At least four civilians were killed when Saudi-led coalition warplanes fighting Houthis struck a house in the Yemeni capital Sana’a overnight, medics and residents said on Friday.
“Four members of a family, including a mother, her two daughters and a young man were killed when their house came under fire from Saudi-led warplanes after midnight. Four others, from the same family, were critically wounded from the airstrikes, the medic said.
The house is in a crowded quarter near the 50th road in Bait Baos district south of al-Nahdayn Mountain, which is the site of the presidential palace.
Resident Mohammed al-Kasemi said a large part of the targeted house was destroyed and several neighboring houses were damaged from the air raids.
“The warplanes were first hitting military posts in nearby mountains of al-Nahdayn and Attan, which locate at the southern part of Sana’a, and then one of the airstrikes hit the house of my neighbor,” al-Kasemi said.
Residents of the capital said they heard more than ten powerful airstrikes hitting sites in the southern part of Sana’a last night.
