Young Girl Is Sole Survivor After Airstrike Topples Her Yemen Home

“Such loss of civilian life is outrageous and runs counter to the basic tenets of the law of armed conflict,” said the deputy head of I.C.R.C.’s delegation in Yemen, Carlos Morazzani, in a statement.

A Saudi Arabia-led coalition took responsibility for the airstrike a day after the attack citing a “technical mistake” in a statement released by the official Saudi Press Agency.

In the statement, the commander of the Saudi-led coalition “expressed deep sorrow over the occurrence of this unintentional and accidental incident, collateral damage to civilians and sincere sympathy with their relatives.”
