Three women and six children from the same family were killed in an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition on their home in northern Yemen on Friday, a local health official said, the latest in a series of attacks since 2015. The head of the local health department, Dr Abdel-Ilah al-Azzi, said the attack at dawn on the family home of Taha al-Dharafi in Mahda district on the south-western outskirts of Saada city, also injured three other people, Reuters reported. “We are recording all the crimes of the enemy and we will not forget them,” Azzi said. “All the criminals will be put on trial soon, God willing,” he added. A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition did not respond to a request for a comment. At least 25 Yemenis were killed in June when Saudi-led coalition aircraft struck a market in the Saada Province.
