39 people killed, 51 others injured, mostly children, in Yemen bus attack

39 people killed, 51 others injured, mostly children, in Yemen bus attack

The group's head of delegation in Yemen, Johannes Bruwer, tweeted "scores killed, even more injured, most under the age of 10".

A week ago, at least 55 civilians were killed and 170 others wounded in a series of attacks on the rebel-held Red Sea port city of Hudaydah.

The Saudi-led Coalition, which has been conducting a military campaign to oust the Houthi rebels, didn't immediately respond to CNN questions. Its last air strike in Yemen was July 24 against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, she said, adding that the command seeks to help partners mitigate civilian casualties.

The bus was struck as it was driving through a market in the rebel-held province of Saada, according to the Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV.

UNICEF said in a statement that "many children were reportedly killed and injured" in the attack and that all of the children were reportedly under the age of 15.

Footage provided by the rebels' Ansarullah Media Centre showed a number of wounded children lying two to a hospital bed, while in a separate shot medics tend to casualties in a crowded room.

Saudi Arabia and Sunni Muslim allies intervened in Yemen's war in 2015 against the Houthis, who control the most populous areas of Yemen, including the capital Sanaa, and drove the internationally recognized government into exile in 2014. The province lies along the border with Saudi Arabia. "The attack today was a follow-up process to neutralise that threat".

Col. Al-Maliki stressed: "The Coalition will take all necessary measures against the terrorist, criminal acts of the Iranian-Houthi militias, such as recruiting child soldiers, pushing them into battlefields and using them as shields for their terrorist acts".

Trump administration calls for 'Space Force' to be established by 2020
According to Pence, this militarized Space Force would be part of the Defense Department, and they meant to create it by 2020. President Trump has also called on Congress to appropriate $8 billion for space security systems over the next five years.

He said the leaders and militants responsible for launching ballistic missiles and targeting civilians would be held accountable as part of the coalition's efforts to prevent terrorist elements from compromising regional and global security.

The Huthis have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against Saudi Arabia, which Riyadh usually says it intercepts.

ICRC said one of the hospitals it supports was treating the wounded.

The alleged attack left one Yemeni resident dead and 11 civilians wounded, said Maliki.

Abu Muzahem, a resident of Dahyan, was working building a house when the air strike hit the market on Thursday morning.

In another video, which appears to show the immediate aftermath of the strike, several lifeless bodies of children lay under a blown-up bus.

The war in the impoverished country has left almost 10,000 people dead and unleashed what the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Col. Al-Maliki stressed: "The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will take all deterrent measures against such barbaric, frivolous launches in conformity with the global humanitarian law, and those who support these terrorist crimes will be held accountable for their actions".
