Saudi-Led Bombers Kill 29 More in North Yemen

The attack struck the Sahar district of the vast territory

The Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen said on the evening of November 1that it is investigating accusations its forces targeted a popular market in northern Yemen's Houthi-held Saada province, allegedly killing at least 29 people, the state-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

Saada province, which borders Saudi Arabia, is a stronghold of the Iran-backed Houthi rebels, who have seized large parts of Yemen, including the capital Sanaa.

The Arab coalition said its "Joint Forces Command has followed with a great deal of concern what has been circulating in some media outlets regarding the allegations that the Coalition targeted "Souk Elaf" in the Sahar/Sadah province", SPA reported.

The Houthi group denies those charges and says it is launching a patriotic resistance against outside aggressors in thrall to the West.

Last month, the United Nations blacklisted the coalition for infanticide during its war on Yemen.

More than 10,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in the war with over 3 million others displaced, according to United Nations agencies.

The conflict intensified in March 2015, when a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia joined the government's fight against the rebels.

The Saudi coalition did not yet comment on whether the air strike has been carried out by them, but they enforce an air blockade on Houthi-held areas and they are the only force whose warplanes are known to operate in Yemen's north along the Saudi border.

Saudi Arabia's top diplomat had accused Tehran of smuggling arms to the Houthis and to their allies.
