Saudi royal air force kills Yemeni orphans

This video says about itself:

12 May 2015

Approximately 160 orphan children were brought from Sanaa and Taizz cities to protect them from clashes and Saudi-led air-strikes by the help of businessmen and several NGOs, in Ibb, Yemen on 11 May, 2015.

Saudi coalition airstrike hits Sana’a orphanage

September 5th, 2015 – 10:58 GMT

An airstrike launched by the Saudi-led alliance in Yemen appears to have struck an orphanage Saturday morning in Sana’a’s al-Nahda neighbourhood, killing and injuring an unknown number of people, local medical sources told dpa.

There have been contradicting reports about the casualties, and whether they include children or not. No further details were immediately available.

Separately, a residential building was bombarded by an airstrike earlier in the day in the Hadda area, also in Sana’a, killing three and injuring five civilians, local sources said.

Meanwhile, sources at the Health Ministry said a state of emergency was announced due to the rising number of casualties from mistaken strikes upon civilian sites since Friday.

“Due to the ongoing airstrikes, there is no way to make an exact estimation of the number of the dead and injured at this stage, but they are dozens,” a source at the ministry told dpa.

Airstrikes against Houthi-held military sites in Sana’a and other parts of Yemen have intensified since Friday, but that has increased the possibility of them mistakenly targeting civilian areas.

Saudi Arabia and fellow Sunni partners have mounted since March an air campaign in Yemen against Shiite Houthi rebels, who still control large parts of the country.

    SAUDI ARABIA admitted it has troops on the ground in Yemen on Saturday after 10 soldiers died in a Houthi rocket attack.

    The announcement of the deaths in the same attack on Friday that killed 45 United Arab Emirates (UAE) troops was Riyadh’s first admission of a ground invasion.

    The rockets hit a munitions dump, setting off a huge explosion that flattened several small buildings nearby.

    The UAE had already come clean after sending armoured vehicles to militias loyal to ousted president Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi — along with crews to man them.

    The Saudi-led coalition of Arab nations as far-flung as Morocco has been bombing Yemen since March in support of Hadi forces driving out Houthis, allied with former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

    The bombings have slaughtered thousands of civilians but failed to turn the tide in Mr Hadi’s favour. Mr Saleh’s allies in the military and the Houthi group still control the capital Sanaa and the west of the country. In the latest incident, 17 people were wounded when coalition jets blitzed the capital yesterday, including schoolchildren taking final exams.

    Bombs hit the Saudi and Emirati embassies as well as restaurants.

    US President Barack Obama, who has backed the air strikes, met new Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud on Friday.
