|Title:||Airstrikes in Northern Yemen June - July 2015|
In July 2015, Amnesty International’s Senior Crisis Response Researcher - Donatella Rovera, travelled to Yemen to investigate the affect on civilians that air strikes are having.
Since the end of March 2015 , Saudi Arabia-led coalition has been bombing Yemen on a daily basis, ostensibly targeting the Huthi armed group (and their allies from the regime of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh) who have taken over the capital and much of the country since September 2014.
Saudi-led coalition forces have been targeting the northern border of Yemen, because it happens to be in Sa’da - the stronghold of the armed group known as the Huthi’s.
The group consolidated its hold over the capital Sa’na earlier this year (2015).

The Amnesty International footage was filmed by Rasha Mohamed.
