One man killed, another injured in Saudi-led airstrikes on a construction company in Wesab

Local residents and eyewitnesses told Almasdaronline that the fighter jets of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition launched, Tuesday, three airstrikes in Wesab Al Asfal District in western Dhamar province, in central Yemen.

 

They said the airstrikes hit the building of Saba Company for Constructions in Mishrafa area, killing one guard and injuring another.

 

The local residents and eyewitnesses added that the airstrikes targeted the gate and the warehouses of the company's building.

 

It's believed that the airstrikes targeted the dynamite warehouses, but locals said there was nothing in  the repositories, especially after the company's works on paving the road, from Husseiniah town (Hodeida) to Dhamar city, came to a halt.

 

The airstrikes were the first attack in the district of Wesab Al Asfal, which came to take place in line with ground battles off Yemen's western coast. Mishrafa area lies on the border between the provinces of Hodeida and Dhamar.

 

Two days ago, upgraded fighter jets came into service, after the coalition have deployed F15SA for the battles in the Red Sea coastal city of Mocha, in western Taiz.

 

And towards the end of last year, Saudi Arabia has received the first batch of these upgraded F15s, in spite of the U.S. Congress' objection to an arms deal of 84 fighter jets, which Riyadh has made with Washington in 2012.
