Yemenis flee Saudi attacks
A Saudi-led coalition’s offensive against Shia rebels along Yemen’s west coast has displaced thousands of civilians, says Amnesty International.
It said Yemeni escapees described “terrifying mortar attacks, air strikes, landmines and other dangers” as coalition forces attempt to retake the rebelheld areas along the country’s west coast.
Amnesty said the coalition’s offensive has sent Yemenis fleeing to government-held areas including Aden, warning that “the worst could be yet to come”.
Citing the UN, the report said fighting along Yemen’s west coast has displaced 100,000 people in recent months.
