Saudi Regime Escalates Atrocities in Yemen amid Media Blackout

Wednesday 15 July 2015
Saudi Regime Escalates Atrocities in Yemen amid Media Blackout
Alwaght-The Saudi regime has carried out over 200 airstrikes in its ongoing aggression against war-battered Yemeni people despite a UN-backed truce and amid a deliberate global media blackout.
The latest aerial bombardments by the Saudi military were carried out throughout Tuesday with war planes first conducting more than 100 airstrikes against various locations in Hajjah and Sa’ada provinces.  At least eight Yemeni civilians were killed when one aerial attack targeted a residential neighborhood in the Harad district of Hajjah.
The Saudi jets further pounded the southwestern province of Aden over 100 times and also hit the nation’s capital city of Sana’a.
The massive airstrikes by the Saudi regime took place despite a UN-brokered ceasefire that went into effect from midnight on Friday. The ceasefire was much needed to rush food supplies to a population threatened by famine.
Meanwhile, global media outlets, especially in  Western countries, have maintained a deliberate blackout or issued misleading reports on the  Saudi atrocities and ethnic cleansing in Yemen. This comes as it emerged recently that the Riyadh regime has been bribing media across the globe to ensure its interests are protected in dissemination of news.
The so called ‘Saudi Cables’, revealed by the whistle blowing WikiLeaks website, were used by Reporters Without Borders to give a better insight at the lengths the Saudi authorities are willing to go to in order to try to present a more positive image of the country abroad.
Riyadh launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Saudi Arabia.
Yemeni sources say more than 4,700 people have been killed since Riyadh started its deadly airstrikes against the country in March 26. Most of the victims of the Saudi war on Yemen are civilians including children, women and the elderly. The brutal Saudi attacks have also not spared civilian infrastructure including hospitals, schools, mosques, bridges, food factories and aid convoys.
