-Wadi districts, in addition to striking the west of the governorate in Madghal and Sirwah with two raids.
The Yemen Executive Mine Action Centre (YEMAC) confirmed that the Saudi coalition targeted the center's waste collection area near the mosques' area in the Bani Matar district.
In a statement, the center confirmed that "The coalition of aggression targeted the mine collection area to obliterate the weapons it used to kill the Yemeni people with, be it cluster bombs or airstrike remnants," noting that "The US-Saudi-Emirati aggression seeks to hide the danger of the weapons and their sources by bombing what was collected."
The center asserted that the Saudi coalition holds full responsibility for the safety of the citizens in neighboring villages, in addition to the harmful consequences of blowing up the remnants. The center explains that most of the remnants spread across homes, farms and pipelines linking Sanaa to Al-Hudaydah.
Battles are further continued between Sanaa's governmental forces and the Hadi forces, which are backed by Saudi coalition aircraft, at the Haradh border front in Hajjah governorate, northwest Yemen.
In total, the Saudi coalition warplanes launched 23 raids on the governorates of Marib, Hajjah and Saada.
