At Least 20 Dead as Rebel Rockets Hit Market in Yemen's Marib

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Iran-backed rebels fired Katyusha rockets at a busy market in Yemen's eastern city of Marib killing at least 20 people on Friday, medics and witnesses said.

"Twenty civilians were killed and dozens wounded" in the attack, a medical official said. Witnesses said the provincial capital's market was targeted.

The attack came hours after a Saudi-led coalition air strike killed seven rebels in Marib, where Apache helicopters have also joined the fight against Huthi Shiite insurgents and their allies.

The coalition strike targeted a military vehicle used by the rebels in Marib province, while other air raids targeted rebel positions in neighbouring Shabwa, military sources said. 

The UN estimates that more than 4,500 people have been killed in the Yemeni conflict since March.

".Southern_. 3 days ago
Ansarullah are responding by hitting the military positions exclusively, although they have means to hit inside KSA sites; this is the difference between the wahhab-al-qaeda mentality and the freedom fighters... the Freedom Seekers always win no matter how much it will take."

relax, 1anonymetexasusa. this is war, and in wars, people in markets and bees die. The sa3oodis launched an insurgency and was swiftly contained. A few beekeepers and market shoppers aint what one qualifies as 'a massacre'. most are the bodies of the slain sa3oodis. of course children die as well, in wars, anywhere so no need to over-dramatize it, habboub.

15 minutes ago The Saudi civil defense said 52 people were killed when a crane crashed into Mecca's Grand Mosque.

lies lies! It was the will of Allah and Sayyedna Al Hussein that caused this as revenge against the Wahhabis.
