Western-Saudi war crimes resume in Yemen

From Amir: ""On Sunday, mere hours after the peace talks ended, the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition launched 30 air strikes throughout Yemen. Among those killed were at least 18 civilians at a market outside Yemen’s capital, Sanaa. Six members of the same family reportedly died in the attack. Warplanes from the Saudi-led coalition, which has been armed, trained and advised by the U.S., bombed the al-Madeed marketplace in the district of Nehm. Yemeni pharmacist Sadam al-Othari lost his son. The bomb exploded outside his drugstore, killing his child and a customer, and wounding him. “They targeted only civilians,” Othari told The New York Times. “There wasn’t a single gunman or military vehicle around.” "
