130 Massacred at Yemeni Wedding.
Yesterday in Ta’iz a wedding party was targeted by warplanes, more than 13 people were killed.
It was an awful massacre and the scenes of the aftermath are almost unbelievably horrific.
The mangled remains of former human beings were truly stomach churning. The stuff of nightmares.
Wedding parties have been targeted on several occasions by the US military since 2001. According to the Nation magazine the number is at least eight.
The Saudi/Gulf coalition campaign against Yemen has just passed the six month mark having begun on March 26th.
The death toll is at least 5,000 dead of whom it is claimed 2,300 were civilians.
Code Pink activists re enact an earlier US massacre of a Yemeni wedding party.
The Saudi coalition have progressed towards their goals with their choice of Yemeni President,Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, returning to Yemen recently or the first time in six months.
But the idea that Mr. Hadi will be able to resume his Presidency appears to be a fantasy.
Saudi Public Denials are not credible.
According to the Guardian
“Yemeni security officials said two airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition targeting the country’s Shia rebels hit a wedding party, killing 28 people and wounding dozens.”
“The officials, who remain neutral in the conflict that has splintered Yemen, said Monday’s strikes hit the celebration in al-Wahga, a village near the strait of Bab al-Mandab.”
A senior government official said the strikes were “a mistake”.
