Saudi coalition bombs Houthi defence ministry in Yemen

Hunger Crisis in Yemen 2017
The Saudi-led coalition attacked the defense ministry building in the Yemeni capital last Saturday, after Saudi Arabia's air defense intercepted a ballistic missile fired from Yemen towards the King Khalid Airport in Riyadh.
The alleged air strike comes nearly a week after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile launched by the Houthis, prompting the Saudi-led coalition to call the attack an "act of war" and hold Tehran responsible for arming the Yemeni rebels, a claim repeatedly denied by the Islamic Republic.
The coalition has targeted the defence ministry in the past, leaving it heavily damaged, but the fresh strikes come amid a ratcheting up of tensions between Saudi Arabia and its rival Iran, which backs the Huthi rebels.
Initial media reports said at least three civilians were injured in the attacks. The casualty toll could rise as rescuers search through the rubble for survivors.
The United Nations, along with dozens of other aid groups, are raising alarm at the blockade imposed on Yemen by the the USA -backed, Saudi-led coalition there, saying Thursday it could lead to "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades".
This week, UN aid chief Mark Lowcock warned the Security Council (UNSC) that Yemen would face "the largest starvation the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims", unless the blockade was lifted.
The war has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and displaced more than 3 million others, according to United Nations agencies.
