FRANCE 24 in Yemen: Children pay ultimate price for conflict

Our reporters have been to the Yemeni city of Saada, which is controlled by Houthi rebels. It has seen some of the worst battles since fighting broke out between the Iran-backed Houthis and the Saudi-led coalition in 2014. For civilians, particularly children, life has become hell on earth. Some people may find the images in this report disturbing. Just back from Yemen, FRANCE 24's reporter Cyril Payen speaks to us about the difficulties he and his team faced on the ground.


We also take a look at a shift in strategy from Israel, which recently openly admitted targeting Iranian positions in Syria. Israel says it has conducted hundreds of strikes over the years. The change comes in the aftermath of Donald Trump's shock announcement that US forces would be pulling out of Syria.

And we continue with the fourth episode of the animation series "Flavours of Iraq", a colourful glance into the life and memories of Franco-Iraqi journalist Feurat Alani. This week, we bring you "War in the Playground".
