Yemeni Man Saw Family Burn In Saudi Airstrike

More than 600 people have been killed in Yemen in the past three weeks as a result of airstrikes and ground fighting, over half of them civilians including 74 children, according to the United Nations.

Our cameraman, Abd Rabu Al Hushaishi, travelled to the village of Yarim, 150km south of Yemen's capital Sana'a, to see Mohamed Al Ammari.

Mohamed, 32, lost seven members of his family when an airstrike hit a fuel truck next to his house.

In just a few minutes his daughter, two brothers and their children died. The pain of watching them burn to death was too much for him to describe.

Now what was once his home is filled with charred belongings and the blood stains of his relatives on the walls and carpet.

"The Saudi plane hit it (the fuel truck) with a missile, which led to these homes being burned as well as the people who were sleeping in their beds. It was 2.30am," Mohamed told Sky News.

"They were targeting areas with weapons, but there were no weapons," he insists.

Mohamed says he can't stop thinking about his family: "It's a miserable life without them," he says.

"There's no point continuing our days, you wake up in the morning and you hope that God makes this day your last. "

The next morning Mohamed headed to Sana'a to visit his uncle, one of the only relatives that survived the strikes. Our cameraman went with him but by the time Mohamed got there, it was too late - his uncle had died of his wounds just an hour before.

With thousands wounded since the Saudi-led campaign against Houthi fighters began, hospitals around the country are struggling.

Vital medicine is running low and with limited aid arriving because of the naval and air blockade, the head of medical supplies at this hospital says they can no longer treat all the patients.

According to the head of medical supplies at Sana'a airport, Mohamed Mansour, "there is no more stock of emergency medicine and anaesthetic medicine".

It is not just medicine that is in short supply, the price of fuel has quadrupled since the airstrikes and fighting began. Despite that and the risk of being outside, people queue for hours to fill up their cars and generators.

Some 112,000 people have been forced to flee their homes. according to the UN. Power and water supplies are now running dangerously low.

Even before the latest crisis almost half of Yemen's population, more than 10 million people, were going hungry every day.

The poorest Arab country is under attack from the richest. Whatever the politics, it is clear it is ordinary people like Mohamed bearing the brunt of this war.

As Mohamed put it: "Inside me there's a sea of pain that will not end as long as I live, tragedies and wounds, things I will suffer from my entire life."
