Yemen bombed nonstop by Saudi Arabia

Days of bombardment do not appear to end as the Saudi air force keeps dispatching warplanes to strike even more targets across Yemen, which is facing a deteriorating humanitarian situation.

According to the latest media reports on Sunday, Saudi jets pounded the province of Sana’a, targeting residential areas in al-Jaraf, a car gallery and a military college.

In the northwestern province of Sa’ada, reports said at least three civilians lost their lives in as many as ten Saudi airstrikes targeting food carriers in the district of Ghamar.

Saudi aircraft also bombarded a market in the Haydan district of Sa’ada, where at least three people died. Fatalities, including a woman and children, were also reported in similar attacks on the Razih district of the province.

Ta’izz, located in the southwestern part of the impoverished Arab country, was another province that once again came under the airstrikes.

Furthermore, the provinces of Ma’rib, in central Yemen, as well as Hajjah and Dhamar, in the west, were hit by the Saudi airstrikes.

Shocking report by UNICEF

On October 2, Julien Harneis, the representative of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Yemen, said “with every day that passes, children see their hopes and dreams for the future shattered.”

It was late March when Riyadh launched its aerial campaign against Yemen. The fatal military aggression, which has not received a United Nations mandate, aims to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to Saudi ally and fugitive former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Six months of violence in Yemen, UNICEF said, have killed “at least 505 children.” More than 700 kids have been also injured in the airstrikes, and over 1.7 million others are at risk of malnutrition.

“Their homes, schools and communities are being destroyed, and their own lives are increasingly threatened by disease and malnutrition,” the UNICEF official stated.

    First Yemen is a pseudo republic that has trodden upon many Yemenis rights for many, many years. It is not a democracy by any imagination. The Saudis are doing as they did in Bahrain; they are backing up the Sunni majority that runs Yemen and keeps two classes of people in the country – the Sunni elites and the rest.
    Yemen is also noted for shooting peaceful demonstrators in the streets of the capital as many Yemenis struggle for equal rights and equal representation.
    Yemen has also been noted as facilitating the US drone programme and has allowed many US drone sites to operate in Yemen and to kill people in Yemen at will.
    Harper wants to help facilitate the murderous incursion of the Saudis in Yemen with machines of war. Canada should not be making money selling machines of war anywhere.
