The High Commissioner for human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, on Monday called for an independent international investigation into the air strikes in Yemen.

According to the UN, since march 2015 by the bombing at least 4125 civilians killed. Sure 7200 victims were injured. There is ample reason to suppose that there is a violation of human rights.

The bombard of a building complex in Sanaa where a rouwplechtigheid was held was yet another example. The missile attack claimed Saturday 140 lives, of, among others, leaders of the Houthi-insurgents.

“Since the beginning of the conflict in Yemen are weddings, markets, hospitals, schools and now a begrafenisbijeenkomst taken under fire. The result was numerous civilian casualties, while completely it remained unclear who was responsible for these acts,” said Zeid.
