Saudi-led coalition blamed for helicopter gunship massacre of Somali refugees

Background: Somalia has blamed the Saudi-led coalition for Friday’s attack on a boat that killed at least 42 Somali refugees off the coast of Yemen, calling the massacre by a military vessel and a helicopter gunship “horrific,” said a report.

“More than 111,500 migrants landed on Yemen’s shores last year, up from around 100,000 the year before, according to the Regional Mixed Migration Secretariat, a grouping of international agencies that monitors migration in the area.”

FIRE-EARTH Report: Wahhabi Arabia, Allies Committing War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity in Yemen

Background:

“In a new horrible massacre against Yemen, more than 20 people have been martyred in a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a marketplace in the town of al-Hudaydah in Yemen. Graphic footage appears to show debris and bodies burning in the aftermath of the bombing,” said a report.

AFP reported  26 people had been killed in the airstrike, while Al-Masirah TV channel reported the toll as 27 killed and dozens more wounded in the attack, YemenPress said.

Riyadh and its allies stand accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity for continuing to target residential areas and public gatherings. At least 61 such airstrikes have been documented by Human Rights Watch [HRW.]

HRW reported in October that the Saudi coalition, “with direct military support from the US and assistance from the UK,” conducted at least 58 “unlawful airstrikes.”

The UN humanitarian organization has stated that about 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen as a result of the Saudi-led military campaign, with 7 million people close to starvation.

At least 1,400 children have been killed as a result of Saudi aggression, according to World Health Organization.

Human Rights Watch

The humanitarian situation in Yemen is “increasingly unsustainable” and the urgent action must be taken to stop the country plunging further into a “deep humanitarian catastrophe” as the situation “cannot continue like this for very long,” said the Human Rights Watch [HRW] representative for Middle East & North Africa.

“We ourselves, at Human Rights Watch, were able to document 61 apparent unlawful airstrikes, all conducted by the coalition, some of which may amount indeed to war crimes and that have killed nearly 900 civilians and have hit civilian areas, including markets, schools, hospitals and private homes,” he said.

He has called on western powers, “who are continuing to supply Saudi Arabia with weapons despite the damning evidence of its human rights violations in Yemen, to immediately halt deliveries.”

“We clearly recommend that the United States, the United Kingdom, France and others should suspend all weapons sales to Saudi Arabia until they curtail their unlawful airstrikes in Yemen and until also a credible investigation is conducted about those violations,” the HRW representative said, adding that previous investigations conducted by the coalition do not appear to HRW to be “fair or credible.”
