BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 A.M.) – A residential area in the Yemeni capital Sanaa was reduced to ruins, Friday, following an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition, which left at least four children, including two children dead.
Footage from the airstrike site captured the aftermath of the bombing, which left the buildings collapsed and roads covered in wreckage and debris.
Earlier this year, the UN made an urgent appeal to stave off famine in the country, as over seven million people are facing the threat of starvation. Currently, over three million people, including 2.1 million children, are acutely malnourished.
Casualty figures since the beginning of the conflict in Yemen in March 2015, with airstrikes led by Saudi Arabia, have exceeded 10,000 people in Yemen since March 2015, with a reported 40,000 injured and more than three million people displaced.
