Saudi-led air strike hit Yemen

An air strike in northern Yemen on Friday reportedly killed 9 people, including 6 children.

The head of the local health department in Saada Governorate told Reuters that the attack hit a civilian home. He said three were injured. He called the attack a crime by Saudi Arabian-led coalition forces.

The coalition backs the exiled government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in its war with the anti-government group that has control of the capital, Sanaa.

Footage from the scene shows the charred ruins of the house.

Coalition air raids have claimed many lives in the 2-year civil war.
On July 18th, at least 20 people, including children, who evacuated to a settlement in southern Yemen were killed in an air strike.

The United Nations says more than 2 million people have been displaced by the conflict, and more than 300,000 people are suspected of having cholera. NHK & Media agencies
