SANAA, Aug. 10 (YPA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on Friday condemned the killing of Yemeni children in Saada province, northern Yemen by the Saudi-led coalition air strikes, calling for an international probe into coalition’s crimes in Yemen.

“Moscow is deeply concerned about what is going on in Yemen from the senseless war, which continues to kill the innocent civilians, the statement read.
