Is there any injustice taking place around the world? Iraq ring a bell? if so, how much injustice? Any war crimes? Who is to blame? What can we, the youths do about it? This is the place to dissect the truth, and rant on about politics.

Yemen army kills 140 Shias during ceasefire

The army has reportedly killed more than 140 Houthis in northern Yemen after declaring a temporary ceasefire on the Shia fighters.

"So far more than 140 bodies have been found," a military official told AFP after a Sunday military operation in the northern city of Saada in response to reported attacks by the fighters.

The army launched a crackdown on the Houthis on August 11 which, according to the Houthi resistance, has largely targeted civilian areas and refugee camps.

The Yemeni Army said on Friday that it would suspend the attacks in the northern provinces of Saada and Amran for the holiday of Eid ul-Fitr, which marks the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. The cessation was expected to last for three days..

The Zaidi Shia fighters announced yesterday that the government had violated the ceasefire by advancing toward the city of Harf Sufyan in Amran.

"We were hoping for the government to prove their sincerity by ceasing all fire," read a statement issued by the office of Abdel Malek al-Houthi, the leader of the fighters. Despite the violation, fighters "will continue to be committed to peace in the area," it added.

Sana'a had demanded, among other things, that the Zaidis pull out of all districts of Saada and mountainous sites and return the weapons they had seized from the army in order for the ceasefire to enter its 'permanent phase.'

The government reportedly agreed to the ceasefire to appease aid agencies, outraged by the displacement of over 50,000 civilians by the offensives.

The Saudi goverment and the Zionist regimes are highly supporting the Yemeni goverment in massacaring the Shias of Yemen who have a great majority and history in Yemen.
