24 Civilians, Including Children, Killed In Yemen By US-Backed Saudi/UAE Airstrikes With US-Made Bombs

Reports coming in from Hussain Albukhaiti on the ground in Yemen are confirming that 21 civilian lives have been taken due to a US-backed airstrike on Okra Okro farm in Beit al-Faqih, East Hodeida, and 3 more civilians including a child were killed with a US-made MK 82 bomb in Hodeida City.

While the majority of the US is distracted by political maneuvering for the upcoming mid-terms, be that the caravan psyop, or today’s pipe bomb events (that many strongly feel have all the hallmarks of a false flag), American tax dollars are being spent to carry out atrocities with frightening regularity. These horrors being committed against innocent civilians, who just happen to occupy a nation that has fallen under the crosshairs of the US war machine, are disgustingly done so in the name of “freedom,” the very thing they are out to destroy.

One man, Hussain Albukhaiti, who was responsible for breaking the original story that exposed the US-made MK-82 bomb that took the lives of 40 children in one of many previous US-backed bus bombings in Yemen, has continued to risk his life to allow us a glimpse of the true nature of this US-led war on a the most impoverished nation in the world.

Under the cover of bomb threats and political grandstanding in Washington, the US-backed Saudi coalition has bombed a vegetable market and a location in Beit al-Faqih where farmers in Yemen bring their harvest to be washed.

We have repeatedly demonstrated how civilian infrastructure is being deliberately targeted in order to inflict the highest amount of suffering on the already starving and war-torn nation, this includes continuing to eliminate what little food stuffs and resources are left to them; what little remains due to the ongoing Saudi blockade that is slowly starving the entire country of Yemen to death.

It is also being reported that this was yet again what the Saudis call a “double tap” wherein they hit a target, and then intentionally wait for medics and rescue workers in order to swing back and hit those seeking to aid the injured — which should go without saying that it is an egregious and flagrant war crime to target civilian aid workers.

In addition to this vegetable market and farm being targeted, Hussain has also reported that 3 more civilians and one child has been killed in Hodeida city with yet another US-made MK-82 bomb, manufactured by Lockheed Martin.

What is truly frightening is the ability of the American people to ignore such obvious and numerous crimes against humanity being carried out with the direct and integral support of its government, while crying foul against the very same authoritarian government for the killing of one man; and then be so easily cowed away from both stories by the fraudulent mainstream media, as if they never occurred, due to some scare tactics and political manipulations.

One would think the American people would have woken up to the true nature of their government long ago, as we continue around in this never-ending left-right carousel of false promises and manipulations, never to see any real change other than in the benefit of the worst among us. Yet as many indeed begin to see the truth behind these action, far too many still blindly follow the very same groups that got us here to begin with.
