Suspected coalition airstrikes kill 15 in Yemen

Suspected coalition airstrikes kill 15 in Yemen”

No fewer than 12 prisoners were killed on Wednesday amid airstrikes by a Saudi-led alliance in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, an official in the rebel-controlled Health Ministry said.

The Trump administration will present evidence Thursday of what it says is proof that Iran has provided missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen, missiles like those the rebels have recently fired into Saudi Arabia, three defense officials told CNN Wednesday.

The alliance has stepped up attacks in Sana'a since December 4, when the Iran-back Houthis killed Yemen's former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, their erstwhile ally after he had shifted allegiances to the Saudis.

They said several buildings were damaged and dozens remain trapped under the rubble. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

The strike is part of an air campaign by the Riyadh-led group, which has waged a war against Houthi rebels since March 2015 in support of internationally recognized President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi. It couldn't be immediately reached for comment.

The stalemated war has killed more than 10,000 civilians, displaced 3 million, crippled Yemen's health system and pushed the Arab world's poorest country to the brink of starvation.

He also expressed Yemen's appreciation for the United States "positive role" towards the Yemeni people and its continued support for the legitimate government in its efforts to restore security and stability in the country.

Doctors Without Borders, known by the French acronym MSF, said Tuesday the war and the blockade contributed to a suspected diphtheria outbreak.
