70 Civilians Were Killed in a Strike by Saudi-led Coalition



20 civilians were killed in the al-Jarrahi district of Hudaydah when three cars were hit by the Saudi-led coalition airstrike. The coalition is supported by United States, and the United Kingdom.

70 other civilians were killed in a bombing by Saudi-led coalition in a crowded market and a rural farm. Saudi Arabia operated a warfare and slaughtered so many innocent people in the bloody week, with the financial and the military support of United States, and the United Kingdom.

“These incidents prove the complete disregard for human life that all parties, including the Saudi-led Coalition, continue to show,” remarked Jamie McGoldrick, Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen.

Since Saudi-led coalition began to work, the casualties number proceeds 10,000 people. The coalition began in March 2015, despite the oppositions of ex-President Abd Rabbuh Mansur who tried to limit the advance of Houthi Forces.

Unfortunately, reports indicate that more than half of Yemen’s casualties are innocent men, women and children. The U.S.-Saudi forces’ determination in targeting civilian areas had negative irreparable effects, such as food, energy and medicine crisis. The outbreak of cholera made the situation even worse.

US and UK’s military supports and help to Saudi Arabia, spread terrorism and warfare in Middle East, while they claim they are avid of peace. They caused fear and tension by creating militant groups in region.
