03 March 2017 “The United States said it carried out more than 20 strikes in Yemen targeting al-Qaeda on Thursday, in the first major operations against the group since a botched US commando raid against the group left a number of civilians and a Navy SEAL dead. The operations come a month after the January 29 raid on al-Bayda that residents said killed 16 civilians as well as al-Qaeda fighters.” 30 January 2017 “At least 10 Yemeni women and children have been killed in the first US military operation in the country authorised by President Donald Trump, medics and local media have said. Medics in al-Bayda's rural Yakla district put the death toll at around 30, including 10 women and children. The eight-year-old daughter of Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born Yemeni preacher who was killed in a 2011 drone attack, was also among the victims, family members said. Her grandfather Nasser al-Awlaki, a former minister of agriculture said: "she was hit with a bullet in her neck and suffered for two hours". "Why kill children? This is the new [US] administration - it's very sad, a big crime," he told the Reuters news agency. Trump called the operation a success and said intelligence gathered during the operation would help the United States fight "terrorism". "Americans are saddened this morning with news that a life of a heroic service member has been taken in our fight against the evil of radical Islamic terrorism," Trump said in a statement. Stephen Zunes, the head of the Middle Eastern Studies Program at the University of San Francisco, said this kind of intervention has only provoked more backlash against the US in the past. "Drone strikes and intervention over the past 15 years have stirred up more terror, extremisim and anti-Americanism than it has curbed, and this incident will once again resume the debate whether this is an effective counter-terrorism strategy," he told Al Jazeera. http://www.aljazeera.com/Search/?q=... 15 October 2016 • 7:05pm <The Saudi-led coalition battling Yemeni rebels said on Saturday that one of its warplanes had "wrongly targeted" a funeral in the capital Sanaa, killing more than 140 people, and announced disciplinary proceedings. The October 8 strike prompted an international outcry and strong criticism even from Saudi Arabia's closest Western allies. "Because of non-compliance with coalition rules of engagement and procedures, and the issuing of incorrect information, a coalition aircraft wrongly targeted the location, resulting in civilian deaths and injuries," an inquiry team found. "Appropriate action... must be taken against those who caused the incident, and... compensation must be offered to the families of the victims." The strike was one of the deadliest in the coalition's nearly 19-month-old bombing campaign in support of Yemen's beleaguered government. More than 6,700 people have been killed in the impoverished Arabian Peninsula country since the coalition first intervened, nearly two-thirds of them civilians, according to the United Nations.> http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Yemen Today “A cholera epidemic has killed some 1,310 people in war-torn Yemen since late April, the World Health Organization (WHO) said, warning that as many as 300,000 could get infected by the end of August.
