If Saudi Arabia and its partners are this bloodily incompetent in Yemen, why does anybody in the Trump administration think they’ll be much use against Iran? From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Though we are no longer shocked at the callous and indiscriminate nature of Saudi coalition attacks on Yemeni towns, we are surprised that major US networks like CNN have actually decided to cover coalition war crimes for a change.
Early on Thursday a coalition air attack scored a direct hit on a school bus packed with children as it drove through a crowded market place.
CNN provides the following disturbing details:
The bus was struck as it was driving through a market in the rebel-held province of Saada, according to the Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV.
At least 43 people were killed and 63 injured in the strike, according to the Houthi-held health ministry.
The International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) said that a hospital it supports in Saada had received 29 dead bodies of “mainly children” under 15 years of age, and 40 injured, including 30 children.
Some of the images to come out of area hospitals currently treating the wounded confirm that it’s mostly children among the casualties.
International media featured photographs of wounded children being treated in area hospitals in the aftermath of the airstrike, which happened in Dahyan, in the rebel-held north of Yemen; however, most of the images of dead and wounded released by Yemeni media accounts are too graphic and disturbing to show.
