7th May 2015, Saudi led coalition airstrike destroys home in Saada City killing one civilian and wounding two

From Human Rights Watch report regarding strike on residential home in Saada City, killing one civilian and wounding two others:

Human Rights Watch also investigated the ruins of a residential house near the old market. An Ansar Allah official told Human Rights Watch that warplanes had struck the house on May 7, killing one civilian and wounding two others, but Human Rights Watch was not able to corroborate the number of casualties. Satellite imagery shows that the house was destroyed in the period between May 4 and 10.
