The Saudi military launched airstrike on a market in Hehm in the northern part of Yemen's Sana'a Province Saturday afternoon, killing 38 civilians and injuring 30 others, according to local authorities.

After the airstrike, the Saudi-led troops and armed forces loyal to Yemen President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi were converging upon to the capital Sana'a from various directions to fight against the Houthi forces in the region of Bin Ghailan mountains.

The Houthis have deployed a large contingent of troops to defend the military posts in the region. So far, the battle is still continuing.
