Journalists syndicate denounces bombing of a journalist house in Sanaa, Minister  "Askar " condemns the incident and demands investigation


The Yemeni journalists syndicate denounced the aerial bombardment of the House of journalist Abdullah Ali Sabri, a member of the syndicate in the area of "al-Raqqas street " In Sanaa, by coalition warplanes, killing his son, wounding him and his family, and killing and injuring a number of civilians.

The Union stressed that the targeting of journalists and civilians is contrary to the laws of war, which oblige civilians to be immunized and protected in conflicts. The Arab coalition took all responsibility and demanded that it be investigated so that the perpetrators would receive their deterrent punishment.

For his part, the Yemeni government's internationally recognized minister for Human Rights, Mohamed Askar, condemned in the strongest terms the killing of six civilians, including four children from one family, in a raid on a house in Sanaa.

In tweets posted on his Twitter page, Minister Askar called on the National Commission to investigate allegations of human rights violations, "to do its part and bring the perpetrators to justice, in order to achieve the principle of redress for the victims.

"Any military operations must abide by the principles of war, which begin with the principle of distinction, through the principle of proportionality and military necessity, and the endangering of civilians by placing military installations, in the midst of residential neighborhoods, as happened in Sanaa a month ago, is a crime and a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law," he added.

Earlier on Thursday, a paramedic and an eyewitness to Al-Masdar online said that four children from one family were killed in an airstrike launched by Arab coalition fighters this morning on a residential building in Sana'a City, and the breadwinner of the family, his wife and other civilians were injured in various wounds.
