US-Saudi Cluster Bombs Killed, Injured Over 3000 Yemeni Civilians, Including Women, Children
US-Saudi cluster bombs killed and injured more than 3,841 civilians, including women and children, during the last few months in Yemen.
The National Program for Mine Action confirmed that its Monitoring and Documentation Department observed the various destructive effects of cluster bombs used in Yemen, which damaged and destroyed more than 809 farms and thousands of agricultural crops, in addition to 547 grazing areas.
On Twitter, the program posted that approximately 150 civilians were killed and injured by cluster bombs in al-Hudaydah Province alone. The program described the spread of cluster bombs in al-Hudaydah as a disaster, considering it a stricken province, pointing out that the program has not received any supplies to mark the dangerous areas until the time.
It stressed the necessity of intervention by humanitarian partners represented by the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation, and the rest of international organizations to reduce casualties.
Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and its other regional allies, launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015.
The almost seven years of war have killed hundreds of thousands of people and destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure. Yemeni people are facing malnutrition, hunger, and famine, which have increased risks of disease and starvation.
In light of its defeats on various frontlines and its failure to achieve any of its objectives, the US-Saudi aggression has notoriously and indiscriminately carried out numerous attacks against densely-populated centers, including markets, hospitals, farms and schools.
