Ye­men rocket kills 7 Saudi civil­ians

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Saudi Ara­bia suf­fered its worst civil­ian death toll in cross-bor­der shelling from Ye­men as an anti-rebel coali­tion it leads launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a deadly strike on a hos­pi­tal. A rocket fired by rebels in Ye­men killed seven civil­ians on Au­gust 16 in Na­jran city in the high­est re­ported num­ber of non-com­bat­ant ca­su­al­ties in the king­dom’s south since the Arab coali­tion in­ter­vened in Ye­men 17 months ago. “It killed four cit­i­zens and three res­i­dents,” the civil de­fence spokesper­son in Na­jran city said of the rocket strike.
