Death toll of Saudi bombing on civilians in Hajjah at least 23

Yemeni media has documented the rubble of houses and cost in human lives in the Kusher district of Hajjah province, after the Saudi-led coalition bombed civilian housing on Sunday.

The death toll of the Saudi carnage has risen to 23, most of them women and children. The Ministry of Health expects the numbers to increase in coming days.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Health said in a statement to the Al-Masirah TV channel that the death toll of aggression’s attacks rose to 23 people, including 14 children and 9 women, noting that there were critical cases of the wounded.

“There is no statement on the part of the United Nations and human rights organizations towards the crime of Kusher,” the spokesman added, referring to Jared Kushner, son-in-law and senior advisor of US president Donald Trump, who is responsible for the cooperation between the US and the Saudi kingdom.

The spokesperson called on humanitarian organisations to carry out their humanitarian duty of preparing, equipping and furnishing rural hospitals in order to reduce civilian casualties.

He expressed his regret over the failure of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to play its proper role towards civilian victims of criminal airstrikes.
