Yemen: 13 Reportedly Killed by Airstrikes in Hodeidah Province

HeadlineAug 15, 2018

In Yemen, the health ministry says U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrikes in Hodeidah province have killed 13 civilians and injured two dozen more. The reported strikes come as outrage continues to grow over the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led bombing of a children’s school bus in Yemen’s northern city of Saada, which killed 51 people, including 40 children. This is UNICEF’s Meritxell Relano.

Meritxell Relano: ”UNICEF has been responding with medical materials and with support to the injured children. But the important thing is that these attacks don’t repeat again. We don’t need to come back again and treat the children. The objective is the children are not attacked, they are not killed, they are not injured. This is the most important. We need to put a stop to this war.”
