The horrific massacre in Yemen’s Hajjah is clear violation of international law, The American Conservative says.

SANAA, April 24 (YPA) – The American Conservative magazine condemned the horrific massacre committed by the Saudi-led coalition in Alraqah area of Bani Qais district n Hajjah province, that left 88 people killed and wounded.

This comes in an article for the writer “DANIEL LARISON” and was published in “The American Conservative Magazine”.

Daniel Larison said that “there is no excuse for blowing up a wedding party. There is clearly no military purpose served by attacking these people, and most of the dead and wounded are women and children.”

“This is a clear violation of international law, and unfortunately it is just one of the thousands like it over the last three years,” Larison added.

He indicated that the Saudi coalition keeps carrying out these attacks with no regard for the lives of civilians, and our government continues to arm and refuel their planes as they do it. The Saudis and their allies know they can act with complete impunity because the U.S. keeps providing military assistance and diplomatic cover no matter what they do to Yemeni civilians.

“Our State Department won’t even report on the war crimes that they commit, Daniel Larison said, adding instead of being treated as the war criminal that he is during his visit to the U.S., Mohammed bin Salman was feted and embraced by our government, given mostly fawning media coverage, and welcomed by the biggest names in entertainment and business.

He confirmed that the murders of these Yemeni women and children and thousands more like them are his doing, and the U.S. is responsible for enabling him and his allies to do it.

The idea that U.S. support is reducing the number of civilian casualties is impossible to take seriously when it seems undeniable that many of the coalition’s attacks on civilians are done on purpose.

After three years of bombing and starving Yemen, the coalition is no closer to any of its stated goals, but it has succeeded in raining death and destruction on numerous weddings, funerals, medical clinics, markets, treatment plants, farms, schools, and homes.

This is what happens when at least 30% of all coalition strikes hit civilian targets. Providing arms and refueling to the Saudi coalition guarantees that more Yemeni civilians will be killed in this way. For their sake, it is imperative that the U.S. halt its support for this war at once.
