Two children injured by cluster munition explosion in Hodeidah

At least two children were injured as a result of the explosion of a cluster bomb left over from the Saudi-led coalition forces in Hodeidah province, western Yemen.

The Executive Center for Mine Action stated on Sunday, that two children were injured as a result of the explosion of a cluster bomb left over from US-Saudi aggression in Al-Durayhimi district, Hodeidah province.

According to the center, about 15 citizens were killed and injured, including seven children due to explosion of cluster bombs left over from US-Saudi Emirati aggression in Hodeidah, Sana’a and Saada.

It stressed the need to provide detectors so that the center can save the lives of civilians in Yemen.

As a result of the indiscriminate and excessive use of cluster bombs by the coalition forces during the past years, the impact of these bombs continues to lead to casualties among civilians, especially children.
