The Saudi-led coalition waging a war against Yemen claimed Saturday that “mistakes” had been made in an August air strike on Yemen that killed 51 people including 40 children.
An official said an investigation by the coalition had found “mistakes” were made in the strike on a crowded market in northern Yemen, adding that those responsible must be “punished”.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
However, the allied forces of the Yemeni army and popular committees established by Ansarullah revolutionaries have been heroically confronting the aggression with all means, inflicting huge losses upon Saudi-led forces.
The Saudi-led coalition – which also includes UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait – has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of the aggression.
