Human rights defenders: Arab coalition planes dropped cluster bombs on Sana'a

61
Aviation led by the Saudi Arab coalition on Wednesday struck the capital of Yemen, using cluster munitions, reports RIA News message to the Human Rights Watch organization.




“Coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia yesterday morning (Wednesday) dropped cluster bombs on residential areas of the Yemeni capital of Sana'a. At the moment, it is not clear whether civilians have suffered as a result of attacks, but deliberate and reckless use of cluster munitions in populated areas amounts to a war crime ”,
Human rights activists reported.

In addition, an air strike was inflicted on the Iranian embassy located in Sana'a; there are casualties.

In a statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry, which cites Reuters, in particular, states: "Saudi Arabia is liable for damage caused to the embassy building and for injuries sustained by some employees."

        In Donbass, dill could use nuclear weapons if they had one, and no one from these "respected" organizations would see anything. The maximum would be expressed "concern over the information that has emerged about the use of weapons of mass destruction by the parties to the conflict." It's good that at one time, the Ukrainians took away nuclear weapons - with the current inadequate leadership, they would not hesitate to use such weapons in the ATO. Well, and blame Russia for this, of course ..

          Personally, I think that the one who sponsors someone dances him. Therefore, the OSCE acts as its creators order to advance their interests. And they will evaluate what is happening as they are ordered, and not as they really are.
          And for monitoring in the Donbass, it was necessary to create a commission at the UN from disinterested persons (some kind of Africans and (or) Latinos). And so it will continue to work out - I want to see, but I want and I do not see ...

Have they gathered at the UN to play cards or other games, and put the lives, health and well-being of their citizens on the line? Or, after all, these are the UNITED NATIONS PARTICIPANTS, and then they should have an approach to solving all kinds of problems like countries, and not like cynical players. It seems to me that when the approach to definitions changes, then the approach to solving international problems will also change.

        The UN has been stubbornly and persistently trying recently to repeat the fate of the League of Nations, which at the end became a worthless office and quietly rested in a Bose. International law is practically not being fulfilled by anyone. There are many examples.

      Russia has not signed the “Cluster Munitions Treaty”. Not only, however, Russia. So Russia can use such bombs. It seems that the cluster bombs RBK-500 SPBE-D (anti-tank), RBK-500 SHOAB-0,5 (fragmentation) and RBK-500 AO-2,5RTM (fragmentation) were lit up at the Khmeimim air base.

      The Saudis are ordinary "children of the desert", whom fate has given a chance to mow green tugriks due to the dependence of the world's population on oil due to the backwardness of scientific and technological progress (the inability or unwillingness to invent movers based on other principles of work). That is why such states arise where money conditions allow life to be strong, BUT moral justification and traditions remained at the level of the Middle Ages. repeat
      If they did not have oil, no one would stand on ceremony with the Saudis, and so the Western "partners" almost lick their heels at meetings, and this situation leads to the fact that they become unnecessarily arrogant and arrogant, which is reflected not only in unwillingness change the internal foundations, but also in foreign policy, when such comrades, thinking that they are the navels of the Earth, make one mistake after another ...

      Do you want to advise the Russian President ?!

      Remember me, otherwise I forgot a little. What kind of agreements have Russia signed with Saudi Arabia lately? Like in November 2015, "Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to sign the largest treaty of international relations in history.
      According to various reports, the deal may reach $ 10 billion. Under the agreed contract, a wide military-technical arsenal will be supplied to the Middle East country, including the Iskander tactical missile systems. "

      And more:
      "28.12.15/17/46 (XNUMX:XNUMX)
      Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry on information in individual media about the alleged disruption of a number of visits by Russian representatives to Saudi Arabia in connection with the liquidation of the leader of the Jaish al-Islam group.

      Allegations have appeared in a number of media that, allegedly due to the liquidation of the leader of the Jaish al-Islam extremist group Z.Allush near Damascus on December 25 and about 20 other field commanders of this illegal armed group, the visits of several Russian delegations to Saudi Arabia were canceled.

      This information is not true. All previously planned trips by the Russian side to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia took place. With Riyadh, we are engaged in an active dialogue on the whole range of problems of resolving the crisis in Syria.

      At the same time, we can confirm that the special representative of the President of the Russian Federation for the Syrian settlement, Ambassador-at-Large A.L. Lavrentyev is conducting intensive trusting contacts in the region of the Near and Middle East these days. "

    The countries that are the largest manufacturers and owners of cluster munitions - the United States, Russia, China, have not signed the convention. They also refused to accept the treaty: India, Pakistan, Israel, South Korea, who consider them an effective and necessary weapon.
    Actually after that, the Convention on Cluster Munitions can only be wiped off. Well, if the paper is not very hard.

    When these bombs were used in southeastern Ukraine, many UN and OSCE saw ?!


    Yes, they are all dropped off the shelf: "I see here, I don't see here ..." And what is characteristic, they do not see only in one direction, but in the other they see something that did not exist ... Such is the paradox of ophthalmology !

    all their actions are reminiscent of the behavior of a weed - until you rip out the root and grow, and chopping the top of the head is not enough strength.

      And when are Afghan children in 1979-1989, Chechen children during the first and second Chechen wars, Georgian children in 2008? And when the Syrian children, in 2012, from Russian cluster bombs dropped from Assad's planes, on the regions that rebelled against Assad, died: "where were your shameless balls ?!" There, in those areas, too, the tyrant Assad (Poroshenko the fascist) was opposed. Only, it looks like Assad is a friend, and Poroshenko .......? It is not only in the United States that they measure double meters.

        Assad a fascist? well, you also give. ISIS and the opposition suffer from irreconcilability. Kindly give me the information blinkered by the propaganda of the quilted jacket, how many children of Georgia died from the cluster bombs of Russia, for a start. After that, let's see who you are, "world door ball", or an adequate person.

          Will you present me documents that during the Georgian conflict civilians did not die because of the Russian side using Iskander-9K720 missiles with cluster warheads?

        I’m looking for ISIS, Alkaeda (which was called terrorists after the Taliban) and Chechen terrorists who terrorized and terrorize Chechnya is the opposition, well then you and I are not respected along the way.
        But the parashenko who came by the state. coup and began to destroy disagreements (who did not want to leave the composition, but asked for wider autonomy and the right to choose the language in which they speak "democracy"), then this is not the same thing.
        So eat your noodles yourself.

    The OSCE and UN representatives are one-eyed, it is said that they will see it and will not see it, they will come up with it.

    All international organizations see only what the United States indicates.

    Recently I listened to Zadornov, the theme is that those who do not like Jews are called anti-Semites. Those who do not like blacks are called racists. Those who hate the Russians are called HUMAN RIGHTS! I agree to all 100.

    Aviation led by the Saudis Arab coalition on Wednesday struck at the capital of Yemen, using cluster munitions, RIA News reports the organization Human Rights Watch.

    If this message was published in most Western media and there was an adequate reaction in them, then maybe it would be a more effective means of influencing the prohibited methods of warfare than appeals to the UN, OSCE, etc.

    And so - the voice of one crying in the desert.
