Sana’a (GPA) – Last week marked the 800th day of US-Saudi aggression against Yemen. Schools, homes, factories, farms and so on have been destroyed. Not one sector of the community is safe.
Looking back on the past 800 days, Yemen’s Observatory News Agency has released a set of statistics detailing just how much damage the US-Saudi coalition has caused. The table below demonstrates the sheer ruthlessness of the Saudi-led coalition against Yemen. Sports stadiums, markets, funerals, ports, hospitals. The list is seemingly endless.
The table below does not take in to account the some 100k people infected with cholera. Nearly 1000 have died from this– very preventable illness– alone.
Here’s the break down…
|Electrical Stations and Power Generators||162|
|Water Tanks and Networks||368|
|Stations and Communication Networks||353|
|Destroyed and Damaged Houses||404.485|
