14th Dec 2014, 10 killed including 5 children when Saudi led airstrikes target civilian houses in Haifan, Taiz, Yemen

In the night of 14th December 2015, after evening prayers, the Saudi led coalition airstrikes targeted several residential homes in Haifan directorate, in Taiz province, Yemen. An entire family of 10 were killed, 5 of whom were children, and another 2 people were injured.

A neighbor said, “The Saudis bombarded the house of Mohamed Saad Makreet. They were very modest people with no connection to politics”. Another commented “The international silence is shameful and it’s a disgrace to ignore such gruesome crimes."

WARNING: the media below is graphic and distressing. It is placed here as evidence as war crimes to call for an independent investigation and to call on the international community to respect the Arms Treaty by stopping the supply of weapons to Saudi Arabic as they are clearly targeting civilians.
