Saudi Warplanes attacked a checkpoint outside the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Wednesday, claiming the lives of five civilians in a taxi and two armed personnel manning the site, witnesses said.
The bombing in the Masajed district about 10 km west of Sanaa caused the car to careen into a nearby gas station, setting it ablaze and complicating rescue efforts, they said.
A Saudi-led military coalition has launched thousands of air strikes against the impoverished nation.
Starting in March of 2015, the Saudi-led war, which has been accompanied by a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen, had so far martyred over 12,000 people in the impoverished state, left 70 percent of the country's 27 million population in desperate need of humanitarian aid, and caused the worst cholera outbreak in the world there.
