Today, Dutch NOS radio reports that the United Nations says that the royal air force of Saudi Arabia has once again killed at least thirty civilians in Yemen; including women and children. At least 12 people were injured.

The NOS report says (translated):

Aid organization Save the Children condemns the air raids and calls for an independent investigation. The organization blames Western countries that sell weapons to the Saudi coalition for contributing to the bloodshed in Yemen.

Since the start of the war in Yemen in 2015, an estimated 100,000 people have died in the country. The years of fighting have also caused one of the greatest humanitarian crises in modern history. Millions of people are starving and in recent years have been affected by outbreaks of diseases such as cholera.
