At least 20 Yemeni civilians killed in airstrike, UN says

At least 20 Yemeni civilians killed in airstrike, UN says

The airstrike in Yemen's embattled Mawza district, in the Taizz governorate, was reported Tuesday, according to a statement released by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

More than 8,160 people have been killed and 46,300 injured in airstrikes and fighting in Yemen since the Saudi-led coalition began its onslaught in 2015, according to United Nations figures.

The UNHCR said it was "deeply shocked and saddened at reports of the deaths and injuries of a number of internally displaced persons in an aerial attack" on the area.

The coalition, which intervened in the Yemen conflict in 2015 in support of the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, controls the airspace over Yemen and can prevent any flights made without prior permission.

Over 12,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.

The Saudi-led coalition, which intervened in the Yemen conflict two years ago in support of President Hadi against Houthi rebels, shut down Sanaa's global airport a year ago.

"This latest incident once again demonstrates the extreme dangers facing civilians in Yemen, particularly those attempting to flee violence, as they disproportionately bear the brunt of conflict", the statement said.

On Tuesday, the Riyadh regime prevented the United Nations flight from taking off from Djibouti to the Yemeni capital of Sana'a, which is now under the control of Houthi Ansarullah movement, informed sources said, according to local media outlets.

Tuesday's attack, which took place in a village in the south of the country, was the latest in a series of coalition bombings that have hit schools, hospitals, markets and private homes.

Earlier Yemen's security officials said that the people were struck while they were fleeing.

Since the Saudi-led coalition began its attacks, the conflict has killed more than 10,000 people, forced millions from their homes, damaged infrastructure and pushed the country to the brink of starvation, according to the UN.

Top United Nations officials last week slammed the warring parties in Yemen and their worldwide allies for fueling an unprecedented deadly cholera outbreak, driving millions closer to starvation and hindering humanitarian aid access.
