مقتل 16 مدني في غارة خاطئة لطيران التحالف في الوازعية

Sixteen civilians were killed “by mistake” by an airstrike launched by an aircraft of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition west of Taiz city in southwestern Yemen, a government source said Wednesday.


The source told Almasdaronline that the airstrike targeted civilians while they were on a pickup vehicle in the Shabou area of Mozza district, which is under the control of the Houthis-Saleh militants.


The source said the civilians were returning from the market in the area, before being targeted by mistake by the airstrike, and that all those who were on the vehicle were killed, including two women and three children.


On the one hand, local activists in the area published pictures of the targeted vehicle, and around it were the bodies of the victims and the parts that were scattered by the bombing.
