Yemen: Saudis slaughter schoolkids

Monday 15th August 2016

THE Saudi-led Yemen invasion coalition claimed yesterday that children killed when it bombed a school were Houthi rebels.

Al-Alam News Network and Iran’s Tasnim news agency reported that some 50 children were killed on Saturday in air strikes on a school in Haydan in north-western Saada province, which borders Saudi Arabia.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said it had received 10 dead and 28 wounded at its field hospital. MSF spokeswoman Malak Shahe said that the casualties were all under 15 and the “victims of air strikes on a Koranic school.”

The coalition launched its bombing campaign against Yemen in March last year in a bid to reinstall ousted president Abbed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, and this soon escalated to a ground invasion.

It destroyed the MSF-supported hospital in Haydan in October then went on to bomb another MSF facility in south-western Taiz in December and the Shiara Hospital in the Razeh district of Saada in January.

Four people were killed and 10 injured — including three MSF members — in the January bombing.
