Saudi Air-force Crashes Yemeni Wedding – 131 Dead

131 dead in alleged Saudi airstrike on Yemen wedding

The death toll from an alleged air strike on a Yemeni wedding soared Tuesday to 131, including women and children, as the Saudi-led coalition denied it was behind the incident.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon condemned Monday’s reported bombardment, saying intentional attacks on civilians were considered a “serious violation of international humanitarian law”.

Residents said the Arab coalition, which launched an air war on the Huthi Shiite rebels in late March, was behind the attack on the wedding in Wahijah village near the Red Sea city of Mokha.

    I always wonder about these stories.
    Was this an al Queda or ISIS wedding?
    If so, then good shooting!

      Or is it that every time the US (and now the Saudis) blow up a group of terrorists, they claim it was “just a wedding”?

        I STRONGLY suspect that is what exactly what the case is.

    2 words… Dresden & Tokyo

    • UN chief Ban Ki-moon is a fool.

      “International humanitarian law” is fiction.

      War is hell.

      The winner writes the rules.

      Dresden & Tokyo – necessary steps to winning.

      Don’t start a war you will loose.

      Liberals and Utopians like to whine about reality.

    that is only a few more than average killed at a sand apes wedding through victorious gun fire, why is this news?

  • Everyone Else

    I heard the Saudis were after one of they main people at the wedding, and maybe the whole clan was on their radar.

    The Saudis are hurriedly searching for any way they can pin this on Israel and the IDF.

    Shit happens.

    the New York Times no doubt has already blamed the Jews.
