A brief translation of the above video news report is as follows:

On the 20th of July, from the early morning till mid-day, Saudi Airstrikes bombarded residential homes, commercial shops, a school and a gas station in several areas in Qataba province, Al-Dhale governorate. Five were killed, three from the same family, a father and two children. Residents said three missiles were fired on a residential house and asserted that Saudis are appearing to be targeting civilians possessions such as homes, cars and shops, since their area does not contain any army camps, soldiers or Houthis.
