Thirty Yemeni civilians, mostly women and children, were killed and wounded in a Saudi airstrike targeting residential neighborhoods at today’s dawn, southern the capital Sana’a.
The Saudi American air raid left at least 30 civilians between dead and wounded, where 14 are killed and the other 16 sustained various injuries, local source reported to YemenExtra.
Among the victims are children, some of them did not even pass seven or five years old, as well as a groom and a bride who just married two weeks ago, source added.
The number of the victims is likely to rise due to severe injuries suffered by the wounded, noting that the rescue operations and the search for corpses under the rubble is still ongoing until this moment.
