Saudi Airstrikes Hit North Yemen Market, Killing 11 Civilians

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said it had thwarted an attack on a Saudi oil tanker over the weekend by Houthi fighters near the Red Sea port of Hodeidah.

The missile targeted the military airport of Apache helicopters at the Saudi Special Forces Camp in Najran, Houthis said in a statement without providing further details.

The report said the panel saw "no evidence" that either side took measures "to mitigate the devastating impact" of attacks on civilians.

The Saudi-led coalition has been trying since the start of the war in March 2015 to capture Hodeidah, which receives 80 percent of Yemen's imports, and has in recent weeks launched a ground campaign and intensified air strikes.

Brigadier-General Tareq Mohammed Saleh - who led a brigade of an elite Yemeni army unit before his uncle was forced to step down in 2012 - had been expected to help lead Saleh's supporters in a fresh fight against the Iran-aligned Houthis, who control most of northern Yemen, including the capital Sanaa.


"We also extend our hands to our brothers, particularly the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to work to end the war and to restore stability and security to Yemen", he added.

Within 48 hours, the capital of Sanaa witnessed the killing of two Houthi militia leaders by the unidentified armed groups.

More than 8,750 people have died in the war and the country is facing what the United Nations has described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

"These (missile launch) are aimed at threatening the security of not only Saudi Arabia but also the region and the world as firing of ballistic missiles targeting densely populated cities and villages is contrary to global humanitarian law", he said in Riyadh.
