Five others were injured in the Saudi bombing campaign which transpired in Okash, a village near the Yemeni capital city of Sanaa.
Saudi Arabia, along with other Sunni Muslim nations, launched military action in Yemen on March 25th to combat Houthis rebels.
45-year-old Jamal al-Labani was also killed in war-torn Yemen last week by a mortar strike. Al-Labani, who resided in Hayward, California, was in Yemen to retrieve his pregnant wife and 2-year-daughter and bring them back to the United States. The gas station owner is believed to be the first US citizen to be killed in the fighting.
Along with effectively blockading Yemen, the offensive has also heightened the carnage of the country’s on-going civil war.
The Saudi led air-attacks have been responsible for hundreds of deaths since the campaign began less than two weeks ago.
