15th Apr 2015, up to 45 killed many injured when residential area in Hawth, Amran, Yemen hit by Saudi led coalition airstrikes

On 15th April 2015, the Saudi led coalition airstrikes bombed a residential area in Hawth in Amran governorate in Yemen, killing up to 45 people including women and children, and injuring up to 70 more.

The airstrikes hit two bridges, shops, a petrol station, cars, a gas locomotive, a truck carrying animal feed, shops, markets and homes. One of the strikes on a bridge killed IDPs as they were fleeing the area of Saada to take refuge in Amran, following the official announcement by the Saudi led coalition that Saada was a target and that civilians should leave the area.

The following report by the Legal Center for Rights and Development documents the crimes, and states that this was a poor residential area with no military camp located there.

The following videos recorded some of the damage in that area at that time. WARNING they include some graphic footage that you may find disturbing.
