Yemeni forces have killed three Saudi troops in a retaliatory attack launched after a day of deadly airstrikes by the kingdom’s fighter planes.

Yemeni troops backed by fighters of the Ansarullah movement lunched the missile attack on a Saudi military base in the kingdom's southwestern region of Jizan on Saturday.

The attack was launched after a series of Saudi attacks on Yemeni soil, which claimed the lives of dozens of civilians. Just hours before the attack, Saudi jets targeted a civilian car in the province of Ta’izz and killed two people, after their warplanes targeted a school and other locations in the northwestern province of Sa'ada, killing several civilians, many of them children.

According to Doctors Without Borders (MSF), 10 school children died and 28 more were wounded in the school attack.

Six civilians, including three other children and a woman from the same family, were also killed when their home in Razih district of the province was targeted by a Saudi jet.
