ADEN: War­planes of the Saudi Ara­bia-led coali­tion hit a camp of dis­placed Ye­meni civil­ians in the south-western prov­ince of Taiz on Tues­day, killing up to 20, Houthi-owned me­dia out­lets re­ported.

“Saudi air strikes on a camp for dis­placed Ye­me­nis left some 20 dead, in­clud­ing women and chil­dren,” the Houthis said through their of­fi­cial satel­lite chan­nel Al Masirah.

Lo­cal res­i­dents said that the air strikes ap­par­ently tar­geted a dis­placed per­sons camp in the Mawza district, where the coali­tion-backed forces have been try­ing to make ground ad­vances against Houthis. Xin­hua
