11 Civilians Killed in Airstrikes in Northern Yemen
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Yemen's Houthi-run news agency said airstrikes on Friday by the Saudi-led coalition have killed 11 civilians and wounded others in the northern city of Sa’ada.
The agency, SABA, said on Friday that the airstrikes destroyed two houses located in the district of Baqam in the city of Sa’ada –a Houthi stronghold, the Associated Press reported.
SABA said women and children are among the dead, and that subsequent flyovers of coalition planes delayed the rescue operation. Some of the wounded are in critical condition, which may lead to a higher death toll.
The strikes came a day after the United Nations demanded an international investigation in the killings of civilians in Yemen.
