The Yemeni rebels, known as Houthis, accused the Saudi-led coalition of launching retaliatory airstrikes after they shot down a warplane for coalition over the province of Jawf.

Strikes killed more than 30 civilians in a mountainous northern Yemeni province Saturday, the UN humanitarian chief for the country said, calling the attack “shocking.”

The Yemeni rebels, known as Houthis, accused the Saudi-led coalition of launching retaliatory airstrikes after they shot down a warplane for coalition over the province of Jawf.

Saudi Arabia’s state-run news agency quoted Col. Turki al-Maliki, a spokesman for the coalition, as saying it was investigating “possible collateral damage” from a rescue operation in the area after the downing of the Tornado warplane late Friday.

Al-Maliki was quoted as saying the plane was providing air support for the Yemeni government forces fighting the Houthis.

He said the two-pilot crew of the Tornado managed to eject safely before the crash, claiming that the Houthis opened fire on them. He said the Houthis were responsible for the pilots’ “life and safety,” according to the Saudi Arabia official news agency.

He did not say whether there were causalities or provide further details.

The U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, Lise Grande, said: “these terrible strikes” in al-Maslub district killed at least 31 civilians and wounded 12 others, according to preliminary field reports.

“So many people are being killed in Yemen – it’s a tragedy and it’s unjustified. Five years into this conflict and belligerents are still failing to uphold this responsibility,” she said. “It’s shocking.”

She said many wounded were taken to hospitals in Jawf and Yemen’s capital, Sanaa.

Youssef al-Hadri, the spokesman of the Houthi-run health ministry, said the airstrikes killed at least 32 people including women and children.

The Iranian-backed rebels released graphic images showing destroyed buildings and vehicles as well as bodies described the attack’s victims.

They also released footage allegedly showing the downing of the Saudi aircraft and its wreckage.

The humanitarian group — Save the Children — condemned the airstrike, saying it showed that the conflict in Yemen was “not slowing down.”

Thousands of people protesting over Kyrgyzstan election result

Kyrgyzstan Protest

Thousands of people are protesting in Kyrgyzstan over allegations of vote-buying and intimidation in Sunday’s parliamentary election. The capital Bishkek saw the largest protest while rallies were also held elsewhere in the ex-Soviet republic.

Only four parties out of 16 passed the 7% threshold for entry into parliament, three of which have close ties to President Sooronbai Jeenbekov. International monitors have said the claims of vote-buying are “credible”.

None of the established opposition parties got a seat in parliament. Now all of these parties have declared that they will not recognize the results of the election. Opposition candidates are calling on the Central Electoral Commission in Kyrgyzstan to cancel the results of the vote. One candidate, Ryskeldi Mombekov, told a crowd of more than 5,000 protesters: “The president promised to oversee honest elections. He didn’t keep his word.”

Mr. Mombekov’s party, Ata Meken, had been confident of entering parliament, but in the end, it was one of the eight parties that missed the threshold. Protesters are also calling on President Jeenbekov to resign. Thomas Boserup, head of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s election observation mission, said in a briefing that although the vote had been “generally well organized”, allegations of vote-buying were a “serious concern”.

The two leading parties, which got a quarter of the vote each, were Birimdik and Mekenim Kyrgyzstan. President Jeenbekov’s younger brother, Asylbek Jeenbekov, is in Birimdik.

Mekenim Kyrgyzstan, meanwhile, is seen as being closely connected to the powerful Matraimov family. The family’s figurehead, Rayimbek Matraimov, is believed to have helped finance Mr. Jeenbekov’s successful presidential campaign in 2017.
