Yemeni children stage protest against Saudi coalition

Yemeni children stage protest against Saudi coalition”

Thousands of mourners Monday buried dozens of children killed in an Arab coalition airstrike on a bus in northern Yemen, one of the deadliest attacks on civilians in the 3-year-old war.

In a statement on Monday, Lt. Cmdr.

The meeting also discussed the GCC-backed political transition that was disrupted when the Houthi rebels seized the capital, Sanaa, in September 2014 and overthrew the internationally recognised government led by President Abdrabu Mansur Hadi.

On Thursday, Saudi warplanes attacked the vehicle at a market in the town of Dahyan in Sa'ada, leaving at least 51 civilians people dead, including 40 children, and almost 80 others injured.

In the latest development, Al-Maliki said the Houthi militia targeted the Al-Thawra hospital, one of the main health care facilities in the city of Taiz, and the fish market in Hodeidah with mortars.

Rebarich stressed that Mattis never said the general would be conducting an investigation, but urging the Saudis "to expeditiously and thoroughly investigate this tragic incident".

Saudi officials continue to contend that the strike was a "legitimate military action".

According to reports, the Saudi-led coalition has said it would investigate the attack on the buses.

Critics have rejected the USA military's assertion that it is not involved in the Yemeni conflict because it does not, for example, launch strikes on Houthi targets.

"U.S. military support to our partners mitigates noncombatant casualties, by improving coalition processes and procedures, especially regarding compliance with the law of armed conflict and best practices for reducing the risk of civilian casualties".

On Saturday evening, the Saudi authorities announced that another Houthi missile - fired into the southwestern Jazan region - had likewise been intercepted. "We don't have a lot of people on the ground".

A military coalition led by Saudi Arabia has been carrying out devastating airstrikes since 2015 against Houthi positions - causing thousands of civilian deaths in the process, according to war monitors - in an attempt to restore the internationally-recognized government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, which is now based in the southern port city of Aden.

The representative of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Yemen, Meritxell Relaño, reported that her organization is now trying to confirm the death toll in the event, while the Red Cross estimates that at least 29 children died.

It also said 79 others were wounded, including 56 children.

Yemen's rebel-run Al Masirah TV aired footage of injured children weeping as blood streamed down their faces.
