Dozens of protesters have staged separate demonstrations across Bahrain to express their resentment over the ongoing Saudi military campaign against Yemen, which has killed nearly a thousand people and wounded many more, Press TV reported.

On Friday, demonstrators took to the streets in the villages of al-Daih, located six kilometers (3.7 miles) west of the capital, Manama, as well as Karzakan, Sanad, Barbar, Muqaba and Karrana, to voice solidarity with Yemeni people, and condemn the Saudi onslaught against them.

The protesters chanted “Saudis, get out of Yemen!” and stressed that they will continue their support for the people of Yemen. The demonstrators also shouted slogans against Bahrain’s ruling Al Khalifa family.

The development comes on the same day that Saudi warplanes carried out fresh aerial assaults on Yemen, bombarding several places across the crisis-stricken Arab country.

Saudi fighter jets pounded two districts in Yemen’s southern port city of Aden. There were no immediate reports of casualties in the attacks.

Dozens of people were killed after a Saudi air raid targeted a wedding ceremony in Yemen’s southwestern province of Ad Dali’.

Two Saudi airstrikes also hit al-Houta district in the southern Yemeni province of Lahij.

Meanwhile, Riyadh’s forces shelled the Razih district in the northwestern province of Sa’ada on Friday.

Saudi Arabia launched its air campaign against Yemen on March 26 - without a United Nations mandate - in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

On April 21, Riyadh announced the end of the first phase of its unlawful military operation, but sporadic airstrikes have continued with Saudi bombers targeting different areas across the country.

The Saudi aggression against Yemen has claimed the lives of more than 100 children over the past month, according to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
