More than 100,000 people killed in Yemen war, says new report

More than 100,000 people have died as a result of the war in Yemen, according to an explosive new report by an American NGO.

Based on data collected from a variety of sources, including the United Nations, the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project (ACLED) said the death toll from the four-year-long war was considerably higher than most previous estimates.

Out of the over 100,000 people estimated to have been killed since a Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen's war in 2015 against the Houthi movement, at least 12,000 civilians were killed in direct attacks, the ACLED said.

Already, 2019 has so far been the second deadliest year of the conflict, with more than 20,000 deaths reported. By 2020, ACLED estimated that 102,000 will have been killed as a direct result of violence.

The Saudi-led coalition first intervened in Yemen in March 2015 after Houthi rebels seized control of the capital Sanaa and began closing in on Aden, prompting President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi to flee to Riyadh.

The fighting has driven million to the brink of famine in what has been deemed the world's worst humanitarian crisis by the UN.

According to ACLED, Saudi Arabia and its allies have been responsible for the vast majority of civilian casualties in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, zero mention here about the US government aiding and abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen; people may just start thinking "double ungood thoughts" about their government gone rogue.
