Saudi Arabia targeted the Houthi territory in north Yemen today, killing civilians including women and children, reported Al Jazeera.
The air strikes targeted a village in Hiran, located in the Hajjah region in the north of the country. Thirty people died in the strikes, Hussain Al-Bukhaithi, a Yemeni-based journalist told Al Jazeera.
Air strikes began at midnight and continued for five hours, according to locals on the ground.
The first strike targeted Sheikh Hamdi’s family home, a Houthi loyalist, killing him and his family. The strikes prevented rescue workers and the relatives of those injured or killed from accessing the site to rescue those affected, Al-Bukhaithi said.
Ten paramedics were killed in the strikes.
None of the claims can be verified.
Yemen has been subject to air strikes since March 2015, when a Saudi-led coalition entered the civil war to stop the Houthis from capturing territory from internationally recognised President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
