Twenty killed in air strike in southwest Yemen: residents

Twenty killed in air strike in southwest Yemen: residents

The attack hit a auto transporting 20 passengers south of Taiz province, locals told Reuters.

The attack on Friday hit a auto transporting 20 passengers in the south of Taiz province, locals told Reuters news agency. Six bodies were identified, with numerous rest charred beyond recognition, according to residents.

Al Arabiya reported yesterday that Houthi leader, Khalid Silan, also known as Abu Hussein, has been killed during an Arab Coalition air raid in al-Tifa.

"Such an act of aggression corroborates Iran's involvement in supporting the Houthi militias with advanced weaponry in defiance of UN Resolutions 2216 and 2231 and in threatening the national security of Saudi Arabia as well as Arab and worldwide stability", he said, affirming that the launch of ballistic missiles against populated areas breach the global Humanitarian Law.

Saudi Arabia has since March 2015 led a coalition of Arab states fighting to roll back the Huthi rebels in Yemen and restore its neighbour's internationally-recognised government to power.

The rebels control the capital, Sanaa.

Coalition air strikes have repeatedly struck civilian targets while trying to target Houthi forces during the three-year war.

Separately, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said a staff member was killed on Saturday in a shooting in Yemen.

The war has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and displaced over 3 million others, according to humanitarian agencies.
