Yemen: Sanaa residents wary of UN blacklist of Saudi-led coalition over children deaths

The United Nations' decision to blacklist the Saudi-led military coalition for violations against children on Thursday, was met with wary comments by Sanaa residents on Friday. «The UN decision to blacklist the countries of aggression for the second time is a good gesture, however, we do not take it seriously,» said Tawfic Hamerie, political activist. Local politician Abed Al-Elah Al-Sharafi... Еще stated, «It is not the first time where the Saudi name appears on the blacklist and is deleted after a while. I do not think this time is different.» Sanaa resident Alaa Muhammad said, «Adding Saudi Arabia and the coalition of the aggression to the blacklist is a positive decision at this period. They were on the blacklist before but the Saudi had paid money to erase their name from it.» On Thursday, the Saudi Arabia-led coalition was included in the UN's draft annual blacklist for violations against children in conflict, on the basis of having killed or injured at least 683 children in 2016, reports say.
