WASHINGTON, The United States urged

Saudi-led forces to conduct a transparent probe after eight people including

five children were killed in a strike near a hospital in Yemen.

Charity Save the Children reported the death toll at the hospital it

supports in Saada province, saying a missile hit a gas station near the

entrance on Tuesday morning.

US State Department spokesman Robert Palladino called the incident tragic and awful.

We are going to continue to call on all parties to take appropriate

measures to mitigate the risk for civilian casualties and damage to civilian

infrastructure, Palladino told reporters.

He pointed to a probe that has been promised by the Saudi-led coalition �

the only player in the conflict that has warplanes, which come largely from

the United States.

The United States urges a transparent investigation by the Joint Incidents

Assessment Team into these alleged incidents as well as swift implementation of the resulting recommendations, Palladino said.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates enjoy US logistical and

diplomatic backing as they battle Yemen's Iranian-linked Huthi rebels.

A series of attacks on civilians has triggered alarm in Washington, with

lawmakers moving to end US support to the Saudis.

President Donald Trump's administration has threatened to veto the move,

saying that Iran is the larger concern.
