UN Report: Saudi Coalition Behind Most Yemen Child Casualties | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

UN Report: Saudi Coalition Behind Most Yemen Child Casualties

The annual “Children and Armed Conflict” report from the United Nations details the deaths of Yemeni children in the Saudi-led invasion. Unsurprisingly, the overwhelming majority of the slain were killed by the Saudi-led coalition.

The UN report verified 552 children killed in 2017 in Yemen. 67% of those children, 370, were directly attributable to the Saudi coalition, predominantly the result of Saudi airstrikes. Saudi airstrikes killing civilians have been an ongoing problem since the invasion.

The report said 83 children were killed in actions by the Houthi rebels, with another 41 killed by fighters loyal to the Saudi-backed government. The others were killed by that government, international allies, and a handful by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

These UN reports on child casualties have been controversial in recent years because of their coverage of the Yemen conflict. Saudi Arabia has repeatedly demanded the UN retract previous statements, and at times they have.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government is deeply enmeshed in enabling these Saudi war crimes in Yemen; and as an American who does care, very much, about the future of American foreign policy, I am absolutely outraged at this, and also at the lack of outrage I see in the attitudes of my brother and sister Americans; of course, they can be forgiven, to some degree, for their willful ignorance, but not completely.

After all, when was the last time you saw US military involvement in Yemen covered by the corporate US presstitutes, whose business it is to deflect American awareness from the evil which this country inflicts in so many parts of this planet?!? The short answer is, nearly never.

But I am calling on everyone who doesn't know or understand what is going on here, to take a good hard look at the following compilation of images, and ask themselves: do I really want this being done in my name, and with my tax dollars?!?

Images: Yemeni children getting killed by Saudi airstrikes

If these images don't tear your hearts apart, particularly in understanding that the US government and military are enabling these Saudi war crimes in Yemen, you cannot possibly be human.
