Dozens massacres committed in Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemen
At least 14 civilians have been killed when the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, warplanes conducted an airstrike on a crowded market in Yemen’s northern province of Sa’ada.
According to YemenExra correspondent, the coaliion targeted Al-Thabet market, on Monday, 36 people were killed and injured, including children in an initial toll in Sa’ada province.
As part of the daily targeting of these bordering districts, a number of citizens were injured and the homes and farms of citizens were damaged yesterday by the coaliion shelling on Dhweib district of Haidan in Saada.
United Nations ,in May, revealed the deaths of about 900 civilians in the war on Yemen since the first quarter of this year 2019.
In an article entitled “Yemen’s War: Children Paying the Price”, the Voice of America website in the same month revealed the most important goals achieved by the coalition raids in Yemen.
More than 15 children were killed and 100 other people injured that day, but violence is just one of the many reasons the war in Yemen has crippled the country’s ability to educate children, and often even keep them alive. As Yemen’s conflict goes into a fifth year, aid organizations are calling it a “war on children.”
In April, ministry of Public Health and Population held the UN and its Special Envoy responsible for all the coalition massacres against the Yemeni People including the latest, which the war targeted a school with an airstrike.
The ministry called on the international community to take serious action to bring the leaders of the coaliion to the international courts, criticizing the lack of responsible actions to stop what is happening to the Yemeni People. In its fifth year .The coalition is constantly killing civilians through its direct airstrikes and shelling. The siege is main cause of the increase in the spread of epidemics, which have killed thousands of Yemenis.
In March, spokesman for the Health Ministry, Yousef Al-Hadhri, said that the total number of victims killed in Hajjah province in the coalition’s massacre rose to 23 and the outcome is still likely to rise. “Ambulance crews are still working to retrieve the remains of the victims from underneath the rubble of 13 destroyed houses,” Al-Hadhri said in a statement.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
