Saudi forces target Yemeni telecommunications network

The US-backed Saudi-led coalition fighter jets have launched airstrikes on telecommunication networks in Amran and Saada provinces, a security official said on Sunday.

The official affirmed that the warplanes launched 2 strikes on a communication network in Al-Safra district, and a strike on the other network in Al-Abdin area, south of Saada city.

Moreover, fighter jets carried out a series of strikes on the telecommunication networks in Raydah district and Bani Ghaima area of Bani Surim district, as well as Jabal Sabih in Khamer district of Amran province.

The Yemeni Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology strongly condemned the coalition’s targeting of communications networks, stations and towers in Saada, Amran and Jawf, stressing that “targeting communications services and facilities deprives tens of thousands of citizens of communications services and will double their suffering.”
