UN Denounces Deadly Airstrike by Saudi-Led Military Coalition in Yemen’s Sa’ada

TEHRAN (FNA)- The United Nations condemned an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen’s Northern province of Sa’ada that killed dozens of people, in the latest act of aggression by the Riyadh regime against the impoverished nation.

Warplanes of the Saudi-led military coalition pounded a detention center in Sa’ada in the early hours of Friday, killing at least 70 people and injuring some 140 others, with reports saying that the death toll is expected to rise since many of the wounded were seriously hurt, presstv reported.

On Friday evening, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that the UN chief had condemned “the airstrikes launched earlier today by the Saudi-led coalition against a detention center in Sa’ada city”.

Dujarric went on to say that further airstrikes were carried out by the invading coalition elsewhere in Yemen on Friday, adding that the strikes also led to deaths and injuries among civilians, including children.

He said an airstrike targeted telecommunications facilities in tightly-besieged Hudaydah that significantly disrupted vital internet services across much of the impoverished country.
