8 Members of Yemeni Family Killed in Saudi-Led Drone Attack

The Riyadh-led coalition carried out the drone attack on Wednesday on a residential house in Midi, west of Yemen, killing eight members of the same family.

Two other women were also injured in the attack, the Arabic-language al-Masirah TV reported.

In another attack by the Saudi-backed mercenaries against a village in Damet region in Zale province, two Yemenis were killed and another was injured.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than three-and-a-half years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
