Twelve Yemenis were killed and six others were wounded, by Saudi-led air strikes in the north-west province of Hajja on Wednesday, residents and officials said.

Residents said, passengers travelling in a pickup truck were targeted, as they headed towards a local public market, to shop in the district of Hayran.

The victims were hit in the Akawah area, saying, "it was the latest in a series of barbaric air strikes targeting civilians by the U.S.-backed Saudi air aggression."

Local residents "are demanding loudly from the international community, to move to stop such violations against the Yemeni people."

Saudi Arabia, which led a mostly Arab countries' military coalition, intervened in the Yemeni conflict in Mar, 2015, via an air campaign.

The campaign is attempting to restore to power, expelled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, whom Houthi rebels exiled to the Saudi capital of Riyadh, in 2014.

Thousands of air strikes failed to restore Hadi or defeat the Houthis, yet killed over 10,000 Yemenis, mostly children and women, and displaced over three million others.
