TEHRAN,Young Journalists Club (YJC) - In an aerial raid, the fighters of Saudi-led coalition mistakenly bombarded the aggregation point of their own mercenaries in Nihm city of northern Yemen.
The raid left 20 pro-Riyadh mercenaries killed including three Saudi top commanders.
Since March 2015, the Saudi regime, together with a coalition of its allies, has been heavily bombarding Yemen as part of a brutal campaign against its impoverished southern neighbor. It has been attempting unsuccessfully to reinstall Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
The Saudi campaign has killed at least 13,600 people since its onset. Furthermore, much of the country’s infrastructure, including hospitals, schools, and factories, has been reduced to rubble in the Saudi war.
A blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition on Yemen has also caused widespread famine in the already-impoverished country.
