Saudi-led strikes on Yemen market kills 14 civilians

27 December 2017 16:49

Saudi-led air strikes killed 14 civilians in a village market near Yemen’s battleground third city Taez as a nearly three-year bombing campaign intensified, an official and medics said on Wednesday.

The Tuesday strikes also killed 11 Houthi fighters and wounded 16 civilians, a local official loyal to the Saudi-backed government told AFP.

Taez is held by forces loyal to the Saudi-backed government but much of the surrounding countryside is in the hands of the Houthis and it has been a key battleground in the country’s devastating civil war.

More than 8,750 people have been killed since the coalition’s intervention began, according to World Health Organization figures.
