Another Saudi Coalition Wedding Massacre in Yemen | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Another Saudi Coalition Wedding Massacre in Yemen

This is just the latest wedding massacre carried out by Saudi coalition forces. The coalition has illegally treated all of Saada as a military target for three years, and it has routinely struck civilian targets ever since. U.S. military assistance to the coalition enables attacks like this one, and it has not made coalition attacks any less likely to hit civilian targets. On the contrary, by providing the coalition with unconditional backing for its campaign and refusing to criticize them for their war crimes the U.S. makes attacks on civilians a certainty. There is no excuse for providing weapons and fuel to governments that slaughter people in their homes, schools, markets, and during their wedding celebrations. That support must end, and it is long past time that Congress voted to end it.

The coalition has consistently shown flagrant disregard for the lives of civilians in Yemen. A similar wedding massacre in a small village in Hajjah in April of this year killed 23 people, including the bride. Alex Potter visited the site and reported on the condition of the survivors earlier this month:

The missile had struck around 11 p.m., killing 23 of the revelers, and wounding over 60, according to villagers who spoke with The Intercept. Most of the dead were in pieces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as I have breath, I will peacefully, logically, and clearly witness to the US enabling of Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

These people, particularly the children, are not "expendable" or collateral damage; they were innocent civilians who had the horrifically bad luck to be at the absolute wrong place at the absolute wrong time.

Here are some images of what the US is assisting the Saudis in doing in Yemen:

If you can look at these, and feel absolutely nothing about the pain, suffering, and death these US-enabled Saudi troops are creating, toward a complete genocide of the Yemeni people... I'm sorry, but you cannot truly be a human being.
