Yemen News Alert

Airstrikes targeting northern al-Jawf province kill at least seven civilians on July 15; further attacks possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 7/16/2020, 12:00 AM until 7/17/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Aden). COUNTRY/REGION Al-Jawf province


Airstrikes targeting the northern province of al-Jawf killed at least seven civilians and injured several others on Wednesday, July 15. According to a Houthi spokesperson and residents of al-Jawf, this was the third air raid affecting residents in the area since June.

Additional airstrikes are possible in al-Jawf province and elsewhere in Yemen over the coming days and weeks.


Yemen is engaged in a complex and deadly conflict, ongoing since Houthi rebels entered into a civil war with the Yemeni government, supported by a Saudi-led coalition, in 2015. The Saudi-led coalition has carried out thousands of airstrikes in Yemen since its intervention began. Hundreds of Yemeni civilians have been killed in the strikes, which have hit schools, hospitals, and markets, in addition to Houthi militant positions and personnel. In total, more than 10,000 Yemenis have died in the fighting and some 3 million have been displaced.


Due to poor security conditions, many Western governments strongly advise their citizens against all travel to Yemen. Travel to the country should only be considered with proper security protocols in place. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
