Saudi Warplanes Level Yemen Presidential Palace, Killing Civilians

Saudi Warplanes Level Yemen Presidential Palace, Killing Civilians

Saudi Arabia and Arab partners including the UAE entered Yemen's civil war in 2015 to restore the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi after the Houthi movement seized large areas of the country including the capital Sana'a.

"It is a crime and all crimes committed by the enemy coalition will not be left without a similarly scaled response from our people", Jabir said as quoted by the Yemen News Agency (SABA).

Six citizens were killed and 90 others wounded including children, on Monday in two Saudi-led coalition's air attacks on the capital Sanaa. At least 30 civilians were wounded in the surrounding area, with some reports suggesting the casualties could be far higher. The Norwegian Refugee Council, an aid group operating in Yemen, said they were "appalled" by the Saudis attacking such a highly crowded business district in the middle of the day. We abhor the ongoing use of violence to intimidate civilian populations under the guise of efforts to protect them.

"We were working next door to the presidential offices and heard a plane, and then an explosion", Ahmed Dehashir, a first responder, told AFP at the scene of the attack.

Photos circulated in social media show disturbing images of panicked people, some partially covered with blood, running here and there, with streets filled with rubble, buildings shattered, and cars bent out of shape. The coalition did not respond to requests for comment.

Monday's raids came hours after Riyadh said its military intercepted two ballistic missiles launched by Houthi rebels at southern Saudi Arabia Sunday.

His tweet in Arabic carried the hashtag #Houthi_Iranian_Terrorism and data released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that said the Houthis in Yemen have launched 132 missiles and 66,298 projectiles towards Saudi Arabia.

"This hostile act. proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Huthi militia with qualitative capabilities", Malki added.

The ministry further called on the worldwide community to slam Saudi Arabia's deadly attacks and put pressure on kingdom to halt its war crimes against its impoverished neighbor.
