US-Supplied Cluster Bombs May Have Been Used To Target Civilians In Yemen

Cluster bombs are banned by 83 nations, but that isn't stopping the US military from selling them to Saudi Arabia.

I have shared this story so many times now it’s getting boring. The USA is funding many sides of this War to make War happen. I look and try to debunk (Make it not true) and I can’t, there is just too much evidence now of the USA with probably England and Israel involved also. I have done a few articles myself HERE <Click) What do we do? Changing the leaders of our Countries won’t matter, Bush and Blair started all this, or whoever is above them started this, same in the USA, anyone that thinks G W Bush could make Global decisions needs a check up from the neck up. These bombs are illegal in most UN Counties, so why are Saudi Arabia shelling Yeman STILL with USA made bombs? I will leave more links at the bottom of the page telling the same story as the article below. Remember this I did? ‘Israeli Air Force Drop Neutron Bomb in Yemen? Saudi Arabia implicated (Video)<Click) The Arab World is and still is telling this story, but should we be surprised that our media in the West is holding back information from us? I think we all or most of us have figured out our Media lie to us about anything, war, life, sport you name it, the Media have an agenda on it.

Human Rights Watch has uncovered strong evidence of the use of internationally banned cluster munitions by Saudi Arabian-led coalition forces in Yemen, and that civilians have been the target in some cases. Visiting the Saada Governate, also known as Ansar Allah, in northern Yemen, HRW discovered a number of civilians had been injured by cluster bombs, including a 10-year-old boy who picked up an unexploded ordnance that he thought was a toy.

Cluster bombs are far from precise in their ability to hit a target, and often leave behind submunitions that fail to detonate on impact, but remain live for decades — creating de facto mines that can maim or kill, spread out over an area the size of a football field. Civilians are most often the victims when they stumble across these unexploded ordnances years after the original bomb was dropped.

A provision in the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions bans the use, production, stockpiling, and transfer of the insidious bombs, and though none of the ten members of the Saudi-

led coalition is party to that agreement, HRW and other nations have implored those responsible to end their use in Yemen. In total, 116 countries have signed the treaty, but the US and Saudi Arabia are not among them. “The Cluster Munition Coalition condemns the use of cluster munitions in Yemen and calls on all parties to ensure no future use,” said Megan Burke, Director of the Cluster Munition Coalition. Ole Solvang, a senior emergencies researcher for HRW, echoed the concern.“The Saudi-led coalition and other warring parties in  Yemen need to recognize that using banned cluster munitions is very likely to harm civilians. These weapons can’t distinguish military targets from civilians, and their unexploded submunitions threaten civilians, especially children, even long after the fighting.”

In one instance, a civilian pointed out items that HRW identified as BLU-108 canisters from the CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapon, manufactured by Textron Systems — supplied by the US to Saudi Arabia and the UAE in recent years. This particular cluster bomb is banned by the Convention, but US policy allows for its export as the submunitions meet reliability standards. Though export policy decrees the receiving country must agree the bombs “will only be used against clearly defined military targets and will not be used where civilians are known to be present or in areas normally inhabited by civilians”, it appears they were used near populated areas in Yemen.

The DOD is conducting an investigation into the reports, and a spokesperson urged all parties to “comply with international humanitarian law, including the obligation to take all feasible measures to minimize harm to civilians.”Plans to discontinue US transfer of such weapons to foreign governments won’t take effect until 2018. One incident of a cluster bomb dropped in an air attack, which injured civilians, clearly originated with Coalition forces, as they are the only party in the conflict using air power.

Belkis Willie, Yemen and Kuwait researcher with HRW, told RT she has serious concerns about what the Coalition is actually targeting: “The problem is the choice of target. We’ve seen multiple instances in which the target that was selected by the Coalition is potentially a violation of the laws of war and really calls into question what process the coalition has for selecting its targets.” As this is not the first report of the use of cluster munitions, it is past due for the US government to take a stand, and demand the Coalition it supports comply with the international humanitarian law which it claims to espouse.

Israeli F16’s Falling from the Skies over Yemen – After Israel drops Nuclear bomb in Yemen

Resident VT aviation expert Jeff Smith of Los Alamos National Labs has provided us with an analysis of this situation

I did this on the 26th May, this happened a week ago today, many Arabic news stations are sharing the story. https://acebreakingnews.wordpress.com/2015/05/26/israeli-air-force-drop-neutron-bomb-in-yemen-saudi-arabia-implicated-video/ That was the original article I did. Sourcing this is VERY DIFFICULT. Thankfully I found a ton of sites that have told this story, sadly none of them are our Main stream media in the West. I can only source so far on my own. None of the big hitters on You Tube or Blogging World have went near this story. So I am at a total loss as to what happened here. If indeed Israel released a Nuclear bomb on Yemen then I can see Israel in a LOT of trouble and this, being a Religious issue will mean the blind leading us all into War. Many in Religious areas of our World are already wanting Iran attacked and Palestine burnt to the ground. THANKFULLY most of t he World don’t. In the name of Religion this will kill us all one day.  For now all we can do is make sense of the senseless

This week two F16s were shot down over Yemen.  When the wreckage was examined, both were found to be of types never supplied to an Arab nation, not Saudi Arabia, not anyone.  The only “buyer” in the region for that type of plane is Israel.

With two Israeli planes downed this week, fresh Saudi markings painted on them, and a strong confirmation of a tactical thermonuclear attack on a Yemeni airbase, a neutron bomb attack (NRR No Residual Radiation), the Yemen war is now clearly an Israeli war.

Yemeni air defense forces shot down a Saudi marked fighter jet in the northwestern province of Sana’a in Yemen as it was conducting airstrikes. This is the second F16 shot down this week – clearly the strength of the Yemeni air defences has been grossly underestimated. The Saudi F-16 fighter jet was shot down and subsequently crashed in the Bayt Khayran area of the district of Bani Harith in the northern part of Sana’a.

On May 11, Yemen’s Al-Masirah television reported that Ansarullah fighters brought down a Moroccan marked fighter jet violating the country’s airspace in the Noshour Valley in the northern province of Sa’ada. The aircraft shot down today had reportedly conducted a number of airstrikes against Yemen’s Al-Dailami airbase. Saudi jets have been carrying out military strikes against Yemen since March 26.

According to Yemeni media outlets, on Sunday Saudi fighter jets targeted a factory in the western Yemeni province of Al-Hudaydah, killing three civilians and injuring 19 others. The Saudi fighter jets also targeted residential areas, a military airbase and a police headquarters in the province in separate attacks.

Now we come to the interesting part – analysis of the wreckage shows these planes to be of unknown origin. While they carried Saudi paint jobs, we know that they cannot be Saudi aircraft and in fact areIsraeli aircraft flown by Arabic speaking Israeli Air Force pilots, members of a special ‘Kamikaze’ unit that flies specially modified F16, ‘nuke carriers’ tasked for doomsday operations against Iran, Russia or Western Europe.

One of these aircraft was most likely responsible for dropping the neutron bomb on Yemen a few days ago. Yemeni media reports that two of the ‘rockets’ carried by the fighter jet remained unexploded and were found in the wreckage; these are most likely the Sidewinder missiles carried for defence against other aircraft. We do not know what other ordnance the aircraft was carrying.

The pilots of these two downed aircraft have not been found; no doubt extensive searches are being carried out – an Israeli pilot captured alive would be quite a coup for the Yemenis.

The aircraft was shot down by an updated BUK system supplied by Russia – Yemen is well-equipped with modern Russian weaponry including MiG-29s and advanced air-defence systems, a fact that has clearly been overlooked by the Saudis and their Israeli allies; they have grossly underestimated the capabilities of their enemy and as we have seen before, most notably in southern Lebanon against Hezbollah – Israel does not do so well when it’s victims are prepared and capable of fighting back; perhaps they thought they were bombing undefended civilians in Gaza?

Is Israel participated in the bombing of Yemen?
Via Al Mayadeen News on You Tube

saudi_f16_wreckagePhoto analysis of the shot down F-16 in Yemen show that they are the early model; block A/B F-16 ground attack configuration version (it has the small or what is called the short tail) with Royal Saudi Air Force markings being newly painted on the air frame. All of the so-called Arab coalition aircraft are block C/D not A/B. So this is probably one of the 50 surplus US F-16 A models given to Israel during the Clinton administration or it is a recently surplus ex-NATO aircraft either from Italy or Portugal. The only other option is that they were directly supplied from the US covertly. We need a serial no. or tail number to confirm which production block they came from.  I forgot it was carrying the 300 gal center line long range bolt on conformal drop tank with no air to air refueling capability or ECM equipment. This is why it was shot down. Too slow and no countermeasures. It was also using the older APG-66 radar. Riyadh or UAE to Yemen is only 600 miles. However Israel to Yemen is 1200 miles. An F-16 with 3 drop tanks, 4x 1000 lb bombs and 2 sidewinder missiles for self defense is do-able from Israel. The very same distance and mission configuration as needed to hit Iran.

From Press TV:

Yemeni army has shot down a Saudi warplane northeast of the northern city of Sa’ada, as Al Saud regime continues its aerial attacks against its southern neighbor unabated.According

to Yemen’s al-Masirah television, the Saudi plane was downed in Kataf district of the province. Earlier in the day, another Saudi F-16 fighter jet was downed in the Bayt Khayran area of the district of Bani Harith in the north of the northwestern province of Sana’a. The fighter jet had reportedly conducted a number of airstrikes against Yemen’s al-Dailami air base. Saudi jets have been carrying out military strikes against Yemen since March 26. On May 11, Ansarullah fighters brought down a Moroccan fighter jet violating the country’s airspace in the Noshour Valley in the northern province of Sa’ada.

Israeli Air Force Drop Neutron Bomb in Yemen, Saudi Arabia implicated (Video)

1432450851e

Listen to the woman scream then the blast hitting her surrounding area and kids and everyone else screaming. This is not good if indeed, as it looks like, it was Israel. If this was Israel they should be charged and have full sanctions placed upon them by the United Nations and the World. America destroyed IRAQ in search of a bomb like this and found nothing, and now it looks like Israel have dropped a Neutron Bomb on Yemen civilians. I just got sent this video, no news on dead or injured. Again if this is true, the World should turn away from Israel and if anyone wants to defend them, well, as ‘W’ said after 9/11 “You are either with us or against us” I will source as much as I can here. Today revealed on Tuesday that the two F16s, which were shot down over Yemen this week, belonged to the Israeli Air Force.

A. Its not a conventional 2k lb bomb. It’s much bigger.

B. 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 ha 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…………..

Neutron Bomb Dropped by Israeli Air Force Plane with Saudi Markings on Yemeni Civilians
Via North America on You Tube – Listen to the screaming of innocent people

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.

‘ Massive Car-Bomb Explodes Apparently Targeting Iranian Ambassador ‘

#AceBreakingNews – YEMEN – Dec.03 – A massive car bomb exploded Wednesday morning in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, apparently targeting the home of the Iranian ambassador, Yemeni security officials said AP reported. 

The blast heavily damaged several buildings in the area.

At least two people were killed, both security guards at the ambassador’s residence, the officials said.

The Yemeni officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to brief the media.
