At least 31 civilians were killed in Yemen today by an air strike by a Saudi-led military coalition, the UN said on the day after the crash of that coalition in that country.
Shiite rebels have confirmed that they shot down a Saudi fighter jet on Friday night.
“According to the first information on the spot, 31 civilians were killed and 12 were injured in an air strike in Al Jawf province,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.
Yemen has been fighting in Yemen since 2015 with the support of the Saudi Arabian-led Arab military coalition and Iranian-backed Shiite rebels.
Several tens of thousands were killed in the conflict, while 3.3 million were refugees. The UN regularly reminds that the people of Yemen need humanitarian assistance.
