Yemen war: Children dead after Sanaa airstrike

Posted August 27, 2017

"In the week from August 17 to August 24, 58 civilians have been killed, including 42 by the Saudi-led coalition", said Liz Throssell, the spokeswoman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), in a press briefing in Geneva on Friday.

As well as military targets, air strikes have hit hospitals and ports, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis.

Friday's raid came two days after at least 35 people died in a series of strikes on Sanaa and a nearby hotel that rebels have also blamed on the coalition.

In the Yemeni capital Sanaa, in a residential area on the outskirts, two buildings were reduced to rubble.

Hundreds of civilians killed since Raqqa offensive began, Amnesty says
Air Force commander in the Middle East, said in an interview with news agency, adding that sometimes the phone calls are "tense". The taskforce includes several nations supporting the SDF , including the United States.

Witnesses said the strike had not targeted the apartment block where people were killed, but instead hit an empty building next to it that caused the flats to collapse.

Amnesty International says the coalition "rained down bombs on civilians while they slept".

People at the scene told Reuters the jets were believed to be from a Saudi-led Arab coalition, which has waged a two-year campaign against the Iran-aligned Houthi movement for control of the country. Children were also seen among demonstrators as a number of them held signs reading, "Stop killing children!"

The news comes two days after a Saudi bombing killed dozens of people, majority civilians, in a Sanaa hotel reportedly located next to a rebel checkpoint.
