JIAT task force on Yemen releases report on recent Hudaydah strikes

Published: Updated:

The Joint Incidents Assessment Team (JIAT) on Yemen provided a detailed report on Tuesday on recent coalition airstrikes in the cities of Hudaydah and Aden.

Spokesperson for JIAT, Mansour al-Mansour, confirmed that a recent August 27 airstrike that hit an education complex in the port city of Hudaydah was only approved after coalition forces ensured no presence of civilians on the site.

“The particular site called the Shaima education complex that was surgically hit in late August had no civilian presence. The site itself was being used as a military facility by armed Houthi militias after capturing the space,” Mansour told reporters during a press conference on Tuesday.
