Saudi-UAE Bombardment Deaths in Yemen Reaches 50: Media Reports

At least 50 people were killed, including children, while 77 were injured on Thursday due to the bombing of the Air Force led by the Saudi Arabia-UAE coalition in Sa’ada province in north-western Yemen. This is reported by the Associated Press agency with reference to the controlled channel Husit television channel Al Massira.

Earlier it was reported that 43 people were injured in the raid by the Saudi-UAE coalition’s air force in Saad. According to the SABA agency, the majority of the dead are children.

Meanwhile, an official spokesman for the Saudi-UAE led coalition announced that the alliance fighter struck at the Husit facility, from where a ballistic missile was launched on towards the Saudi city of Jizan. 

According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, which supports the hospital in Saad, as a result of the Saudi-UAE bombardment 48 people, 30 of whom were children, were injured.

In Yemen, since August 2014, the battle between government forces and the Husit rebels (supporters of the Ansar Allah movement) continues. According to the Yemen Center for Human Rights and Development, since the spring of 2015, more than 10,000 civilians have been killed in the country, including almost 2,400 children and nearly 2,000 women. During the same period, 18.5 thousand Yemenis were injured.

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, Saudi-UAE fighter jets bombed a bus in Yemen killing at least 39 students (toll now gone up to 50) The bus was caught in the bombardment by Saudi jets in the northwestern province of Sa’ada.

This is not the first time that the attacks by the Saudi-UAE coalition have claimed innocent lives in Yemen. Yemen has been war-torn since 2015 and tens of thousands of Yemenis have been affected by this merciless war. Yemen, as stated by the UN, is already on the verge of a massive famine. The Hudaydah Port which receives the bulk of the humanitarian aid for Yemen has been under constant attack by fighter jets from Saudi.
