Dec 8: 23 civilians killed in today’s airstrikes

Yemeni officials say Saudi-led coalition airstrikes have killed at least 23 civilians, including women and children, in the country’s north.

Abdel Elah al-Ezi, head of the health directorate in the northern city of Saada, said Friday’s airstrikes were carried out in different areas of the city. Saada is a stronghold of the Iran-backed Shiite rebels, known as Houthis.

The rebel-run Sabaa news agency reported the strikes, as did tribal officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals.
