Yemeni Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, citing local sources, reported that four children and two men were injured when Saudi warplanes bombarded al-Ardhiya village in the Mahliyah district of the province on Friday.
The report added that two of the injured children are in critical condition.
The development came on the same day that the deputy foreign minister of Yemen's National Salvation Government warned that al-Qaeda forces were joining Saudi-led mercenaries in Ma'rib province.
“The redeployment of al-Qaeda forces in Ma’rib is a major mistake that will serve no one and will cause a catastrophe that no side can avoid,” Hussein al-Ezzi warned in a tweet on Friday.
“[Former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur] Hadi and the [affiliated] Islah Party have to abandon such coward policies and malicious type of thinking,” he added.
The airstrikes come as the Saudi coalition braces for a looming Yemeni operation that seeks to liberate the strategic region.
