A SAUDI air strike has killed 12 civilians in Yemen’s Marib province, according to medical officials.
They said four children and four women were among those killed on Saturday. The attack hit a car in the Harib al-Qaramesh area, along the only route used by civilians to escape the fighting but also near rebel military installations.
Several civilians were also wounded in the raid.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity under regulations but their accounts were corroborated by local tribesmen.
Since March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition has waged a blistering air campaign against the Shi’ite Houthis and their allies, after they won control of most of the country and drove out then president Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, whom Riyadh wishes to restore.
The bombing campaign has killed more than 10,000 civilians, according to UN officials, as well as sparking a famine and cholera outbreak.
