SANAA, Yemen- Nine members of a Yemeni family were killed, in a Saudi-led coalition air strike on Amran city, in the north of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, Monday, local sources said.
The victims, mostly women and children, were killed, when their family house was destroyed in the strike, which also severely damaged nearby houses, a medic and a local official at the scene said.
A medic official said that, 20 other residents from the adjacent houses, including women and children, were also wounded in the air strike.
Four other air strikes hit a nearby military camp, a police station, a post office and a telecommunication centre.
The attack was the latest, in a series of air strikes that resulted in the deaths of civilians in Yemen.
Two weeks ago, a Saudi-led coalition air strike killed a family of eight, in the country's northern province of Saada, according to local officials and residents.
Saudi Arabia leads an Arab military coalition, that has intervened in the Yemen war since 2015, to support the government of exiled President, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
On Jun 13, the coalition forces began an all-out offensive, to liberate the Red Sea strategic port city of Hodeidah from the Houthis. Aid agencies have warned that, the assault on Hodeidah could cost the lives of 600,000 civilians.
