UN condemns brutality of Yemen conflict after airstrikes on civilians
    2017-August-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A TOP United Nations official in Yemen said reported airstrikes in which at least 12 civilians were killed, including children, were an example of the “disregard” for civilians’ safety shown by all the combatants in Yemen’s civil war.

The civilians were killed and 10 others wounded in Saada province after attacks on a house and a private vehicle, the U.N.’s Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen Jamie McGoldrick said Saturday, citing reports from fellow aid groups.

Reuters reported Friday that three women and six children from the same family were killed in an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition on their home in the area, according to a local health official.

Yemen has been torn apart by a civil war in which the exiled government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, backed by the Saudi-led coalition, is trying to push back gains made by the Iran-aligned Houthi group, which controls most of the north, including the capital Sanaa.

The new incidents were an example of the “brutality” of the conflict, McGoldrick said in the statement in which he expressed deep concern.
