UN Bowed to Saudis Pressure, Removed it From Child Rights Violators List

UN Bowed to Saudis Pressure, Removed it From Child Rights Violators List

Saudi Arabia Urges UN to Remove It from Child Rights Violators List

Alwaght- UN has temporarily removed Saudi Arabia from the blacklist of children’s rights violators, after the intense pressures of Riyadh on UN to turn a blind eye on its heinous crimes against Yemeni people.

The Secretary-General’s Annual Report on Children and Armed Conflict (CAAC), released last Thursday, said the coalition was responsible for 60 percent of child deaths and injuries in Yemen last year, killing 510 and wounding 667, also the reports stated that half of the attacks had been carried out on schools and hospitals.

Riyadh on Monday demanded that its name be scrapped from the list, claiming that figures in the CAAC report were “wildly exaggerated,” because the coalition uses “the most up-to-date equipment in precision targeting,” according to RT.

 “We are asking that this report be corrected immediately so it does not reflect the accusations that have been made against the coalition and Saudi Arabia in particular,” Saudi Arabia's UN Envoy Abdallah Al-Mouallimi said Monday. “If there are any casualties from the coalition side, they would be far, far lower.”

Following the plea by Saudi Arabia, Ban Ki-moon's office said that UN will temporarily remove Riyadh from the list pending a joint review by the world body.

“On the CAAC report, he accepts a proposal by Saudi Arabia that the United Nations and the Saudi-led Coalition review jointly the cases and numbers cited in the text,” the Secretary-General’s office said in a statement. “Pending the conclusions of the joint review, the Secretary-General removes the listing of the Coalition in the report's annex.”

In March 2015, the Saudi regime launched a brutal war on Yemen in an attempt to have Hadi reinstated. Nearly 10,000 people, mostly civilians including women and children, have been killed and at least 16,000 others injured in the Saudi aggression.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to the Saudi regime.

The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, markets, schools, factories and mosques.
