Saudi-led Mercenaries Commit New Massacre in Yemen’s Taiz


The Saudi-led mercenaries committed on Thursday night a new massacre in Yemen’s city of Taiz as they shelled a residential area, killing or injuring scores of civilians.

In details, the mercenaries launched an artillery attack on a residential area and a popular market in Softil neighborhood in Taiz, leaving over 50 locals killed or wounded.

The massacre was committed few hours before the announced ceasefire in Yemen comes into effect tonight at 23:59 (Sanaa Time).

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
