SANAA: At least 39 civilians have been killed in more than 24 hours of Saudi-led air strikes against Shia rebels in Yemen, health ministry officials said on Friday. Twelve of the victims were killed when a raid against a military base north of Sanaa hit surrounding residential areas, officials from the rebel-controlled ministry told AFP. Witnesses said warplanes targeted Al Samaa base, which is used by army units believed to take orders from their former commander Ahmed Ali Saleh the son of ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh, an ally of  Huthi rebels.

p r sharma | 6 years ago | Reply No comment when a collateral damage is done by Saudi war planes. When rebel in Syria takes action it is people's choice but when rebels in Yemen oust the king it is unacceptable just because the rebels are shia though Yemeni citizen . Hypocrisy has no bound . Vested interest takes the pilot seat. Principle, Humanity, tolerance are good words in books only. Who says might is not right it remains always and will continue to be so.
