Saudi jet fighters target Yemeni fishing boats

Tehran, Saudi Arabian jet fighters on Saturday attacked and destroyed four Yemeni fishing boats in the Red Sea Saturday, killing all fishermen on board, according to Almasirah news network.

There is no report on the exact number of fishermen killed in the Saudi air raid, Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Almasirah as saying.

Over the past two days, Saudi warplanes have been directly striking Yemeni fishermen and infrastructures of Hudaydah port.

Following the destruction of two Saudi war ships by Yemeni army and popular committees , Saudi Arabia has stepped up its attacked on al-Hudaydah province.

On Thursday, the Yemeni army and popular committees targeted Abu Dhabi air port with a Sammad 3 drone, inflicting damage on it.

Meanwhile, Head of Yemen's Supreme Revolutionary Committee Mohammad Ali Al-Houthi said on Saturday that the country's air force will enter into war with the Saudi-US aggressors soon.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for over three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, an ally of Riyadh.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
