Saudi-led coalition launches fresh airstrikes, at least 9 killed in Shabwa – reports
The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen reportedly launched fresh airstrikes overnight on Wednesday. Residents said at least nine members of the same family, including at least five children, were killed in an airstrike that hit their home in Wadi Khair in southern Yemen’s Shabwa province, according to Reuters. Locals also said that coalition aircraft bombed a new parliament building, part of a government compound being built in Sanaa, causing damage but no casualties. Coalition aircraft have been providing air support for southern fighters and pro-government troops as part of a push to clear Houthi rebels from Shabwa. The family were reportedly killed in an apparently mistaken attack.
