Saudi-Led Airstrikes Kill 14 Civilians in Sanaa

Reuters

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki told AFP that those killed in Wednesday's air strike were "armed militants", adding that the strike was aimed at "a high-value target".

According to the Liz, on Wednesday, an air raid struck the Istirahat Al-Shahab hotel, located in Bayt Al-Athri, where United Nations officials confirmed that 33 civilians were killed and 25 injured.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) also strongly denounced that airstrike and said it was "deeply shocked and saddened" by the carnage.

Referring to the events, the expert said Saudi news outlets had claimed an infighting between the Houthis and the GPC, presuming that Saudi-backed militants could destroy their coalition in Sana'a but the Thursday rally proved them wrong.

The delay appeared to be linked to numerous reviews that found the AI appeared to struggle with natural language voice commands. The AI also responds to contextual, cross-application commands such as, "Send the photo just taken to Mom".

The attack was the latest in a wave of deadly raids on residential areas of Yemen blamed on a Saudi-led Arab military coalition, drawing strong worldwide condemnation.

There has been no comment from the Saudis on this most recent strike, however, but with mounting civilian deaths, including a substantial number of children, being killed in airstrikes, they may feel uncomfortable trying to defend the campaign publicly.

Several children were reportedly among the dead in Friday's early morning attack on the Faj Attan neighbourhood of Sanaa which reduced an apartment block to rubble. The alliance's rules of engagement were based on the regulations of worldwide humanitarian law, it said, adding it was committed to protecting civilians.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than two years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

The United Nations human rights office called on Friday for an independent investigation into airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition.

Medics and a rebel security source confirmed at least nine people had died in the strike.

"We remind all parties to the conflict, including the Coalition, of their duty to ensure full respect for global humanitarian law", spokeswoman Liz Throssell said.
