15/10/2016 (Al Ahram Online – UAE): The coalition battling Yemeni rebels said Saturday that one of its warplanes had “wrongly targeted” a funeral in the capital Sanaa after receiving false information from a party within the Yemeni army The coalition added that the directing operations center of the Yemeni army approved the strike without the coalition’s authorization and announced disciplinary proceedings. “Because of non-compliance with coalition rules of engagement and procedures, and the issuing of incorrect information, a coalition aircraft wrongly targeted the location, resulting in civilian deaths and injuries,” an inquiry team found.“Appropriate action… must be taken against those who caused the incident, and… compensation must be offered to the families of the victims.” The coalition’s statement said also that “other parties” exploited the incident and “raised its toll.”..
