23rd Oct 2015, two children killed when Saudi led airstrike hits home in Hadran village in Yemen

On Friday 23rd October, the Saudi led coalition airstrikes targeted a home in the village of  Hadran in the directorate of Bani Hashish, which lies West of Sanaa, killing two children and injuring their mother.

According to the grandfather of the family and owner of the house, Mr Ali Ahmed Khalid (the first speaker in the video below), the dead included his granddaughter Abeer Ali Khalid, and his grandson Murad Ali Khalid. The children's mother, the wife of Mr Ali Ahmed Khalid's son, is in a critical condition in hospital. Neighbouring houses were also damaged with other members from the same family also injured.

In the following video, one of the men says that the Saudis’ thirst for blood destroys every means of life. While the loved ones are dead, the surviving wounded become destitute, with nowhere to live except among the ruins of their home.

WARNING: The following video and photos are graphic and disturbing. They are placed here as evidence to call upon the UN for an independent inquiry and to call upon Western governments to honour the Arms Treaty and stop the supply of weapons to Saudi Arabia.
