Renewed Saudi-led bombardment kills, wounds dozens of Yemeni civilians

22 June 2015

Saudi-led airstrikes killed at least 15 and wounded scores more this weekend during attacks against targets in Marib, Saada, Lahj, Jawf and Aden, according to Yemeni media.

War planes under the Saudi-led Arab coalition also struck the Sanaa International Airport in Yemen’s capital over the weekend, and at least three civilians were killed Sunday by shelling of Aden’s Al Naqib hospital.

The latest fatalities add to the more than 3,000 civilians killed since the beginning of Operation Decisive Storm in late March. The real civilian death toll may be as high as 6-8,000 according to differing estimates.

At least 6 million Yemenis currently face starvation or near-starvation conditions, and at least 9 million lack reliable access to water, according to UN estimates released last week.

Saudi forces have continued to deploy illegal cluster munitions against targets in Yemen, according to evidence published by Human Rights Watch last week.

Syrian women’s rights campaigner faces deportation and certain death

Saturday 20th June 2015

A SYRIAN refugee living in Leeds faces deportation to Saudi Arabia where she faces almost certain death, campaigners said yesterday.

Raja Khouja, a women’s rights campaigner, is detained at the notorious Yarl’s Wood detention centre in Bedfordshire and is threatened with removal to Saudi Arabia on Thursday next week, June 25.

Ms Khouja’s criticism of women’s rights abuses in Saudi Arabia has sparked email and phone threats of death, imprisonment and mutilation — including for her limbs to be severed — if she goes to Saudi Arabia.

She has lived in Leeds with her Saudi husband Mahmoud Alhassan for four years.

Their asylum request is backed by Leeds-based Positive Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

A spokesman for the group, who has launched a petition against her removal, said she will be in “extreme danger” if she is deported.

“They are much loved and respected by her community of friends here in Leeds and we are gravely concerned for her safety were she to be removed to Saudi Arabia,” they said.

WikiLeaks puts 70,000 Saudi documents online

Today, 18:24

The website WikiLeaks puts today some 70,000 Saudi Arabian diplomatic documents online. They consist of intercepted e-mail traffic between the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other countries and secret documents from other Saudi ministries. Most messages are from the period 2010-2015.

The next few weeks WikiLeaks will publish still nearly half a million more.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange called Saudi Arabia an “ever more unstable and secretive dictatorship, which this year alone has celebrated its 100th beheading, but also has become a threat to its neighbours and to itself”.

The documents, in Arabic, are said to show how the kingdom maintains its relationships, how it strengthens its position as a regional power in the Middle East and bribes people and institutions to establish links.

Saudi-led strikes pound Yemen, dozens of women & children killed

5 June 2015

Saudi-led coalition warplanes are continuing to pound Houthi targets in Yemen despite the rebels agreeing to UN-backed peace talks. The strikes have killed 58 people across the country over the past two days, according to the Houthis. And the humanitarian situation is getting worse by the day, according to the UN humanitarian office, but the casualties are coming not only directly from the fighting – the collapse of the infrastructure also means critically ill patients are not receiving treatment.
