On Friday, António Guterres Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) said that the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthis are responsible for most of war crimes against children in Yemen. Guterres added the both sides to the UN’s Yemen war black list.

According to Guterres report, the military operations of the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthis killed or injured 1100 Yemeni child in 2016. Guterres said that the Houthis are responsible for killing or injuring 414 children, while the Saudi-led coalition is responsible for killing or injuring 683 Yemeni children mainly with airstrikes.

Guterres added that the Saudi-led coalition was responsible for 73% attacks on hospitals and schools in Yemen in 2016.

Guterres revealed that the UN and Saudi Arabia are in a dialog to improve the security majors for children in Yemen. However, Guterres didn’t talk about any similar steps with the Houthis.

Only hours after the UN report, US official told Reuters news agency that the US lifted its economic sanctions against Sudan, the third biggest force in the Saudi-led coalition. Sudanese troops have been a spearhead of the Saudi-led coalition attacks in Yemen for two years now.

The US official said the US decision to left the sanctions was due to “progress on counter-terrorism and improvement on human rights” in Sudan. It’s not known yet if the US took into account the acts of Sudanese troops in Yemen when it made its decision to left the sanctions.

    Senor Guterres and his UN are as impotent as the League of Nations in the 1930s or a dead worm on an angler’s hook. While he and his underling bureaucrats collect their princely salaries, people all over this world are being massacred like insects due to their lack of defenses and the endless verbal sewage, ineptitude and cowardice from this organization. The UN will never take any meaningful action against the US/NATO/EU/Zionist led murderers and their acolytes.

      A dog rarely bites its’ master…especially one who feeds them regularly.

    Why not Russia. They are doing the same things? What gives? Are criminals now different

    • zman

      Probably because the Russians actually use restraint and actually kill few civilians. Unlike the US who indiscriminately slaughter civilians on a SOP basis. How many did the US kill in Raqqah alone in one week? Nearly 500. It’s doubtful the Russians killed that many in all the time they’ve been in Syria. But you know all this, this is just more of your desire to earn a pat on the head from your masters. The US caused the deaths of how many deaths of Iraqi children through their illegal sanctions? 576,000. But that must be OK, because Madelin Albreight said it was worth it. No one listens to your BS and believes it because we all know what a shill you are. You must be worried because of all the new trolls…don’t fret, they’re just here to pile on the BS, not take your job.

    And houthis are responsible for what? For their fight against the saudi invasion? Defending their country? Oh yes, they are very guilty!

    • Solomon Krupacek

      responsible for childen killed by them

      • Ishyrion Av

        All those children are killed by your people. That includes you, modern Solomon which you have nothing in common with the King Solomon.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          my people sure not

    Houthis are responsible ,because they don’t catch the bombs the Saudi’s and Americans are dropping on their children . If they caught the bombs before they hit , they and their children would be safe .

  • zman

    What a load of manure. As if the Houthis could even come anywhere near the butchery of KSA. This is just to appease the Sauds, the new member of the UN Human Rights commission…which is a crime in itself and very illuminating as to who owns who. The same with the US lifting sanctions on Sudan, now that they are playing ball and sending cannon fodder for the Houthis to destroy…which they are.

    Against children…’cause murdering innocent youngs/adults/olds/women is acceptable according to the UN.

      Wait until they Kill a Transgender Gender Fluid “Thing” then the Shit hits the Fan. Oh boy Obama would Drop his Nobel Price for Pushing the Red Button for Nuclear Rockets Against the Houtis who Shot the Rockets out of a F 15 who was Flying from Saudi Arabia to hit This Poor Colored Transgender Gender Fluid Freedom Loving Democrat.

  • goingbrokes

    So Houthis too are apparently responsible! How exactly are Houthis responsible for KSA+allies attacking their country? More UN travesty.
