The Saudis have been having all kinds of problems with their coalition in Yemen.
So as these things go, it’s always a good idea if you’re having coalition problems to commit a crazy massacre – like, say, bombing a prison.
More than 100 people have died in Yemen after the Saudi-led coalition launched a series of air strikes on a detention centre, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
The ICRC said that at least 40 survivors were being treated after the attack on Sunday in the city of Dhamar.
Local residents reported hearing six air strikes during the night.
The Saudi-led coalition, which backs Yemen’s government, said its attack destroyed a drone and missile site.
The Iran-aligned Houthi rebel movement, which is fighting in opposition to the government and Saudi-led coalition, said the strikes had hit a facility it was using as a prison. The ICRC said it had visited detainees at the location before.
Franz Rauchenstein, the head of delegation for the ICRC in Yemen, said the organisation was collecting bodies from the site and described the chances of finding more survivors as “very low”.
Yemen has been at war since 2015, when President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi and his cabinet were forced to flee the capital Sanaa by the Houthis. Saudi Arabia backs President Hadi, and has led a coalition of regional countries in air strikes against the rebels.
More than 70,000 people are believed to have died since 2016 as a result of the conflict, according to UN estimates.
That’s thousands of times more people killed than died in Hitler’s gas chambers.
If you don’t know what this war is, well, the short story is that it’s a proxy war with Iran.
Yemen is a majority Shiite country bordering Saudi Arabia, and the Saudis are pretty much just slaughtering people as a kind of purposeful public atrocity in order to demoralize their enemies.
Bombing a prison is a gross act.
Niggas can’t even run away.
Saudis are a disgusting, filthy race. And friends with the filthiest.
