SANAA, Yemen, Oct 19 (NNN-SABA) – Six members from a family, mostly children, were killed, in an air strike, carried out by the Saudi-led coalition, in Yemen’s north-eastern province of Jawf, a local security official, said.
The air strike hit the civilian house in Rohoob area of Barat Alanan district, killing the husband, wife and their four little girls, and destroying their house, the official said by phone.
A boy, the only survivor from the family, was critically wounded from the air strike, said the official.
Rohoob is a populated agricultural area and is about 20 km south of the battlefront, where fighting has been raging, between Shiite Houthi rebels and the government forces, backed by the coalition war planes.
Residents said, the family’s house was targeted again, a few minutes later, when rescuers were trying to approach the house, to help rescue possible survivors.
Six days ago, a coalition air strike targeted a family’s house in Nehm district, on the north-eastern outskirts of the capital Sanaa, killing five civilians, mostly children and injuring three others from the same family.
