The Saudi-led coalition aircraft stepped up their airstrikes on Yemen on Sunday, launching more than 50 air raids targeting the provinces of Shabwa, Marib, Jawf, Amran and Saada, security sources reported.
The sources confirmed that the coalition warplanes targeted Shabwa with 30 raids, most of them on Ayn and Usailan districts, while Marib was hit with 14 airstrikes, including 12 on Al-Balaq area in Al-Wadi district and two others on Al-Jouba district.
The coalition aircraft also launched a raid on al-Yatama area in Khab Washa’af district of Jawf, while two raids targeted Al-Boqa and Al-Ajasher areas off Najran region at the northern border.

According to the sources, the coalition fighter jets hit the communications network in Al-Abdin area, south of Saada city, two times, and targeted the communications network in Al-Safra’a district in the same province with two airstrikes.
Meanwhile, the coalition warplanes waged a raid on the communications network in Bani Ghaima area of Bani Suraim district, and another raid on the communications network in Sabih Mount in Khamer district of Amran province.
