Arab coalition’s attack on Yemen kills 12 civilians

Tehran, Arab coalition's jet fighters late Wednesday targeted twice Omran province in northeast of Sana'a, killing 12 civilians and wounding five others.

According to Al-Massirah News Network, the first attack on the tent of the Bedouin in al-Amshieh killed seven civilians including three children and two women and injured five others while the second attack which took place hours later claimed five lives.

Last week, Saudi-led coalition's fighters bombed a hospital and fish market in Al-Hudaideh where 52 civilians were killed and over 100 were wounded.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for the past three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
