Alwaght- Saudi-led coalition, in its latest atrocity in Yemen, killed nearly 30 people, including 22 children and four women, on Thursday.
Mohammed Abdul-Salam, spokesman for the Ansarullah movement, said on Twitter the Saudi-led coalition attack took place in the ad-Durayhimi district, 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) from the port city of Hudaydah in the country’s west.
Four families were evacuating their homes in a vehicle when the airstrikes hit, according to Saba news agency.
The massacre came almost two weeks after a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on school bus in the Yemen’s north that killed at least 51 people, including 40 children and injured 79 others, including 56 children.
American news network CNN confirmed the bomb used by the Saudi-led coalition to strike a school bus was sold as part of a US State Department-sanctioned arms deal with Saudi Arabia.
CNN cited munitions experts as saying that the weapon massacred Yemeni children dead on August 9 in Saada province was a 500-pound (227 kilogram) laser-guided MK 82 bomb made by Lockheed Martin, one of the top US defense contractors.
HRW slams Saudi, UAE attacks
Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch has slammed the Saudi-UAE military engaged in aggression on Yemen and accused the two countries of reaching "dubious conclusions" in its post-air strike analysis and failing to properly investigate alleged war crimes.
In a damning 90-page report released on Friday, the rights group accused the alliance's investigative body, the Joint Incidents Assessment Team (JIAT), of "absolving coalition members of legal responsibility in the vast majority of attacks".
"Many of the apparent laws-of-war violations committed by coalition forces show evidence of war crimes," said HRW in the report.
Saudi Arabia and some of its allies launched a brutal war, code-named Operation Decisive Storm, against Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall Yemen’s former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and crush the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which is a significant aid to the Yemeni army in defending the country against the invading forces. The movement has also been running state affairs in the absence of an effective administration during the past three years.
The imposed war initially consisted of a bombing campaign but was later coupled with a naval blockade and the deployment of ground forces into Yemen.
Some 15,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.
The Saudi-led aggression has also taken a heavy toll on the country's infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories. The United Nations has already said that a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in dire need of food, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger.
Several Western countries, the United States and Britain in particular, are also accused of being complicit in the ongoing aggression as they supply the Riyadh regime with advanced weapons and military equipment as well as logistical and intelligence assistance.
