Four children killed, two injured as cluster bomb explodes in Yemen’s Ma’rib

At least four children have lost their lives and two others sustained injuries when a cluster bomb dropped earlier by the Saudi-led military aircraft in a residential area of Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib went off.

Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, citing local sources, reported that the explosion took place in the village of al-Hazm, which lies in the Harib al-Qaramish district of the province, on Tuesday.

Back on June 11, Yemen's Ministry of Human Rights, in a statement released by the official SABA news agency, warned that cluster munitions pose a serious danger to the lives of civilians, especially women and children, if they come in close contact with them.

The statement added that the alliance has used thousands of cluster bombs on residential areas, causing the death and injury of many civilians. Unexploded submunitions risk the lives of locals in the targeted areas as well.
