Yemen oppressed and Destroyed by Saudi Arabia for looting oil and rule over Yemenis. #America, #England, #France, #Germany, #Israel, #Russia etc are more involved in killing Yemeni people because of selling weapons to Saudi Arabia
******************* The UN human rights office said it had tallied 136 civilians killed and another 87 injured in the strikes on Sanaa, Saada, Al Hudaydah, Marib and Taez governorates between December 6 and 16. “We are deeply concerned by the recent surge in civilian casualties in Yemen as a result of intensified air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition,” spokesman Rupert Colville told #reporters in #Geneva.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in #Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
According to official figures, more than 8,750 people have been killed in the #aggression since the intervention in the impoverished #Arabian #Peninsula #country, where more than 2,000 people have also died of cholera this year.
Colville said the rights office had verified that four civilians were killed on December 9 when coalition strikes hit the official Yemen TV channel, Qanat Al Yemen.
At least seven civilians were also killed when air strikes hit the Al #Hudaydah on December 10, with 45 more perishing in attacks on a prison in #Sanaa three days later
Colville called on all sides in the conflict to “take all feasible precautions to avoid, and in any event to minimize, the impact of violence on civilians.” #UN rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein lamented “the total impunity that seems to exist (in) attacks from all sides”, although he said “the majority of casualties is still coming from the coalition air strikes.” #yemen
