BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – A Saudi Apache Helicopter reportedly struck a Somalian refugee boat traveling from Yemen’s coastal waters to Sudan on Friday, killing at least 42 civilians in the process.

The attack was reported off the Bab Al-Mandeb Strait, which is located along Yemen’s western coast.

At least 80 refugees carrying papers from the UN’s refugee agency (UNHCR) were rescued off the coast of Yemen today.

The Saudi Ministry of Defense has not commented on this latest attack; however, human rights groups have already begun issuing statements condemning the Kingdom’s actions on Friday.

Saudi warplanes have a history of striking refugees in Yemen, including a brutal attack on the Al-Mazraq Camp inside the city of Harad in March 2015.

Indignante… Trump celebrando con su homologo de la Monarquía Saudi estableciendo acuerdos.
La ONU debe pedir a la comunidad internacional no hacer ningún trato con un país que comete genocidio, esa debe ser la sanción para la Monarquía Saudi, pero como siempre la ONU se mantiene callado.

Nonsense. No damage on boat. Those people haven’t been killed on this boat or somebody did that from very close range execution style. Helicopter????? No way…

Or staged, White-Helmet style…
Nevertheless, with a single picture in low rez, hard to give a serious advice.
One thing is sure : a 30mm shell from an Apache makes damages nearing an offensive grenade. Such a boat would be devastated and… You don’t want to see the carcasses after it…
And I can’t say I’m a fanboy of the al-Saouds’ and their Apartheid regime at all
