Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states launched air strikes against Houthi rebels which have taken over large parts of Yemen, attacking the Sana'a military Airport and Jiraf area, a Houthi stronghold. The strikes were 'in support of the people of Yemen and their legitimate government,' Saudi Arabia's Washington ambassador Adel al-Jubeir said. The military operation by a 'coalition of over 10 countries' was in response to an appeal from embattled Yemeni President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi, al-Jubeir said.

LiputanIslam.com—Perserikatan Bangsa-Bangsa (PBB) menyatakan jumlah korban yang gugur atas serangan kekerasan yang berlangsung di Yaman, dalam kurun waktu 2 minggu telah mencapai 519 orang, termasuk wanita dan anak-anak.

Seperti diketahui, Arab Saudi dan sekutunya telah menggempur Yaman dari udara, dengan dalih untuk memerangi kelompok Syiah Houti yang mereka sebut sebagai ‘pemberontak’ atau ‘ektremis’.

Sebagaimana dilaporkan Press TV, 3 April 2015, Wakil Sekretaris Jenderal PBB urusan kemanusiaan, Valerie Amos menyatakan, selain korban jiwa, diperkirakan sekitar 1.700 orang juga mengalami luka-luka. Amos menambahkan, puluhan ribu penduduk Yaman memilih meninggalkan Yaman, dan menyeberang menuju Djibouti dan Somalia.

“Mereka yang terlibat dalam pertempuran harus memastikan bahwa rumah sakit, sekolah, kamp-kamp untuk pengungsi, para pengungsi, warga sipil, infrastruktur, terutama di daerah-daerah dihuni oleh penduduk, tidak ditargetkan atau digunakan untuk tujuan militer,” kata Amos.

Seperti yang terlihat dalam foto-foto di atas, kondisi Yaman hari ini sangat memprihatinkan. Bangunan dan rumah-rumah penduduk hancur, darah berceceran di mana-mana dan rakyat yang tidak berdosa menjadi korban. (ba)
