Yemen: Thousands rally after rape of Yemeni girl by Saudi-coalition soldier

Yemen, Sanaa
April 2, 2018 at 17:58 GMT -00:00 · Published

Thousands of women and children gathered in Sanaa on Monday, to show their anger against the Saudi-Arabian-led coalition, following the raping of a Yemeni girl by a soldier of the Saudi Arabian-led coalition.

Organised by the local women's authority, the protest took place in Bab-al-Yemen in the country’s capital.

Several non-governmental organisations in Yemen confirmed on Sunday, the raping a Yemeni girl by a coalition's mercenary soldier in the Yemeni Red Sea district of Khokah.

The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in 2015 as an attempt to crush Houthi rebels in the region and reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. The conflict has created a dire humanitarian situation in the country.

The Saudi-led bombing campaign, now in its third year, continues in Yemen with US backing, with casualty figures exceeding 16,200 people since the beginning of the war in March 2015. A reported 40,000 have been injured and more than three million people have been displaced.

According to a UNICEF report released earlier this year, over 5,000 children have been killed or injured in the conflict.

Miles de mujeres y niños se reunieron en Sana el lunes para mostrar su ira contra la coalición dirigida por Arabia Saudita, tras la violación de una niña yemení.

La manifestación fue organizada por la autoridad local de mujeres, y tuvo lugar en Bab-al-Yemen, en la capital del país.

Varias organizaciones no gubernamentales en Yemen confirmaron el domingo que un soldado de la coalición de Arabia Saudita en el distrito yemení del Mar Rojo de Khokah había violado a una niña.

La guerra liderada por Arabia Saudita en Yemen comenzó en 2015 en un intento por aplastar a los rebeldes Houthi en la región y reinstalar al ex presidente Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. El conflicto ha creado una grave situación humanitaria en el país.

La campaña de bombardeos liderada por Arabia Saudita, ahora en su tercer año, continúa en Yemen con el respaldo de Estados Unidos, con cifras de víctimas que superan las 16.200 personas desde el comienzo de la guerra en marzo de 2015. Unos 40.000 han resultado heridos y más de tres millones han sido desplazados.

Según un informe de UNICEF publicado a principios de este año, más de 5.000 niños han muerto o han resultado heridos en el conflicto.
