Almotamar.net - The United Nations has called for holding accountable those responsible for an air strike targeted the Mazraq camp for displaced people and killed at least 40 people north Yemen.
The Mazraq camp for displaced people near Haradh district in Hajjah province was struck on Monday, humanitarian workers said. Some 200 people were wounded, dozens of them seriously, the International Organization for Migration said.
"We have not identified who is responsible for this attack," U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq said on Tuesday said. "Whichever forces are hitting them are in violation of the law, there should be accountability for that and ultimately all such attacks have to cease."
"Whoever is responsible, this is a violation of international humanitarian and human rights law. This camp, as well as the hospitals that have also been hit, are under protected status and should not be hit," Haq added.
Worth mentioning that the number of displaced families living in the Mazraq camp are estimated at 1,100 families, who had fled from a series of conflicts that took place in the province of Saada during the years 2004-2010.
