Saudis commit new massacre against Yemeni people

Tehran, Sept 19, IRNA - Jet fighters of the Saudi-led military coalition targeted Yemeni fishing boats in the Red Sea off the western coast of the country, killing 18 fishermen, Almasirah news network reported Tuesday.

The slain fishermen were from a village in al-Khokha city in the Al-Hudaydah province

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Some 15,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world's worst humanitarian disaster.
