Yemen: Saudi Airstrike Massacres 14 Civilians in Sana’a
Local Editor

Saudi Arabian warplanes pounded a neighborhood in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a, massacring 14 people, including women and children.

Yemen massacre

The Friday bombing hit residential buildings in the Faj Attan neighborhood of Sana'a, Yemen's al-Masirah TV reported.

It said the fatalities include two women and six children, adding that the strike targeted two residences.

The network had earlier put the death toll at five, saying search operations were underway for other potential casualties.

Riyadh's warplanes have in recent days stepped up the bombardment of Sana'a.
The fresh carnage came days after at least 60 people were martyred in Saudi airstrikes that hit a hotel north of Sana'a on Wednesday.

Witnesses said the hotel in the Bait al Edhari area of Arhab District north of the city was hit with two missiles. The collision of the projectiles with the structure shattered its roof, leaving at least two bodies dangling from the building.

Starting in March of 2015, the Saudi-led war, which has been accompanied by a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen, had so far martyred over 12,000 people in the impoverished state, left 70 percent of the country's 27 million population in desperate need of humanitarian aid, and caused the worst cholera outbreak in the world there.
