geneva - Air strikes on targets in Yemen by the coalition led by Saudi Arabia have killed at least 109 civilians in the last ten days. That is what the UN coordinator in the war-torn country declared on Thursday.
Jamie McGoldrick mentioned in his announcement the fight in Yemen 'useless and absurd'. The coalition, which receives support from the US and Great Britain, among others, is trying to expel the Houthi rebels who control a large part of the country with the air strikes.
Tuesday alone, 68 deaths occurred among the civilian population. By attacking a busy market in Taiz, 54 people lost their lives. Fourteen members of a family were killed by an attack on a farm near Hodeidah.
