Civilians Killed in Fresh Saudi Attack on Yemen's Taiz

Civilians Killed in Fresh Saudi Attack on Yemen's Taiz Civilians Killed in Fresh Saudi Attack on Yemen's Taiz

Graphic video footage has emerged confirming the earlier testimony of local residents that Saudi-led coalition airstrikes in Yemen had killed twenty people on Friday.

The attack on Friday hit a vehicle transporting 20 passengers in the south of Taiz province, locals told Reuters news agency. Six bodies were identified, with numerous rest charred beyond recognition, according to residents.

A Saudi-led coalition spokesman said that the coalition would investigate the reported incident, adding that they took the report "very seriously".

Since then, Yemen has remained in a stalemate with the Houthi group controlling large swathes of territory from Sana'a to Saada governorate.

Yemen has been since March 25, 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, which also includes UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. The coalition says it does not target civilians.

Almost 10,000 people have since been killed in the conflict, in what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Separately, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said a staff member was killed on Saturday in a shooting in Yemen.

Martin Griffiths, the new United Nations envoy for Yemen held his first talks with senior Trump administration officials in Washington last week, where his appointment to the post has raised hopes of a political process to end the country's war.
