A Saudi-led coalition airstrike has hit a Médecins sans Frontières hospital in Yemen, the latest bombing of a civilian target in the seven-month air campaign in the country.



“It could be a mistake, but the fact of the matter is it’s a war crime. There’s no reason to target a hospital. We provided [the coalition] with all of our GPS coordinates about two weeks ago,” he said. At least two staff members were hurt by flying debris, according to Boucenine.

Well, just spent the last 30mins reading about this war.

I, for one, have discovered that the Houthi's seem to be good people. The US backed Yemeni government, surprise surprise, was felled by the Arab Spring....which is hilariously ironic given the true origins of the Arab Spring to begin with.

Read the below carefully, from Wikipedia:


According to the 2009 US Embassy cable leaked by WikiLeaks, Houthis have reportedly established courts and prisons in areas they control. They impose their own laws on local residents, demand protection money, and dispense rough justice by ordering executions. AP's reporter, Ahmad al-Haj argued that the Houthis were winning hearts and minds by providing security in areas long neglected by the Yemeni government (currently ousted) while limiting the arbitrary and abusive power of influential sheikhs. According to the Civic Democratic Foundation, Houthis help resolve conflicts between tribes and reduce the number of revenge killings in areas they control. The US ambassador believed that the reports that explain Houthi role as arbitrating local disputes were more likely than the sinister[unbalanced opinion] suggestions.[79][80]

So the Houthi's are the terrorists? Even though they deposed a US backed government and are fighting Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Saudi Arabia?

Shock.Horror.Disbelief.

Whats the range of anti ship missles anyway? If they have lost three ships they must be in a world of hurt. . . .

I know there was a naval blockade against Yemen, maybe the ships were sunk. . .. . .

I wonder if the naval blockade is still there?

Names of those 3 ships?

It actually doesn't prove that at all.

You can think that of course, but it is not proof they are lying to you.

Actually being there, going to the place they are reporting from and presumably not using green screens a la CNN etc. is proof they went there to report...ergo, there's basic proof they go the extra mile, but no proof they're lying.

You are free to believe what you like, but a belief is just that.

Here is a video kind of touching on what sides are being formed. . . . .

Yemen crisis brings Mideast to the brink

Sooo umm yeah they are calling in thier terrorist armies now!

The Syrian military says hundreds of Daesh or ISIL terrorists have been flown to southern Yemen to fight alongside Saudi troops against Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters.

The Saudis just bombed a hospital in Yemen. . . . . In case you didnt know hospitals are now fair game!

From their past history of mis reporting even going there does not make up for being caught in blatant lies for Russia during the Ukraine debacle.

If you ar e in a full on war like we used to do hospitals were fair game. If they have a safe zone to hide you cannot win against them. Also BOTH sides have hit civilian sites. Terrorist using human shields yet again to get propaganda wins is very obvious.

a reply to: Dr UAE

They are not backed by Iran. Maybe some training to Rebel fighters but the arms are mainly obtained via Yemens black market. Saleh was a selfish man and allied with the Houthi's until he was named earlier this year as an ally to Houthi and again he has run off with tail between legs asking Saudi's for help (probably to do with economic sanctions).

The Yemen government was deposed by the Houthi's AND THE YEMEN PUBLIC. Why do you think ISIL are fighting alongside Saudi and Al-Qaeda against the Houthi's?

You do realise good education generally only comes from wealthy countries, and with Yemen being one of the poorest I can only assume the 'well-educated' people are the rich 1% who are already aligned with Saudi-Arabia. Your statement only proves my thoughts about this conflict. The poor underrepresented people finally rose up and now the rich are trying to push them back down.

Seems that the Russians in Syria are causing the Saudis to move their ISIS forces to Yemen ....

Militants from all over the Middle East arrived at the military camp Salah al-Din in the Yemeni city of Aden to join Islamic State and fight against Houthi rebels, a Yemeni security source told Sputnik.

"Hundreds of armed militants who came from other provinces of Yemen and from abroad started their training in the Salah al-Din camp in Aden," the source said on the condition of anonymity.

According to him, the exact number of the fighters is unknown. Approximately, there are about 1,500- 2,000 people who arrived in the city to join the terrorist organization.

"In recent days, several planes with hundreds of fighters aboard landed at the airport of Aden under condition of high secrecy and reinforced security," the source said.
Earlier, it was reported that over 500 ISIL militants had been transported from Syria to Yemen on planes that had arrived from Turkey.
