UK seeks Saudi cluster bomb assurances over Yemen

The UK government has sought fresh assurances from Saudi Arabia that British-made cluster bombs have not been used in the conflict in Yemen.

Amnesty International said it had documented the use of the weapons, manufactured in the 1970s.
Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond told MPs there was currently no evidence Saudi Arabia had used cluster bombs.
Mr Hammond said the weapons described were decades old and it was now illegal to supply such bombs under British law.
Answering an urgent question in the Commons, defence minister Philip Dunne said the UK had ratified the Convention on Cluster Munitions in 2010 and no longer supplied, manufactured or supported them.
He said there had been several conflicts in that region in the past decade so it was not clear that the evidence found had come from the current fighting.
Shadow defence secretary Emily Thornberry asked whether the Saudi military had used British planes to drop cluster bombs and what was the extent of British involvement in the conflict.
Mr Dunne replied: "I can categorically reassure [you] that no British planes have been involved in this coalition effort at all, let alone in dropping cluster munitions - that is the potential allegation. There is no British involvement in the coalition in targeting or weaponising aircraft to undertake missions."

'Nasty weapon'

Amnesty has written to Prime Minister David Cameron calling for a government inquiry into the allegations.
The human rights group claimed it found a partially-exploded BL-755 cluster bomb which had apparently malfunctioned, leaving scores of unexploded bomblets strewn over a wide area near a farm in Al-khadhra village, six miles from the Saudi border.
Amnesty said the bomb was originally manufactured by Bedfordshire company Hunting Engineering Ltd in the 1970s.
Amnesty International UK arms control director Oliver Sprague said: "Cluster bombs are one of the nastiest weapons in the history of warfare, rightly banned by more than 100 countries, so it's truly shocking that a British cluster munition has been dropped on a civilian area in Yemen."

Cluster bombs explained

  • The Convention on Cluster Munitions prohibits all use, stockpiling, production and transfer of cluster bombs
  • The convention has 108 signatories and became binding international law in 2010
  • Cluster bombs pose particular risks to civilians because they release many small bomblets over a wide area
  • During attacks, they are prone to indiscriminate effects especially in populated areas
  • Unexploded bomblets can kill or maim civilians long after a conflict has ended, and are costly to locate and remove

A Saudi-led coalition of Arab air forces began carrying out airstrikes against Houthi rebels in Yemen last year.
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights estimates that at least 3,200 civilians have been killed and 5,700 wounded, with 60% of the casualties caused by airstrikes, in that time.
The conflict between President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi's UN-recognised government and the rebels began in September 2014

Saudi-led warplanes hit 'jewel' of Islamic culture in Sanaa

6/14/2015 0
Saudi-led warplanes hit 'jewel' of Islamic culture in Sanaa - See more at: has condemned the destruction of part of the Old City of Sanaa in Yemen by a Saudi airstrike.
The strike on Friday killed five people and destroyed three houses, laying waste to much of the World Heritage Site.


       Explosion in Old City of Sana

 Locals said it marked the first direct hit on old Sanaa since the Saudi-led coalition began their bombing campaign against Houthi militias in Yemen in late March.
AFP reported that the airstrike hit the Qassimi neighbourhood, which contains thousands of houses built before the 11th century.
"For sure we did not conduct any operation inside (the) city," Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri, the coalition spokesman, told AFP.
"Several days before they [Houthis] had an explosion in one of their storage" areas, he said. "So it could be one of these."
UNESCO on Friday expressed its alarm at the scale of the destruction.
“I am profoundly distressed by the loss of human lives as well as by the damage inflicted on one of the world’s oldest jewels of Islamic urban landscape,” said UNESCO’s director general, Irina Bokova.

“I am shocked by the images of these magnificent many-storeyed tower-houses and serene gardens reduced to rubble. This destruction will only exacerbate the humanitarian situation and I reiterate my call to all parties to respect and protect cultural heritage in Yemen. This heritage bears the soul of the Yemeni people, it is a symbol of a millennial history of knowledge and it belongs to all humankind.”
The Saudi-led coalition has stated its desire to see exiled former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi restored to power in Yemen and undermine what they see as Iranian-backed instability in the country.
The destruction wreaked upon the Old City of Sanaa, however, marks just the latest piece of Yemen's historical antiquities to be damaged in the fighting, coming less than two weeks after the Dhamar Regional Museum in the Hirran province of Yemen's Dhamar district was "completely destroyed" by Saudi airstrikes, according to the Khabar News Agency.
Writing for al-Araby al-Jadeed, journalist Abubakr al-Shamahi lamented the level of damage caused to Yemen’s ancient heritage by the Saudi-led bombing campaign.
“Dar al-Hajar, the rock palace that lies in a valley just outside Sanaa, was almost hit by missiles last week,” he wrote. “The Marib Dam, on the site of what locals say is the world's first ever dam, has been hit. The archaeological sites of the ancient civilisation that dam allowed to prosper, Sheba, have barely been uncovered from the sands. Yet even they have not escaped, with the Temple of Sheba, one of Yemen's national symbols, caught in the crossfire during the fighting in the area.
“Of course, the lives of the thousands killed in Yemen's war are more important. But I, and many other Yemenis, feel a deep sense of pain when we see the destruction of our heritage, places that we want to share with the world."

Saudis Have Israel Nuke Yemen for Them

pictures and video has been send to me form my country  Yemen there token by my big brother and that site how saudia keep booming its full of citizens human life there be keeled every day by the big fucken muslm fucken kingdom

thanks for watching yemenia bababys women old people everything

Neutron bomb dropped by IAF plane with Saudi markings...

Its either a very large MOAB bigger than 4,000 lbs. or; ???? Max weight for an F-15 / 16 is about 2,000 lb payload per bomb rack making the deployment of a MOAB impossible.

C. Its appears to be a small neutron bomb. The size, color, lightning effect and duration of the fire ball being suspended in mid air and the very large mushroom cloud is the main give away. The CCD cameras imaging device was “scintillating” (detecting Neutrons) That is the white pixel flashes in the video. When the photo has white pixel flashes in it, that is because it is being hit by neutrons from the nuclear fireball blast. It overloads the ccd’s electronic circuit producing white flashes.

If the radiation is too high it will burn out the chip. They have big problems with this in Japan with the Fukushima robots cameras failing due to very high radiation counts.

D. Delivery is most likely by an IDF F-16 with a Saudi paint job on the plane. They are not even hiding their use anymore, they just don’t publicly admit it and the IAEA does nothing or says nothing. That is the true war crime. The UN just ignores it unless the US, France or GB complains…….. Russia and China say nothing.

E. This is now the second known use of nukes in Yemen by Saudi Arabia…………..

Post Script:

A. The range of the camera is calculated to be about 4 to 5 miles from ground zero based on shock wave timing.

B.Saudi has no F-16’s. The aircraft reported to be used to droop the bomb in Yemen were F-16’s. Photos and acoustic signature confirms that the jet engines noise is from a single engine jet fighter of the F-16 type.

ترجمة.. مصادر أمريكية: طائرات إسرائيلية قصفت جبل نقم في عاصمة اليمن 

بأسلحة محرمة

ترجمة خاصة لـ"خبر" للأنباء - ليلى جمال:
غوردون دوف هو محارب مخضرم في البحرية الأمريكية وشارك في حرب فيتنام، وهو دبلوماسي معتمد ومقبول باعتباره واحدا من كبار خبراء الاستخبارات العالمية وخبراء الاسلحة النووية. ويدير أكبر منظمة في الاستخبارات الخاصة في العالم وكما يعمل استشاري لدى بعض الحكومات بخصوص القضايا الأمنية.

نشر هذا الخبير تقريراً على موقع Veterans Today مزوداً بالادلة العلمية حول القنبلة التي التي سقطت على جبل نقم الاسبوع الماضي.

وأكد الخبير غوردون دوف، استخدام سلاح نيوتروني على جبل نقم.
وقال غوردون دوف، إن طائرة اسرائيلية مطلية بالوان سلاح الجو السعودي هي من القت بالقنبلة النيوترونية.

وأشار الخبير دوف أن القنبلة ليست تقليدية - 2 رطل - بل هي أكبر بكثير .

وأضاف أن حجم الانفجار يفترض ان يكون ناتج عن قنبلة تقليدية وزن 4 الاف رطل، لكن هذا وزن زائد عن قدرة 16 الف رطل، وعليه الاحتمال المؤكد انها قنبلة نيوترونية مصغرة بالنظر الى قوة الانفجار ومدته وشكله الذي يشبه الفطر بالاضافة الى ان الفيديو اظهر ومضات صغيرة بيضاء تدل على اصطدام نيوترونات بشاشة التصوير ولكنها لاتحتوي اشعاعات كبيرة والا كانت عدسة التصوير ستحترق.

ونشر موقع Veterans Today فيديو انفجار القنبلة النيوترونية التي أسقطتها طائرة سلاح الجو الإسرائيلي على جبل نقم، وقال الموقع، إن الفيديو بتاريخ 20 مايو 2015.

وقال إنه من خلال عرض الفيديو من خلال كاميرا متخصصة، كشفت عن وجود نيوترونات في القنبلة التي أسقطت.

وتعتبر القنبلة هذه هي الثانية النووية التي تسقطها السعودية على اليمن - حد قوله

Noam Chomsky: Yemen is the most extraordinary global terrorism campaign in history

Saudi-led air strikes continue in Yemen, one ground force member killed

Eighteen out of Yemen's 22 governorates have been attacked by the Saudi-led alliance since the war on Yemen began on March 26, says the United Nations. The trail of destruction has left hundreds of people dead, thousands wounded and a nation of 24 million people living in poverty, horror and the lack of basic life essentials.

Although Operation Decisive Storm airstrikes are intended to bomb military facilities and weapon depots to quell the Houthi rebels supported by ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh, the strikes have resulted in a lot of death, displacement and destruction across the country. Despite the massive number of strikes over the past three weeks, the Houthi/Saleh brutal aggression has spread to the south and intensified, particularly in Aden, killing many civilians and destroying residential neighbourhoods as well.

Backed by its Gulf Arab allies, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Sudan and Saudi Arabia launched an airstrike operation against Houthi fighters who took control of Yemen in January. The effort is also being supported by the US, which is providing its Saudi partner with intelligence and logistical support.

The United Nations estimates that around 150,000 people have been displaced, and the World Health Organisation, citing Yemeni Health Ministry sources, reports 767 people had been killed and more than 2,900 wounded in less than a month.

The latest report published by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian gives an overview of the infrastructure that has been destroyed, damaged and disrupted as a result of the fighting.

Those stuck at home have no fuel, cooking gas or water. Food is scarce, and electricity is non-existent.
