Oman Daily Observer - - REGION -

DUBAI: Air strikes by the Saudi-led coali­tion fight­ing the An­sar Al­lah group in Ye­men killed 10 civil­ians in Hodei­dah prov­ince on Satur­day, medics and An­sar Al­lah me­dia said.

Med­i­cal sources said the civil­ians died when the air strikes hit an An­sar Al­lah check­point in the town of Ja­bal Rass while a bus was pass­ing through.

Eight mem­bers of the same fam­ily were among the vic­tims, they said.

The An­sar Al­lah move­ment’s Al Mas­sira TV said 17 died and many oth­ers were in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

A spokesman for the Saudi-led coali­tion could not im­me­di­ately be reached for com­ment.

The coali­tion in­ter­vened in Ye­men’s war in 2015 to re­store the in­ter­na­tion­al­lyrecog­nised govern­ment to power.
