Warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition carried out a series of airstrikes on the Yemeni capital of Sanaa in the early hours of May 16.

The Saudi-led coalition claimed in an official statement published by the al-Arabiya TV that the airstrikes targeted “legitimate military targets,” including bases, workshops and ammo depots of the Houthis. The coalition even hinted that the airstrikes were a response to the recent drone attack on Saudi oil facilities.

“What the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militias have done by attacking strategic facilities in the Kingdom is a major violation of the international, humanitarian law … Whish raise to the level of war crimes,” the coalition’s statement reads.

The coalition claimed that its airstrikes were carried out “in accordance with international humanitarian law.” However, Yemeni sources revealed that the airstrikes targeted heavily populated areas in Sanaa.

According to al-Masirah TV, 6 civilians were killed and 72 others were injured as a result of Saudi-led coalition airstrikes. Two of the injured civilians Shuk al-Nuaimi and her sister Oksana al-Nuaimi were identified as Russian citizens.

Mohamad Abd al-Salam, head of the Houthis delegation to the Yemen peace talks, condemned the aerial attack, calling it “an example of military and political failure” of the Saudi-led coalition.

“The standards that the world deals with the situation in Yemen with are animalic and barbaric standards, not humanitarian … We are not waiting for the standards of a world governed by the policy of selling and buying,” Abd al-Salam said in a phone call with al-Masirah.

The high number of casualties in Sanaa will likely further complicate the situation in Yemen for the Saudi-led coalition and its main backer, the U.S., which has not commented on the new airstrikes, so far.

    Oksana sounds more like Ukrainian name. But everything is possible.

    • You can call me Al

      What, just like this I quickly googled – “The name Oksana is a girl’s name of Russian, Ukranian origin meaning “praise to God”. Oksana and is often added to lists like Names That Mean Honor and discussed in our forums with posts like “Quick Question Thread?!”. From the experts: Ukrainian figure-skating champion Oksana Baiul made it known here.”

      • Harry Smith

        Yep, you are right. Oksana (Oxana) is used by Russians and Ukrainians, but Ukrainians name their girls with this name much more often. And most of Oxana I’ve met in Russia, had both parents, or one parent Ukrainian origin. Just my personal observations.

  • klove and light

    no surprise what so ever…….. Evil satanic …..welcome to the jewish “spirit”…….and again for my brave houthi Brothers i will repeat their Slogan

    “God is the Greatest, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse on the Jews, Victory to Islam”

    • occupybacon

      They would have more international coverage without that slogan.

      • d’Artagnan

        It is a truthful slogan and getting very popular around the world, even in Europe :)

        • occupybacon

          Yeah, like Russia’s anthem would be death to America, NATO and the West.

      • HardHawk

        xm…… to your opinion they need international coverage for what exactly? and from whom the ones they bomb them and attacked their country?

        • occupybacon

          Coverage for their bravery and being blindly bombed by a coalition of extremists.

          • HardHawk

            I am sure who ever is interested in what is happening around the world knows.

          • occupybacon

            Those chants makes the main stream media banning the images.

    • d’Artagnan

      US war criminals have just killed 17 Afghan policemen:

      Afghanistan: US Airstrike kills 17 policemen by ‘mistake’

  • occupybacon

    If there was not the US, Houthi would have conquered the entire Arabian peninsula by now

    • You can call me Al

      The above mass murder have just added thousands into the Houthis ranks.

      • occupybacon

        One of the things I like at them is that they rely more on precision and surprise than numbers. Hordes would be easy to hit from the air.

        • Joe Kerr

          Only if they don’t have an effective AD and ability to reply, hence the reluctance to hit Iran. As for your idea of precision, the photos show how precise the hits from the scumbags were. That you “like at them” puts you in the same basket of filth.

          • occupybacon

            What are you even talking about?

      • d’Artagnan

        Yemenis thrive on revenge and you are 100% correct, a lot of family members and tribal relations will now join the Ansarallah. The Zionist criminals made the same mistake in South Lebanon by killing and humiliating Shia civilians like they do with unarmed Palestinians, big mistake, as by 1984 both AMAL and Hezbollah had merged and brought havoc on Zionist occupation forces around Tyre and Sidon. The first Hezbollah suicide bomber was a 15 year kid whose family had been killed in a Zionist airstrike and he blew up their whole HQ killing a hundred Zionists or more. The same fate awaits the Saudis.

        • You can call me Al

          They never seem to learn either.

          Keep the faith, we all need it now.

      • goingbrokes

        Yes, anyone sitting on a fence will find it easier to make up their minds by the day.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Both Turkey and Saudi Arabia freely bomb Russian citizens around the world. And Russia rewards them.
    This is an embarrassment to Russians everywhere.

    • Nowruz

      I don’t believe Russia is going to start a direct war against KSA and Turkey because of a few deaths or injuries. Casualties and injures are the risks you take when you’re in a war torn area, i.e Yemen, Syria, Venezuela, Libya, etc. Russia is protecting the people of DPR and LPR and let’s not forget what happened to Georgia when they where ethically cleansing Russian citizens. I do hope that Russia will assist the Houthis in supplying weapons and possibly send over some humanitarian aid. Saudi Arabia will not attack Russia directly just like Turkey.

  • Rob

    What we can expect from American, Israelis and Saudi child butchers. God have created these Satans for this day.

    • d’Artagnan

      This is a typical US and Zionist tactic of sheer cowardice and disregard for humanity. The Saudi cowards are losing badly and the only think they can do is to indiscriminately kill unarmed and starving women and children of Yemen. It is time for Russia to start arming the long allied Yemeni military and Ansarallah, as some Russians were killed in this disgusting airstrike on a civilian residential area. The Ansarallah need to take out Saudi water desalination plants, airports and infrastructure.

  • Joe Kerr

    No surprise to not see these photos on western MSM, where fake “news” about Venezuela has run out of steam.

  • John

    No words needed, the photos say it all.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Killing Yemeni civilians by Saudi Arabia and USA is not raised as violation of humanitarian crisis and law.But any attack on Saudi Arabia oil which is USANato interest is only violation of humanitarian law is rubbished and bullshit. Any threat against non USA NATO country must caused sabotage on USA NATO oil receiving countries.Disrupt Saudi oil supplies and bomb oil depots Saudi Arabia and UAE. As long as USA NATO interferes and threatened destroy Saudi oil facilities.Disrupt oil supply make impossible for puppets to know USA NATO is the threat to good business. Let the sheiks and mullahs run to the caves to be kidnapped and rape by ISIS rapefugees.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Russians were killed but Putin will only warn Yemen not to provoke Saudi because he wants to sell S-400 to his bosses.

  • Xoli Xoli
