SANAA, Yemen, At least 16 people, including six children, were killed, when a Saudi-led coalition war planes hit a family home in central Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, medics and residents said.

Medics and rescuers said, five women were among the dead. They said, 22 people were wounded from the air strike.

Residents said, the targeted house was full of family members, and several nearby homes were severally damaged, in Faj Attan area in the central part of the capital, Sanaa.

This is the latest air strike targeting civilians in the war-torn Arab country.

On Wednesday, the coalition fighter jets killed more than 35 people in a hotel, north of the capital Sanaa, according to officials and witnesses.

Earlier this month, nine civilians from two families were killed, in air strikes by Saudi-led coalition in Yemen's northern province of Saada, according to local residents and officials.

Last month, the coalition fighter jets hit a camp of internally displaced persons (IDP's) in Mawza district, in the southern province of Taiz, killing a total of 20 people, mostly women and children.

The United Nations refugee agency strongly condemned the July 18 aerial attacks on the IDP's camp and said that it is "deeply shocked and saddened."

It said the victims were reported to have been displaced to Mawza from nearby Al Mokha district, which is also experiencing intensified hostilities.
