Saudi-led air strikes & # 39; kill at least 11 civilians & # 39; in Yemen & # 39; s Sanaa | Yemen news

Air strikes by a Saudi-led coalition in a residential area in the Hughi capital of Sanaa in Yemen have killed at least 11 civilians, including children, according to local officials.

Youssef al-Hadrii, a spokesperson for the rebel-controlled health ministry, was quoted by DPA news agency as said that the attack on Sunday injured more than 39 people.

He said most victims were students killed in bombing houses and a school.

With reference to local medical sources, the Associated Press news agency placed the number of deaths at 13, including seven children. More than 100 were injured, it added.

"Everyone was hysterical, some were crying and screaming," said Fatehiya Kahlani, director of Al Raei school. "The situation was terrible because the school population is 2,100.

"Some girl students were killed and others were injured and are in a hospital due to the rocket attack. The school building has also been destroyed."

"We suddenly heard a fighter jet while we were in school. We then heard the first strike, we stayed calm, then the second strike and then the third, the strongest of them all," said Ali Ahmed, an injured student.

"The building was damaged and we were injured by broken glass. When the fourth air strike took place, we panicked and ran home."

The Saudi-led alliance with the Houthis, led by Saudi United Arab Emirates, said his jets had set up a military camp in the Sanaa suburb of Sawan, according to DPA. But the coalition did not provide victim figures.

The state-run news agency in Aden, in line with President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's coalition-supported government, said that a warehouse used by the Houthis to store weapons was the target.

The last conflict in Yemen started with the acquisition of Sanaa by 2014 Houthi rebels, who overthrew the Hadi government.

Air attacks by a coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have beaten schools, hospitals and wedding parties and killed thousands of Yemeni civilians. The Houthis & # 39; s have fired long-range missiles Saudi Arabia and targeted ships in the Red Sea.

The fighting in the poorest country in the Arab world has killed thousands of civilians, millions of people have left food and medical gaps and have driven the country to the brink of famine.

UN Humanitarian Head, Mark Lowcock, said that about 80 percent of the population of Yemen – 24 million people – need humanitarian assistance, including nearly 10 million people "just a step away from famine" and nearly 240,000 "with catastrophic levels of hunger ".
