An air strike by a Saudi-led coalition on a market in Yemen killed 20 civilians and six rebels on Friday, medical and military sources said.

The aircraft tried to target Houthi rebels at a roadblock on the southern outskirts of the Red Sea port of Khoukha, but the fighters fled to a market where they were attacked, the sources claimed.

Yemen war turns two

This month the war in Yemen is 2 years old. It pits a coalition of mostly wealthy Arab countries, led by Saudi Arabia, supporting President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi's government against a ragged alliance of Houthi Shiite rebels and backers of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who enjoy Iranian support. Despite occasional claims that victory is near by the Saudi-backed Hadi loyalists, there is little prospect for the war to end. The Yemeni people, the poorest in Arabia, are paying a terrible price.

UN warns of catastrophe as 18m face famine in Yemen

Millions of Yemenis are on the verge of starvation the United Nations has warned, as the body said the world is facing its biggest humanitarian crisis since 1945.

The warning came as part of a worldwide plea by senior UN aid workers, faced with almost 20 million people across just four countries - Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and Kenya - confronting starvation and famine.

On January 29, 5-year-old Sinan al Ameri was asleep with his mother, his aunt, and 12 other children in a one-room stone hut typical of poor rural villages in the highlands of Yemen. A little after 1 a.m., the women and children awoke to the sound of a gunfight erupting a few hundred feet away. Roughly 30 members of Navy SEAL Team 6 were storming the eastern hillside of the remote settlement.

The main goal of 21-year-old Ibrahim, youngest of five siblings and the only one to reach university, is to complete his degree and secure a better future.

That, and staying alive.

To pay for his university studies, Ibrahim, who asked that his real name not be revealed, must brave the sniper-infested streets of Taiz city as a part-time soldier in Yemen's bitter civil war.

Die USA helfen in ganzer Ruhe Saudi-Arabien, verheerende Luftangriffe auf den Jemen durchzuführen

Eine Woche vor den Terrorangriffen von Brüssel bombte die von Saudi-Arabien angeführte Koalition einen Marktplatz in Mastaba im Jemen. Obwohl in Mastaba mehr Menschen den Tod fanden als in Brüssel — 106 gegen 34 — ignorierten die Medien und die internationale Gemeinschaft im Allgemeinen jene frühere Gräueltat, wie sie auch den Großteil der 150 willkürlichen Luftangriffe außer Acht ließen, von denen die Vereinten Nationen und Human Rights Watch im letzten Jahr berichteten.

Exclusive: Britain's 'confused' Yemen policy is increasing the risk of UK terror attack, warns Andrew Mitchell

Britain is increasing the likelihood of a terrorist attack on UK soil if the Government does not rethink its "confused" policy in Yemen, a former International Development Secretary has warned.

Andrew Mitchell, speaking on his return from Yemen, said Britain's support for the Saudi Coalition "will stoke a further generation of terror" and lead to "threats to Europe."

Yemen Vote - The Responsibility To Protect Profits

At first sight, compassion appears to loom large in 'mainstream' politics and media. When the American and British governments target countries like Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, 'compassion' is always at or near the top of the agenda.

Time and again, the cry from the political system is: 'We Must Do Something!' 'We' must save Afghan women from the 'Medieval' Taliban. 'We' must save Kuwaiti new-borns flung from their incubators by Iraqi stormtroopers. 'We' must save Iraqi civilians from Saddam's shredding machines. 'We' must save civilians in Kosovo from Milosevic's 'final solution'.

Nearly 2.2 million Yemeni children are acutely malnourished, victims of the near-collapse of the healthcare system during two years of escalating conflict, UN children's agency UNICEF said on Tuesday.

At least 462,000 are suffering from severe acute malnutrition, as food supplies have been disrupted by the devastating war between the Saudi-backed government and Shia Houthi rebels, the agency said.

Saada province, a rebel bastion in the far north, has the world's highest stunting rate among children with eight out of 10 children affected in some areas, it added.

"Malnutrition in Yemen is at an all-time high and increasing," said UNICEF's acting country representative, Meritxell Relano.

Comprising more than 200 emails and 300 PDFs, the collection details official documents and correspondence pertaining to the Office for Military Cooperation (OMC) located at the US embassy. The collection spans the period from 2009 until just before the war in Yemen broke out in earnest during March 2015. This time period covers both Hillary Clinton's term as Secretary of State (20092013) and the first two years of Secretary John Kerry’s tenure.

Obama Is Killing Yemen: A Yemeni Journalist Speaks Out After U.S.-Backed Bombing Strikes Funeral

On Sunday, thousands of Yemenis gathered at the United Nations building in Sana’a calling for an international investigation into the U.S-backed Saudi assault on a funeral. The attack was carried out with warplanes and munitions sold to the Saudi-led coalition by the United States. The U.S. Air Force continues to provide midair refueling to Saudi warplanes. According to the U.N., more than 4,000 civilians have been killed and over 7,000 injured since the Saudi-led coalition bombing began last year. Airstrikes have reportedly caused about 60 percent of the deaths. We go to Sana’a to speak with Yemeni journalist Nasser Arrabyee and Sarah Leah Whitson of Human Rights Watch.

U.S. and U.K. Continue to Actively Participate in Saudi War Crimes, Targeting of Yemeni Civilians

From the start of the hideous Saudi bombing campaign against Yemen 18 months ago, two countries have played active, vital roles in enabling the carnage: the U.S. and U.K. The atrocities committed by the Saudis would have been impossible without their steadfast, aggressive support.

The Obama administration “has offered to sell $115 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia over its eight years in office, more than any previous U.S. administration,” as The Guardian reported this week, and also provides extensive surveillance technology. As The Intercept documented in April, “In his first five years as president, Obama sold $30 billion more in weapons than President Bush did during his entire eight years as commander in chief.”

More than half of Yemen's population is suffering from malnutrition, the United Nations told MEE on Wednesday, while warning the war-torn nation faces imminent famine.

A spokesperson for the UN’s office of humanitarian affairs said 51 percent of the population - some 14.1 million people - “are suffering from food insecurity and malnutrition today”.

Cholera outbreak hits war-torn Yemen: UNICEF

War-torn Yemen is suffering from a cholera outbreak, the UN's children agency said on Friday, posing a further threat to infants in the impoverished nation.

"This outbreak adds to the misery of millions of children in Yemen," UNICEF Yemen representative Julien Harneis said in a statement.

"Children are at a particularly high risk if the current cholera outbreak is not urgently contained, especially since the health system in Yemen is crumbling as the conflict continues."

The American-made catastrophe in Yemen

For a generation of Americans old enough to remember, the Korean conflict is often dubbed the “forgotten war”. Where Hollywood has lionised or contextualised those who fought in the Second World War and Vietnam, the nearly 2 million Americans who fought on the Korean peninsula in the early 1950s have largely been airbrushed from history.

Fast forward 60 odd years, and Americans find themselves participating in yet another forgotten war: Yemen.

Where the unfolding tragedy in Syria has grabbed media attention in the US over the course of the past five years, at least intermittingly, America’s participation and contribution towards alleged war crimes and the unmitigated humanitarian crisis in Yemen is yet to have even grabbed the attention of CNN’s scrolling news ticker.

BAE in talks with Saudi over multi-billion pound deal as Yemen war continues

BAE Systems is in discussions with Saudi Arabia over a multi-billion pound arms contract, according to an announcement on Thursday.

The deal is likely to be controversial, taking place against a backdrop of a Saudi-led military campaign against Houthi rebels in Yemen which has been accused of helping to create a humanitarian disaster in the impoverished country.

"Discussions between BAE Systems, the UK government and the Saudi Arabian government are progressing to define the scope and terms of the next five-year Saudi-British Defence Co-operation Programme," BAE told the Stock Exchange on Thursday.

British MPs last month called for an arms ban to be imposed on Saudi Arabia pending an investigation of alleged war crimes and human rights abuses in Yemen. The UK sold military equipment worth £3.3bn to Saudi Arabia during the first year of the conflict.

Gangsters in war-torn Yemen ensnare women to do their dirty work

Teenager Asma Mahboob was alone in the family home on that fateful Thursday night in September.

The rest of her family, who live in Aden, Yemen, were away at a neighbour’s wedding; Asma, 13, had chosen to stay at home. Her father, Mohammed, had told his daughter not to open the door to strangers as there had been talk in the Crater district, where they live, of thieves operating in the area.

Then there was the knock at the door.

Asma recognized the voice as a friend of her mother’s, someone from a poor family whom her mother used to help. And it was early – only 7pm. The young teen let the woman into the home and then went to make them both tea.

It was while Asma was distracted that the visitor opened the door - and let in fellow gang members who stormed the family home.

The thieves, who Mohammed believes had been watching the house, tied the teenager up before escaping with jewelry valued at about YR100,000 ($400), $160 hidden in a clothes cupboard and other belongings valued at $80.

New PostErstellt: 24.09.16, 22:10  Betreff: Fatwa forbids work of female activists in Yemen's Taiz  drucken  weiterempfehlen

Naseem al-Odaini, an activist in Taiz, has been monitoring Houthi violations in the war-torn Yemeni city since April 2015, using her phone and notebooks to take photos and document civilian casualties.

Working with more than 20 women and men volunteers within the initiative "Love it", she helps reveal violations to the world through social media and various media outlets.

Three months ago, however, noted Islamic scholar Abdullah al-Odaini issued a fatwa (religious ruling), forbidding female and male activists from working together, arguing that Islam prohibits the free mixing of women and men.

The fatwa has created resentment and fear among activists, who reply that they too are supporters of the anti-Houthi Popular Resistance, the same as Abdullah al-Odaini, who is also a member of the Yemeni parliament and imam of Taiz's al-Noor mosque.
