Saudi-led airstrikes kill 17 in Yemen’s center and south


Yemeni tribal and rebel officials said Saudi-led coalition airstrikes killed at least 17 people today, including children, in the southwestern city of Taiz and the northern rebel stronghold of Saada.

They said the Taiz airstrike hit a house in the Dimnat Khadir district, an area that has seen heavy fighting between Saudi-backed government forces and Iran-allied Houthi rebels.

At least 15 people were killed. Aliaa Al-Shabby, the rebels’ Minister for Human Rights said another airstrike hit a workshop in Saada, killing at least two people and wounding eight others, including several schoolgirls.

She urged an independent commission to be formed to investigate.
