The US-backed Saudi-led coalition on Wednesday launched two airstrikes on Yemen’s northern Jawf province, a security official told Yemen Press Agency.

According to the official, the airstrikes targeted Anbarah area in Matoon district, damaging private properties.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of Hadi back to power and crushing the Ansarullah movement.

The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the war has claimed more than 100,000 lives over the past four and a half years.

The UN says over 24 million Yemenis are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including 10 million suffering from extreme levels of hunger.
