(Iraq Now News)-

The Arab Coalition‘s Joint Incident Assessment Team (JIAT) in Yemen conducted investigations into the shelling of buildings in Saada, citing allegations of its forces targeting civilians in the ongoing conflict in Yemen.The official spokesman of the JIAT, Mansour al-Mansour said on Sunday during a press conference in the Saudi capital Riyadh, that the coalition had received intelligence information indicating the presence of Houthi military commanders in a house located in a remote isolated area.The official presented pictures of the targeted house, which international organizations claimed is adjacent to civilian inhabited houses.According to the pictures, the targeted house is in an isolated remote area.The JIAT concluded that the targeting of the building was in accordance with the rules of humanitarian law.Al-Mansour added that the team also investigated the incident involving the “house in Lahij governorate”, which was targeted due to the presence of a gathering of armed members of the Houthi militias, and thus it is considered a legitimate military target, he said.
