June 7: A Grim Anniversary of US-Saudi Aggression in Yemen - Years of Devastation and War Crimes

Yemen: On this day in the years 2015, 2017, and 2019, the US-Saudi aggression and its mercenaries continued to commit war crimes against humanity and horrific massacres.

 

They targeted residential neighborhoods, destroying homes, as well as commercial shops, markets, and infrastructure, scattering cluster bombs across Yemeni land.

The aggression's airstrikes resulted in 95 martyrs and 360 injured in a horrific massacre and genocide in the capital, 3 martyrs and 3 injured in Hodiedah, 6 injured and property losses worth hundreds of millions in Saada, and one martyr and two injured by a cluster bomb. Additionally, the Yemeni General Telecommunication Office in Sana'a was destroyed, leading to internal displacement and a state of fear, panic, and sorrow among the residents.

June 7, 2015: 455 Martyrs and Injured in a War Crime by Aggression's Airstrikes in Sana'a

On June 7, 2015, the US-Saudi aggression continued to commit more acts of genocide, brutal massacres, and war crimes against humanity in Yemen. This time, the residential neighborhood near the Command Building in the Al-Tahrir district was targeted with several airstrikes.

The aggression's airstrikes resulted in a horrific massacre with 95 martyrs and 360 injured citizens. These victims included passersby on the main street and those sleeping under the roofs of their homes, including children, women, and the elderly. The attack caused widespread fear and panic, leading to a massive wave of displacement, while the airstrikes continued, filling the air with scenes of destruction, dust, fire, the smell of death, and scattered bodies. There was extensive and widespread destruction of homes and shops in the vicinity, with material losses amounting to hundreds of millions.

Deliberate Massacre Against Civilians

Many bodies were collected in pieces; some were unrecognizable. One pile contained crushed body parts, a child's leg was found next to an arm of a passerby, beside a corpse with its stomach ripped open, and another where shrapnel had destroyed the head and facial features. Charred remains were collected in boxes and bags, unidentifiable.

The area near the Command Building is not a military barracks but homes of citizens with their children and families, located in a busy commercial district known for its constant hustle and bustle of buying and selling. However, the aggression did not care about any of this. The target was deliberately chosen for its high population density to satiate their thirst for blood and their malicious desire to kill the Yemeni people, falsely thinking they would achieve a victory and media hype to boost their followers' morale and break the will of a resilient nation.

Women who fled their homes recounted the fear and horror following seven airstrikes on their residences. One woman said, "They destroyed our home and killed my children while we were sleeping. My neighbor lost her unborn baby from the shock of the explosion, and the children lost their minds. We are now homeless, living with others. Where do we go? Who will help us? We lost everything in an instant—no father to support the family, no house to live in, no money to rent a place."

Another man said, "Yesterday, I lost my memory for more than five minutes; it felt like Judgment Day. Everything around me was destroyed while I watched, children screamed, women wailed, and blood covered the place with bodies torn apart in every direction. I couldn't comprehend what was happening, as if in a nightmare. I kept touching my head and limbs, grabbing familiar faces, and asking, 'What is this? Are we dreaming? Is this real? What's your name?' The blood, screams, death, and destruction dominated the scene."

Hospitals in the capital Sana'a were overwhelmed with the injured and martyrs, along with their relatives, rescuers, and paramedics. There were no available beds, and a state of emergency was declared. The public was called to donate blood, and the Ministry of Health mobilized all its resources for rescue, first aid, surgeries, and general medical operations to save lives and lift the spirits of the injured.

One doctor stated, "Most injuries were to the head, limbs, and chest. Two women who were pregnant lost their babies. The condition of the injured is critical, and the morale of the families is shattered. It is a tragic situation in every sense of the word."

The aggression's airstrikes had targeted the neighborhood five days earlier and did not hesitate to attack it again, setting a precedent for its brutality and repeated genocidal war crimes against humanity in Yemen over the past nine years.

June 7, 2015: Aggression Targets Yemen Telecommunication Corporation in Sana'a

On June 7, the aggression targeted the office of the Yemen General Telecommunication Corporation for the second time with five airstrikes, shaking the Wadi Dhahr area.

The airstrikes resulted in the destruction of the office, the telecommunications network, and its accessories in the area, the burning of telecommunications equipment, damage to nearby citizens' homes and properties, and widespread fear and panic among children and women, leading to displacement.

Targeting infrastructure has been a strategic goal of the aggression since its first airstrikes on March 26, 2015, continuing its destructive plan against Yemen's infrastructure with thousands of airstrikes on thousands of civilian and service institutions and facilities over nine years.

June 7, 2017: Aggression Targets Ghamar Market in Saadah

On June 7, 2017, the US-Saudi aggression targeted Ghamar Market, commercial shops, and vendors in Razih District, Saadah.

The airstrikes resulted in six injuries among vendors and shoppers, destruction, and fires in commercial shops, significant property losses, ruined goods, widespread fear and panic among nearby villagers, and millions in financial losses, exacerbating the citizens' struggle to obtain basic necessities.

Targeting crowded markets is a strategic goal to commit more genocide and horrific massacres against the Yemeni people. The Ghamar Market attack is one of thousands of crimes against Yemeni markets over nine years, constituting a full-fledged war crime targeting civilian sites, according to international law and treaties prohibiting attacks on densely populated areas and their essential needs.

June 7, 2018: Aggression Targets Home and Farm in Saadah

On June 7, 2018, the aggression targeted the home and farm of citizen Ahmed Atel in the Al-Talh area of Sahar District, Saadah.

The airstrike damaged the house and farm, instilling fear and panic among residents, causing a new wave of displacement to mountains and caves.

Targeting Ahmed Atel's home is one of thousands of crimes committed against the Yemeni people over nine consecutive years, constituting a full-fledged war crime against civilian sites and populated areas, with prior intent.

June 7, 2019: Shelling by Aggression’s Mercenaries in Hodeidah

On June 7, 2019, the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression's mercenaries targeted a residential neighborhood on Al-Shuhada Street in Al-Hali District, Hodeidah, with dozens of artillery shells and various medium and heavy weapons.

The shelling resulted in three civilian deaths and three injuries, including a mother and her child who had gone to visit relatives on the fourth day of Eid, only to be killed. The event turned celebration into mourning, fear, and displacement, with significant damage to citizens' homes.

The aggression's mercenaries targeting residential neighborhoods make staying at or leaving homes a waiting game for death and injury, forcing every able person to flee, leaving their homes and properties vulnerable to aggression and its tools. Those who cannot flee remain potential martyrs or waiting for injury.

June 7, 2019: Cluster Bomb Kills Child and Injures Two in Sana'a

On June 7, 2019, the aggression targeted a village in Hayma District, Sana'a, with internationally banned cluster bombs.

The cluster bomb attack resulted in the death of one child and injuries to two others, causing fear and panic among citizens, worrying about their lives and their children's lives due to the colorful, attractive cluster bombs that silently and slowly kill civilians. These bombs remain a lasting threat in their mountains, farms, near their homes, among the soil, trees, and their surroundings.

The cluster bomb crime in Hayma is one of thousands of repeated crimes in Yemeni provinces, especially border areas, due to the variety of airstrikes and the loss of many lives of women, children, farmers, workers, and travelers over nine years.

Cluster bombs are a method of the aggression to temporarily kill the Yemeni people, draining their lives and spilling their blood, planting death beneath their feet.
