Yemen war: Air strike on hotel outside Sanaa ‘leaves 30 dead’ – News

Earlier, there was a series of air strikes in the Sanhan area, south-east of the capital, which the rebel-run Saba news agency said had left at least six civilians dead and wounded 15 others.

After a deadly air strike on a house earlier this month, the UN#8217;s Humanitarian Co-ordinator in Yemen Jamie McGoldrick said all parties to the conflict were continuing to #8220;show a disregard for the protection of civilians and the principle of distinction between civilians and combatants in the conduct of hostilities#8221;.

At least 13 people were wounded in the strike and taken to hospital, Mr Tawil said.

The Khashm al-Bokra area of the Bani Hushaesh district was also hit, Saba added.

It was not clear whether the casualties were civilians or rebel fighters, but witnesses told AFP the hotel was being used to house workers from a Khat farm.

Other strikes reportedly targeted rebel positions to the south-east.
