War & Cholera Decimate Yemen, But Saudi Bombing Gets More US Help

13 July 2017

As Yemen’s cholera epidemic spirals out of control and millions face famine, Alternet reporter Ben Norton says the U.S. is complicit in the humanitarian crisis caused by Saudi-led war.

From Middle East Eye:

On the outskirts of the capital [of Yemen], Sanaa, a witness told AFP that seven members of the same family including women and children were killed by a [Saudi] coalition air strike on Monday. …

Monday’s deadly air raid in Sanaa hit the guard house at a memorial to Egyptian soldiers killed in Yemen in the 60s, according to a witness who served as a first responder.

The guardian of the memorial Ali Mosleh al-Rimi and his wife were killed, along with his four daughters and another relative, Moussaed al-Himi said.

Himi, who helped evacuate the bodies, said two other family members were wounded. Rebel media put the number of dead at 11.

“I saw everything with my own eyes,” Himi said, adding that multiple missiles had hit the house, which was left badly damaged. …

The UN human rights office said it had tallied 136 civilians killed and another 87 wounded in strikes on Sanaa, Saada, Hudaida, Marib and Taez governorates between 6 and 16 December.
