Sana’a (GPA) – Sunday, September 10th marked the 900th day of Saudi Arabia’s war against Yemen. Here’s exactly what they have destroyed…
In March of 2015, Saudi Arabia, most members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and a number of other countries launched their war against Yemen with the military backing and support of the United States, United Kingdom, and other western allies. Their goal? Prop-up the Saudi-puppet government of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
Saying the war has destroyed Yemen is an understatement. Considering the number of bombs dropped on a daily basis, it’s remarkable anything still stands. Yemen’s Legal Center for Rights and Development (LCRDYE)– an independent organization– keeps a detailed list of everything destroyed by Saudi-coalition airstrikes.
It is important to note that the list below only includes deaths and destruction directly attributed to airstrikes and military aggression. It does not include civilian deaths due to the Saudi-imposed and U.S.-supported blockade. An additional 247,000 (estimated) have died from cholera, lack of medical care, malnutrition, and other life-threatening conditions.
The United Nations and the international community support the Saudi-puppet government of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi. As a result, the UN remains completely silent to Yemen’s cries for help and has done virtually nothing to stop the war, violence, siege, and destruction.
