Air strike kills 17 in Yemen, exiled president rejects peace
Reuters, October 29, 2016
SANAA, Yemen --
At least 17 civilians were killed in Yemen's southwestern province of
Taiz on Saturday by a Saudi-led coalition air strike that struck a
house, local officials and residents said.
The raid targeted a house in the al-Salw district, the sources said,
an area of Taiz where Houthi rebels and government forces backed by the
coalition are fighting for control. Taiz is Yemen's third largest city
with an estimated pre-war population of 300,000.
The Saudi-led coalition has been fighting Houthi rebels and forces
loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, who hold much of the north
of Yemen including the capital Sanaa, since March 2015 to try to restore
the internationally recognized President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to
The exiled Hadi on Saturday rejected a U.N. peace proposal to end the
turmoil saying the deal would only be a path to more war and
Speaking after meeting U.N. envoy Ismail Ould Cheickh Ahmed in
Riyadh, Hadi said the agreement would "reward the rebels and penalize
the Yemeni people and legitimacy," according to the
government-controlled Saba news agency.
According to a copy of the proposal seen by Reuters, the plan would
sideline Hadi and set up a government of less divisive figures.
The deal would involve removing Hadi's powerful vice president, Ali
Mushin al-Ahmar Ahmar from power and Hadi agreeing to become little more
than a figurehead after a Houthi withdrawal from the capital Sanaa.
Hadi fled the armed advance of the Iranian-allied Houthi movement in
March 2015 and has been a guest of neighboring Saudi Arabia ever since.
A U.N. Security Council resolution a month later recognized him as
the legitimate head of state and called on the Houthis to disarm and
quit Yemen's main cities. But the Houthis and their allies in Yemen's
army have said he will never return.
The conflict in Yemen has killed at least 10,000 people and unleashed
one of the world's worst humanitarian crises.
