Dozens of civilians were reported killed when a dairy was bombed in Yemen, as aid groups warned of a brewing humanitarian crisis from the Saudi-led coalition`s strikes on Shiite rebels.
At least 37 workers were killed and 80 wounded overnight at the dairy in the Red Sea port of Hodeida, Governor Hasan al-Hai said, without specifying whether the plant was hit by an air strike or rebel shelling.Health authorities said 35 people were killed and dozens wounded, and that rescuers had to search for survivors under the rubble of the partly destroyed factory.
Coalition spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed Assiri accused the Huthis of targeting the site, using “mortar shells and Katyusha rockets… in a bid to create unrest among the Yemeni society”.The Arab forces would continue to “evaluate targets” and “lower the chances of targeting civilians or aid workers,” he said, urging humanitarian organisations to “contact concerned parties in order to facilitate this process”.
