Saudi warplanes target US intelligence-designated sites. Civilian men, women and children are considered fair game. They suffer most in all wars.
Deliberately targeting them is longstanding US policy – a shocking war crime by any standard.
Tuesday was the latest example. Reports indicate Saudi warplanes struck a populated Ma’rib area. A local source said dozens of defenseless schoolchildren were massacred in cold blood.
The exact number of dead and wounded isn’t known. The source indicated massive Saudi terror-bombing killed dozens.
Yemeni army spokesman Col. Sharif Luqman said:
“Saudi attacks have left over 2,265 housing units totally demolished.”
“The US is with the Saudis, but God is with the Yemenis.” He promised a crushing response, adding:
“The Yemeni people will fight to the last drop of their blood to safeguard the sovereign independence of their country.”
Saudis are the main backers of regional terrorism, he said. They killed 214 women, including five pregnant ones, he added.
He estimates over 2,500 people killed so far, including hundreds of civilian men, women and children.
