The coalition ground bombing targets Yemeni childern in Hodeidah




At least two children were wounded on Thursday after an artillery shelling by Saudi-led coalition , backed by the US, paid fighters on residential neighborhoods of Tuhayta district of Hodeidah province, a local official told YemenExtra.

The paid fighters shelled al-Falah village in Tuhayta district, wounding Obaid Mohammed Obaid Balkam, eight years, and Musab Mohammed Obaid Balkam, seven years.

The two wounded children were taken to Zabid Hospital.

In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 60,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and  prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
