Airstrike kills 12 civilians in Yemen
Twelve civilians killed, six injured in Saudi air strikes in Hajja
12 market-goers killed by Saudi-led airstrike in Yemen – local residents
Twelve civilians were killed after they were hit by a Saudi-led airstrike while riding in a pick-up truck in northwest Yemen, according to residents cited by Reuters. The passengers were reportedly heading to a local market in the Hiran area of northwest Hajja province on Wednesday when they were struck. The area is controlled by the Houthi movement. A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition declined to respond to Reuters’ request for comment. In the past, the coalition has maintained that it does not target civilians, despite numerous accusations and reports to the contrary.
The new deaths come less than two months after 135 civilians were killed by an alleged Saudi-led airstrike at a wedding in the southwestern village of Al-Wahijah, in an attack that the Saudi-led coalition denied.Yemen War 2016 – Popular Committees in Heavy Urban Clashes in Battle of Taiz
