The Saudi regime continues to perpetrated horrific war crimes in Yemen. It is backed by western imperialist regimes as well as mercenaries yet it has failed to achieve any of its objectives. Instead, it has faced defeat on multiple fronts.
The Saudis are getting a dose of their own medicine as the Yemeni resistance movement Ansarallah launches drone attacks on Aramco and Riyadh.
Hiding under the protective umbrella of imperialism and Zionism, the Bani Saud are moving full speed ahead with the crimes both at home and abroad.
There is some good news out of war-torn Yemen, at last. The resistance has scored major victories against the foreign invaders led by the Bani Saud.
Despite a much-touted ceasefire in Hodaydah that was negotiated in Sweden, the Saudi war-mongers and aggressor and their co-conspirators are doing everything to undermine it.
Some people including some Yemenis have been so brainwashed about the situation in Yemen, especially relating to Iran’s role in it, that they refuse to see what the Saudi criminals are doing to their society. For them, only Iran is to blame!
It is unconscionable to see Yemeni children dying before our eyes. If they have not been afflicted by disease, hunger — the modern form of man-imposed disease — is taking a heavy toll.
Every 10 minutes a child dies in Yemen because of the total siege imposed by the US-UK-Saudi and their allies. There is also widespread famine, entirely man-made, due to the war imposed on the country.
While Khashoggi’s brutal murder has spotlighted the dark conduct of Saudi rulers, it has also forced Western media outlets to look a little closer at the horrors perpetrated in Yemen.
The October 30 call by US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis for ceasefire in the war on Yemen “within 30 days” may be the first positive sign out of the war-torn country in nearly four years.
The Bani Saud are guilty of horrendous crimes in Yemen where a famine is raging and more than one million children are suffering from cholera. Saudi rulers should be tried for war crimes.
The suffering of the Yemeni people is heartbreaking. It is, however, not enough to expose the Saudi criminals and their backers. We must make life uncomfortable for the Saudis whenever they show up in the West.
The Saudi-led war on Yemen has caused massive civilian casualties and led to the greatest humanitarian disaster in history. The Bani Saud are guilty of war crimes.
Ansarullah would not have accomplished what they have so far if the Yemenis believed this was an Iranian takeover or that it’s a Sunni vs Shia conflict.
The vicious war the Najdi Bedouins launched in March 2015 has taken a heavy toll of Yemen’s civilian populations. There are increasing calls even from within the UN for war crimes charges against those responsible in the medieval kingdom.
The people of Yemen are suffering grievously. This is the direct result of Saudi crimes.
With failure staring them in the face in their ill-conceived military campaign against Yemen, the Saudi regime has intensified attacks on civilians. Their latest outrage was committed on October 8 when more than 140 civilians were killed and some 525 injured in a missile strike on a gathering at a funeral ceremony. The Saudis have murdered more than 10,000 civilians in Yemen since March 2015. There are 22 million people facing starvation.2
In the 17 months since the Saudi regime launched its bombing campaign against Yemen, more than 10,000 people have been killed. The country's infrastructure has been destroyed resulting in severe shortage of food, clean drinking water and medicines. The Norwegian Refugee Council in a report released August 8 confirms Yemen's dire straits and warns the catastrophe may prove "irreversible".1
Reader Sarah Salim finds it heart-breaking that the people of Yemen have been virtually forgotten despite being subjected to such terrible suffering.
It is depressing to note the media’s manipulation of Muslims. Our sympathy is aroused for Syrian refugees but there is hardly any mention of the suffering of the people of Yemen. Are they not human beings? Who determines which group of people deserve our help and who does not?
