On the evening of 5 June at around 9pm during Ramadan, Abdulrahman Mohammed Jahia (33) and his family heard a loud explosion outside their house in Sana'a, Yemen. Their neighbouring building was hit by airstrikes. “We never expected something like this to happen so close to our home. My youngest son still runs to a corner and hides whenever he hears planes hovering above us. We had to take them away from this area and our house for a while to allow them time to process,” Abdulrahman said.
