Civilian casualties in Coalition airstrike targeted fruit warehouse west of Saada – residents

The aircrafts of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition launched an airstrike on a warehouse containing fruit-storage refrigerators in Saada city, the stronghold of the Houthi group in northern Yemen, local residents and witnesses said on Monday.

 

Residents said the airstrike had killed civilian people whom were in the Jayash fruit market west of Saada city, and that a huge fire broke out in the refrigerators, but no specific figure for the casualties was reported.

 

They pointed out that this is the third time that the coalition aircrafts bomb the warehouse, since the outbreak of the Arab Coalition military operations against the Houthis and Saleh's forces on March 26, 2015.

 

A source in Saada city said that aircrafts continuously bombard fruit refrigerators, which are reportedly used by the Houthis to transport and store weapons and missiles, saying they are fruit.

 

The Houthis have jeopardized all civilian places and made them vulnerable to airstrikes,” he said.

 

Two days ago, a number of civilians working in smuggling qat to Saudi Arabia were killed and wounded, following an aerial bombardment on a house in Shada district on the border with Saudi Arabia, north of Saada.
