Saudi warplanes attacked a bottling camp in the Hajjah Province of northern Yemen today, killing 36 workers at the factory, who were identified as civilians by local residents. This was the latest in a long line of huge civilian tolls in the Saudi war.
While Saudi officials usually shrug off the huge death tolls of their war, today they felt the need to deny that the death toll was wholly civilian, claiming the factory was a “bomb-making facility” and that 17 of the 36 people they killed were Houthis, with the rest civilian workers.
Oddly ,the Saudi statement claimed also that the plant was next door to a rebel training facility, and that the Houthis killed were at the training ground, and not the bottling plant. Though locals confirmed Houthi sites in the area were targeted, they affirmed the 36 civilian toll.
Saudi warplanes have been bombing targets across Yemen since March, demanding the re-installation of former President Hadi, who resigned in January. Hadi is in exile in Saudi Arabia, and insists he is still the rightful government of Yemen.

Saudi Arabien regime, as Israel have, creating the same situation for Yemeni people as Israel have for Palestinians in gaza. The militarization of the world by the Neo fascism regimes, the European, the Japanese and etc is the main idea where U.S. Imperial is at work creating a situation for yet another world war, this time Saudis, Wahhabis, salafis, Israel and all other state, privet or business sponsored terrorism are welcomed.
Let's face it, people. Saudi Arabia is a case of the inmates running the asylum. They are little more than animals, rabid animals at that. The civilized world needs to send in the exterminators to clean out these cockroaches.
