Saudi-Led Coalition Killing Yemeni Civilians: UN

Saudi-Led Coalition Killing Yemeni Civilians: UN

Alwaght- Saudi-led aggression on Yemen is leaving at least an average of 100 civilians dead every month, the United Nations human rights office said on Friday.

In a statement marking the second anniversary since the start of the Saudi war on Yemen on Sunday, the UN agency said it had confirmed 4,773 civilians killed and 8,272 injured in the Saudi-led Arab coalition’s aggression against Yemen.

However, local Yemeni sources put the death toll at over 12,000, including many women and children.

The latest victims included 42 Somali refugees and a Yemeni civilian killed by "shelling from a coalition warship" and shooting by an Apache helicopter in an attack on their boat off Yemen’s coast a week ago, it said. A further 10 are missing. The government of Somalia has blamed Saudi-led forces for carrying out the brutal attack.

Meanwhile, Yemeni news agency, Saba, has reported that at least 68 Yemeni civilians were killed and thirty others wounded, including a woman and two children, in 301 airstrikes launched by US-backed Saudi aggression warplanes on several Yemeni provinces over the past seven days.

In Sana'a, the aggression warplanes launched 28 air strikes on Nehm and Arhb districts. The strikes targeted farms, roads, shops and schools.

Also in Sana'a, four women and one girl were wounded by the air raids on the village of Alrmadh aera in Nehm directorate.

In Sa'ada, the aggression launched 69 airstrikes on several districts, including Dhahir and Ketaf, Bakim, Razih, Al-Saefe Camp, as well as other different areas of Monabbih district. Two cluster bombs were dropped by the enemy Saudi warplanes that targeted many areas of Sa'ada. Five citizens were killed and 11 wounded in enemy airstrike on Al-Safra directorate and Al-Mgsal district, also in Sa'ada.

For two years now, Yemen has borne the brunt of a brutal Saudi-led and US-backed aggression which was launched to undermine the Ansarullah movement and restore to power fugitive Abdul Rabuh Mansour Hadi who resigned and fled the country.

The Saudi military aggression has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, mosques and factories. This illegal aggression has prompted retaliation from Yemeni forces including launching missile attacks on Saudi military installations in the country’s capital Riyadh.
