SANAA, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- A total of 15 food factory workers including six women were killed and eight others wounded in a series of Saudi-led airstrikes in the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Tuesday, a Xinhua correspondent at the scene reported.


The airstrikes destroyed the two food factory in Nahda quarter near the information ministry in downtown Sanaa.


Blood bath and bodies' parts were every where. Families of the victims crowded to search for their beloved relatives.


The relatives, women, children and men are crying. It's a brutal picture that cannot be imaged.


Sanaa, which is under control of Shiite Houthi group and it's ally forces of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, has witnessed almost five months of calm with no airstrikes recorded.


Today, Sanaa turned into mess after dozens of airstrikes since dawn, in which several military targets including the presidential palace, the 1st military division base in south part of the capital were hit.


The main mountain bridge road linking Sanaa and southern provinces was destroyed, cutting off travel and food supplies between them.


The airport was shut down, and roads leading to it were closed, security officers and airport official told Xinhua.


Families were seen on vehicles with their belongings leaving Sanaa.


Residents in downtown the capital could hear sounds of artillery shelling from the northeast part of Sanaa, where Saudi-backed Yemeni government army are advancing in military attempts to recapture the rebel-held capital.


The situation here turned suddenly to a completely war zone. Residents expected things to get more worst. Armed Houthi fighters deployed everywhere in the streets and tall buildings.


Saudi Arabia intervened in Yemen's conflict in March 2015, nearly six months after Houthi group and Saleh forces stormed the capital Sanaa and drove out the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to exile.

The deadly dramatic military escalation came four days after UN-brokered peace talks in Kuwait between Yemeni parties broke down.


"Solution would not come through tanks, but via peace talks," said UN envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.

A closer look


Taking the helm after the country just went through the 10-year-long catastrophe that was the Cultural Revolution (1966-76), in the eyes of many people over the age of 50 Deng is undoubtedly a great savior. Until today, many of those who lived through that era and whose fates were thus completely altered view Deng through a distant and admiring lens Cheap Nike Vapormax Flyknit , without having much of a chance to truly know the man himself.


Unlike their elders, the majority of the youth born during the 1990s never had the chance to experience the changes brought about by this leader's vision. For them, their knowledge of Deng is limited to a dictionary-like understanding of the term "reform and opening-up."


Be it him Cheap Nike Vapormax , bending over to pick up a screwdriver from under the table for his handicapped son, or rubbing his son's back with a towel, Deng Xiaoping at History's Crossroads fully depicts the 72-year-old Deng's role as a father and husband.


"Different from many other historical political figures Nike Vapormax Flyknit Sale , Deng absolutely did not put on airs with his family," said Ma Shaohua, the actor who plays Deng in the TV drama.

As Deng was confined for most of the time during the Cultural Revolution, the family would turn on the water faucet whenever the family was discussing something in order to avoid being overheard. This habit is also mentioned in the book Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China by the US author Ezra Feivel Vogel.
