Saudi - led air force bombing has “mistakenly” led to the deaths of at least 30 Yemeni pro - government fighters loyal to ousted president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, local officials said, adding that the coalition reportedly “hit the wrong target.” The strike on the military camp in Yemen’s Waziya, located between the southeastern provinces of Taiz and Lahj, left at least another 40 wounded. One official from the Hadi administration said that "the coalition raid hit the wrong target.” Medical sources and witnesses on the ground also confirmed to AFP and AP that the strike on the camp resulted in numerous casualties, placing the number of fatalities at between 20 and 30 soldiers. However, a commander of Hadi-loyal forces in the area, Abedrabbo al-Mehwali, told AFP that only "eight fighters were killed and 25 wounded." "They thought the Houthis were still there," another pro-government security official said. The strike targeted a mountainous region close to the city of Taiz where fighting has been ongoing between local combatants and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh (in power 1990-2012) who has openly allied himself with Houthi rebels.
