SANA’A, YEMEN (2:00 P.M.) – Footage emerged on Sunday shows the bodies of the people killed in an airstrike at al-Mashnaq market, in Saada province.

According to the reports, the two raids were carried out by the Saudi Arabia-backed coalition. The initial strike local residents, while a second strike was reported that targeted the paramedics, who had arrived on the scene to help. The practice is termed a ‘double-tap missile strike’ and has reportedly been used at least once before by the coalition.

The Saudi-led coalition began their campaign against Houthi fighters in March 2015 in support of ousted-President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. Casualty figures have exceeded 16,200 people, including 10,000 civilians, since the beginning of the conflict, with a reported 40,000 injured and more than three million people displaced.

Earlier this year, the UN made an urgent appeal to stave off famine in the country, as over seven million people are facing the threat of starvation. Currently, over three million people, including 2.1 million children, are reported to be acutely malnourished.
