Several sources on news site, Twitter, and Facebook claimed that the Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeted the Moqshalesa Bridge, which connects between Sana'a and Al-Hudaydah governorates. According to one of the sources on the news sites claim, the targeting resulted in the casualties of a number of travelers, mostly women and children. Several photos were shared showing the destruction on a number of bridges. Yemeni archive was unable to verify and confirm these photos, as the sources published different pictures of more than one bridge that was targeted on the same day.
