There are reports that as many as 20 civilians have died in a Saudi coalition airstrike in Sa’ada, Yemen.
After the first strike, civilian reactions were naturally to help rescue those caught up in the chaos. A second airstrike hit the same location a short time later, killing scores of innocent people. This second strike was caught on video.
Doctors Without Borders reported that a paramedic driver was also among those dead.

Doctors Without Borders reported earlier in the week that the Saudi-led aggression has targeted over 100 hospitals across Yemen.

The barbarity of the airstrikes are unsurprising when one considers that hours earlier Al-Masdar News reported a Saudi general saying on national television that they were prepared to ruin Yemen’s capital Sana’a to complete rubble.
