BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 P.M.) – At least 26 people were killed in a suspected Saudi-led coalition airstrike in the northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada on Wednesday.
The airstrike hit a hotel and neighbouring market in the town of Sahar, which is located near the border with Saudi Arabia.
Houthi rebels, who took control of Yemen’s capital Sanaa three years ago, accused the Saudi-led coalition of executing the airstrike.
The bodies of children can be seen in graphic footage.
The Saudi-led bombing campaign continues in Yemen along with US backing, with casualty figures exceeding 16,200 people since the beginning of the war in March 2015.
A reported 40,000 have been injured and more than three million people have been displaced.
The Saudi-led war is now in its third year, with rights organizations repeatedly accusing the coalition of bombing civilian areas.
