Saudis Bar UN Aid Flight to Yemen Over Journalists on Board

Yemeni officials said several women and children were among the casualties.

More than two years of war between the Saudi-led coalition and the armed Iran-aligned Houthi group has claimed more than 10,000 lives in Yemen.

The deaths also highlight the security challenges that aid organizations face in Yemen, the United Nations agency said, adding that it was "deeply shocked and saddened" by the incident.

The statement said the civilians had fled fighting in the nearby Mokha district, on the Red Sea coast.

"[Children] are facing threats from all sides, they've got the threat of airstrikes from above, which are continuous - just in the past few weeks we've seen [bombs] landing on marketplaces where civilians have been killed", Caroline Anning, senior conflict and humanitarian advocacy adviser at Save the Children, said to the Guardian.

A coalition of Arab countries assembled by Saudi Arabia launched an air campaign against the rebels in March 2015 to try to restore the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power.

The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, said in a statement that it was "deeply shocked and saddened at reports of the deaths and injuries of a number of internally displaced persons in an aerial attack" on the area.

Save the Children has warned that if the United Nations fails to include Saudi-led coalition on this year's list, it will set a unsafe precedent for other conflicts around the world.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than two years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far. Their goal is to drive rebels out of Yemen's coastline.

Another suspected coalition raid in Taez province in May was reported to have killed more than 20 civilians.

"A peaceful political solution to resolve the conflict in Yemen is urgently needed to end civilian suffering", UNHCR stated.

The Houthi rebels seized control of large parts of the country including Sanaa in late 2014 and early 2015.

Saudi Arabia is using British-manufactured weapons in the offensive, sparking failed legal challenge by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade in the High Court.
