BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 P.M.) – United Nations and UNICEF spokespersons commented on the Saudi-led coalition airstrike in Yemen that claimed the lives of 44, at least 29 of whom were children, while speaking at their Geneva headquarters on Friday.

“This the single worst attack since 2015. The bus attack. No such number of children has been involved in one incident before,” UNICEF spokesperson Christophe Boulierac said.

Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Liz Throssell said that the UN ‘deplores Thursday’s attack in Yemen, where a coalition airstrike hit a bus carrying children in Dahyan market in Saada, reportedly killing 40 people and injuring another 60.’

Earlier UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for an independent investigation into the Saudi-led coalition attack on the school bus.

According to the Houthi-held Health Ministry at least 43 people were killed, including 29 children, with a further 61 injured.

These crypto joos do only what they can do best. Killing goyim children from distance. Disgusting.

It’s clear that when Houthis shoot Scud copies with dubious accuracy against civilian targets from distance, they do better 😉
Saudis and Houthis have the same boss :

Please purchase a big thick carpet and brush this underneath and this will get forgotten like so many thousands of war related killing around the world.

Very soon another big attack will happen and every one will forget this Yemen School Bus attack just like Beslan school massacre & Peshawar school attack where 100s of kids got killed.

The killers are just grown up kids killing growing up kids all in the name of most merciful.
