Jets from a Saudi-led coalition focused insurgent Houthi positions in Yemen’s Red Sea port of Hodeida early on Tuesday, port officers stated, destroying cranes and warehouses at a fundamental import hub for crucial assist provides to the nation’s north. “Indiscriminate attacks that result in death or injury to civilians amount to war crimes”, said Rovera.
A new report, titled “Nowhere safe for civilians: Airstrikes and ground attacks in Yemen”, documents eight airstrikes by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition that killed at least 141 civilians and injured 101 others, mostly women and children, in June and July.
The aid chief said he was “extremely concerned” that damage from the bombings “could have a severe impact on the entire country”, worsening the humanitarian crisis. The Saudis are leading a US-backed Arab coalition that is carrying out air strikes against Houthi fighters.
Yemeni government spokesman Rajeh Badi spoke to Anadolu Agency about the crisis in his country, saying that the national army and popular resistance committees had freed most provinces from the Houthis and are now looking to take back the cites of Sanaa, Amran and Saada.
The blast underscores instability in Yemen’s second largest city a month after fighters loyal to the country’s government in exile, backed by arms and hundreds of air strikes from rich Gulf Arab states, seized it from Iran-allied Houthi forces.
Separately, three Emirati soldiers belonging to the forces of the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia were also killed in Yemen, another security source said.
In a report titled “Yemen: Childhood Under Threat”, the UNICEF said that as many as 398 children have been killed and almost 600 others sustained injuries since March 26.
Evidence revealed a pattern of strikes against populated areas, in most of which no military target could be located nearby, it said.
Al Masirah, a TV station which is run by the Houthis, aired a video report with Houthi fighters who said they were less than two km from Najran, a city in a province of the same name near the Yemeni border.
Aden was Hadi s last refuge before he fled into exile in neighbouring Saudi Arabia in March.
The United Nations says that 21 million people – about 80% of Yemen’s population – are now in need of humanitarian assistance.
Their policy is also chaotic and inconsistent when they are supporting people on both sides of a fight and they are trying to impose their draconian will on places like Syria and of course we saw the destruction of Libya and Iraq and now we are seeing the destruction of Yemen.
But the disadvantaged assert progressed progressively uncomfortable if the Houthis grabbed off their ealier strategic homelands in September and overran the administrative centre of Sanaa.
