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.”

Chamoli Glacier Burst

Uttarakhand: A glacial burst in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand triggered an avalanche and massive flooding of the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers on Sunday morning, forcing the emergency evacuation of thousands from surrounding areas, and damaging houses and the nearby Rishiganga power project.

Disaster response and management teams have been deployed to conduct search-and-rescue and relief operations. Around 100 to 150 people may have been killed, Uttarakhand Chief Secretary Om Prakash told news agency ANI. Authorities fear hundreds more may still be stuck. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Assam to campaign for Assembly polls, tweeted: “India stands with Uttarakhand and the nation prays for everyone’s safety.”

Disaster management teams have been mobilized and hundreds of ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) have been rushed for rescue operations.

SN Pradhan, chief of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), said that teams from the relief force have been moved for search-and-rescue and relief operations in Uttarakhand where a glacial burst has triggered an avalanche. “The glacial burst has taken out a bridge constructed by the Border Road Organisation.
