On Monday morning, the Yemeni Army and popular committees advanced in the Jizan Region of Saudi Arabia, capturing another Saudi Army camp after intense firefights that left a half dozen Coalition fighters dead.

Following this loss, the Saudi-led Coalition punished the Yemeni Army and popular committees with relentless airstrikes above the city of Saada, killing a total of 40 civilians and wounding another 70 plus at a public market place inside the Manba District.

These inhuman series of airstrikes came 24 hours after the Saudi-led Coalition conducted an aerial attack above the Manba District of Saada, killing 51 civilians and wounding another 60 others, while the Saudi Apache Helicopters continued to fire on resident attempting to flee the area.

To add to the slaughter, the Saudi-led Coalition launched another flurry of airstrikes above the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, targeting an agglomeration of Houthi resistance fighters inside the Old City (UNESCO World Heritage Site); however, the airstrikes did little damage to the Houthi fighters and more destruction to residential neighborhoods.

Recently, the United Nations (U.N.) released a statistical study that claimed 73 percent of the child fatalities in Yemen were a result of the Saudi-led Coalition airstrikes, while also claiming that the remaining 17 percent were a result of the violence stemming from the Houthi resistance fighters.

The United Nations is as worthless as boots on a boar hog! What has it done to make the Saudi vermin/rodents (as Ziad Fadel refers to them) stop taking civilian lives? striking resdential areas – for shock and awe purposes only! What a worthless pathetic organization – a puppet deluxe for the West.
