Nine civilians, including six children, have been killed in a Saudi airstrike on a three-floor building in the Yemeni province of Sana’a.

Five other people were also injured after the Saudi warplanes targeted the building in Hajar Akkash village in the Bani Matar district late on Friday night.

Saudi Arabia’s air campaign against Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement started on March 26 in a bid to restore power to fugitive former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.


9 Yemeni civilians, including 6 kids, killed in Saudi airstrike.

Saudi Arabia...


Their conquest towards Middle Eastern hegemony has begun.




& already...
They're killing civilians.

Including children...



They may soon overtake Israel on the HR atrocities list if this continues for long enough.




How long before they claim Human shields..?

Like Saudi Arabia isn't barbaric enough to murder innocent people... Right?





In other news...
2 Saudi soldiers bit the dust due to fire on the border...


Is this the retaliation?

Seems like a common tactic of our Middle Eastern allies doesn't it...


Lose a soldier or two, meh, we'll just kill some children.

Barfing & Crying internally!!!

In war civilians die. If you can prove the Saudis knew there were only civilians and purposely attacked the building have at it.
Complaining civilians dieing in war is always akin to war crimes is dumb. This whole idea that only soldiers die is stupid and naive. Why don't you go to court saying WAR is a crime. That would make more sense. I don't think it would make any difference.

They need to get moving. Iran is so far ahead of them right now on that hegemony thing.

Unfortunately, there will almost certainly be more.
War is hell.

If you can prove Airstrikes on 3 storeys buildings have suddenly become discriminate, have at it.

Until them, Ockham's Razor says they knew and continued despite the carnage.

I find it hard to believe that there hasn't been more civilian casualties than the above mentioned and I seriously doubt that Saudi Arabia will overtake Israel, they're a few decades behind Israel in the killing women & kids stakes

UN Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos said in a statement on Thursday, at least 519 people, including women and children, have so far lost their lives in two weeks of violence in Yemen, as Saudi Arabia's airstrikes continue unabated.


They do not specify if that's Yemini forces or Saudi forces doing the killing.

90 children apparently killed too.


Catching up on the Gaza war of 2014 it seems!

Looks like Iran needs to pull out of Yemen.



PressTV is credible.

How about UNICEF saying yesterday that 62 children have died so far?

Is that too Iranian for you?

Nice deflection.

How about the Saudi massacre at the refugee camp the other day?

Just another relic of the warzone I guess!

How can everyone be so silly? Don't they know that the Houthi rebels use special bullets and artillery shells that don't kill civilians?

How childish.

No one has said that or said the rebels are in the right!




This is civilians... children specifically... 70+ children in less than 2 weeks...
Killed by an aggressor...


Those 6 kids were alive this afternoon... This afternoon, sir!!!
Gotta be the rebels fault though... Not the pilots and yes men giving orders to bomb them.

My thoughts differ a little. It was more like how disgusting on your part.

From the beginning of your post it's obvious that you have an agenda and you are more than happy to stand up on the deaths of civilians to toot your horn.

If you were really offended in your OP you would've look at the entire picture. Civilians are dying on both sides from both forces.

But you failed to do that you immediately launched your attack on one side when both were at fault.

Shame on you and your tactics sir.

You can all be as apathetic to the rules of engagement and the criteria of what "happens in war"...
If that's the world you want to live in...


When it's one town over from you, it'll be too late.



"First they came for the Enemy, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not the enemy.

Then they came for the next nations civilians, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not from the next nation.

Then they came for the children, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a child.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Because I was an apathetic POS"


Poem adapted to be relevant for today!
