The order not to attack the bus came late, General Mansur Mansur says
The Saudi coalition called an air attack on a Yemen bus at the beginning of August an "error" and expressed its condolences to the families of the victims, reported an Anadolu news agency on Sunday.
In August at least 50 people, especially children, were killed during a bus ride in the province of Saada. There were dozens of other people injured. The attack has induced indignation in the world. The Coalition advised that this incident should be investigated.
The Coalition said in Saturday's statement that those responsible for this "error" are faced with the legal consequences. At the same time, she offered help to those affected by the attacks.
They thought the buses were the bus drivers
Chief of the Joint Investigation Team of Lieutenant General Mansur Mansur at a press conference in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, said the authorities had information that the buses are the leaders of the Shiite insurgents – the Muslims.
"It was ordered to hit the bus in an area far from civilians, because there was no fighter plane in this area, the target was not hit at that moment." When the bus stopped at a place where civilians were stationed, an order was given not to attack the bus, but it came late, "explained Mansúr Mansúr.
The conflict in Yemen began in 2014 with the occupation of the capital, Sanai, by Shiite insurgents, who defeated an internationally renowned government. The military coalition, led by Saudi Arabia as an ally of the Yemeni government, has been fighting the insurgents since 2015.
The consequences of the war are mainly borne by citizens. As a result of the fighting, more than 10,000 people died, while the countryside fell on the brink of famine and the health system collapsed.
