Renewed Saudi-led bombardment kills, wounds dozens of Yemeni civilians

22 June 2015

Saudi-led airstrikes killed at least 15 and wounded scores more this weekend during attacks against targets in Marib, Saada, Lahj, Jawf and Aden, according to Yemeni media.

War planes under the Saudi-led Arab coalition also struck the Sanaa International Airport in Yemen’s capital over the weekend, and at least three civilians were killed Sunday by shelling of Aden’s Al Naqib hospital.

The latest fatalities add to the more than 3,000 civilians killed since the beginning of Operation Decisive Storm in late March. The real civilian death toll may be as high as 6-8,000 according to differing estimates.

At least 6 million Yemenis currently face starvation or near-starvation conditions, and at least 9 million lack reliable access to water, according to UN estimates released last week.

Saudi forces have continued to deploy illegal cluster munitions against targets in Yemen, according to evidence published by Human Rights Watch last week.
