The Houthi Ansarullah movement has strongly denounced a recent Saudi airstrike on a weapons depot in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, which killed around 40 civilians.
The Ansarullah movement said in a statement that the Monday attack on the missile depot in Faj Attan district further exposed the barbarity of the Saudi regime, Samapress.net reported.
According to latest figures from four hospitals, the death toll of the Saudi airstrikes on the missiles depot has risen to 38 civilians, with a further 532 wounded.
Three employees of Al-Yemen Al-Yawm television channel, one of them a journalist, were among those killed.
The twin strikes triggered massive blasts tat razed nearby houses and shook faraway districts.
Elsewhere in the statement, the Ansarullah movement said Saudi Arabia is engaged in killing Yemenis and destroying the Arab country in collaboration with Israel and the US.
Ansarullah also warned that Riyadh is trying to impose an all-out blockade on Yemen in violation of international law.
Saudi officials mistakenly believe that the kingdom is capable of bringing the Yemenis to their knees by bombarding civilians and killing innocents, the statement said.
Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 - without a UN mandate - in a bid to restore power to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a close ally of Riyadh.
According to reports, over 2,700 people have been killed during the aggression.
The humanitarian situation in Yemen is rapidly deteriorating. Many international aid organizations have sought to dispatch medical and other humanitarian supplies by air and sea to civilians in need.
