Yemen: Air Raid Kills At Least 13 Civilians, Incl. 7 Children in Sana’a

HeadlineApr 08, 2019

In Yemen, local authorities reported at least 13 civilians, including at least seven children, were killed after an air raid on a warehouse in the capital Sana’a on Sunday. Another 100 were reportedly injured. Houthi rebels say the Saudi-led airstrikes targeted a weapons storage site that was located close to homes and a school.

The U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war in Yemen has killed thousands of civilians and sparked the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with 10 million people facing famine. Last week, congressmembers in the House joined their colleagues in the Senate to back a War Powers Resolution calling for an end to U.S. support for the war. President Trump is expected to veto the resolution.
