On behalf of Pakistani liberals and rights activists, we condemn Saudi Arabia’s illegal attack againts a soveign nation, Yemen. Saudi Arabia has violated internaitonal law and UN charter by attacking a sovereign country.
We condemn the tragic loss of life in Yemen where hundreds innocent women, men and children have been killed in airstrikes by Saudi Arabia on their homes in Sana’a and elsewhere. Here are a few pictures of destroyed homes in Sanaa that were targeted last night (26 March 2015) by Saudi Air Strikes on Yemen. Innocent Sunni Sufi and Shia children, women and men are being killed and injured in Saudi-led air strikes on Yemen.
The Saudi aggression seems to be motivated by the recent losses suffered by the Al Qaeda, ISIS and other Takfiri Salafi and Wahhabi militants in Yemen at the hands of Yemeni armed forces and Ansarallah (known as Houthis). Saudi Arabia wants to export Takfirism and Salafism (i.e., Al Qaeda, ISIS) to Yemen and doesn’t want to see stability and democracy in a neighbouring country.
Through aggression on Yemen, Saudi Arabia wants to save ISIS from a sure defeat in Tikrit and Mosul, by diverting Iran, Hezbollah, Kurds to Yemen.
Al-Qaeda and Takfiris are about to be wiped off from Yemen. Therefore Saudi Arabia is worried and using naked aggression against Houthis.
We are concerned to note that Saudi Arabia announced “its” war against Yemen from Washington. United States seems to have given a tacit nod to Saudi Arabia in this aggression. We urge Russia, China and other nations to play their own role to counter this act of aggression by Saudi Arabia and its Western sponsor.
According to Yemen’s government, “there is a great anger among the population in Yemen against those countries like USA and Saudi Arabia who support Al-Qaeda and ISIS. The Saudi Arabia are offering a clear support to AQ in Yemen. 25 million (Ymenen inhabitants) will move to respond”.
We support Pakistani cricker Shoaib Akhtar’s social media campaign: Kindly use this tag #PakistanRejectsSaudiWarOnYemen to condemn the Saudi aggression on Yemen being a Pakistani.
We note that mainstream media hiding the fact that this is an attack on Yemeni Armed Forces which comrise Yemen Army includuing Republican Guard, air force, navy and the popular movement Ansarallah. It’s not an attack on Houthis alone, it is an atack on Yemen, its capital and its armed forces.
We fully support Yemen Amed Forces in defence of their motherland from the Saudi Aggression. We hope that every single Saudi, UAE or Bahrain sodier or Al-Qaeda/ISIS terrorist who illegally steps on Yemen’s soil will be eliminated by brave Yemen army.
We are concerned by the Saudi media (Al-Arabiya) report that Pakistan has agreed to dispatch jet fighters to take part in the Saudi attack and Pakistani troops are now a part of 15,000 strong Saudi-led army on the Saudi-Yemn border. UK’s Guardian newspaper confirms that Pakistan army is a part of 15,000 Saudi troops ready for ground attack on Yemen http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/mar/26/saudi-arabia-begins-airstrikes-against-houthi-in-yemen?CMP=share_btn_tw
Al-Monitor‘s article being circualted by PML-N propagandists is 11 days old. Pakistan troops are alrady on Saudi-Yemen border. PM Nawaz Sharif is a liar.
Saudi TV Al-Arabiya confirms that Pakistani troops are a part of Saudi aggression against Yemen. Shame on PM Nawaz! http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2015/03/26/Pakistan-Egypt-join-military-campaign-against-Houthis.html
We believe that Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif has exceeded his legal mandate by committing our armed forces to support the Saudi attack on Yemen. We urge PM Nawaz Sharif to refain from committing Pakistani troops in support of Saudi aggression on Yemen in any form or shape, directly or indirectly.
We condemn the Saudi-backed pro-Taliban Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif’s decision to join Saudi aggression against Yemen. After curshing pro-democracy uprising in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia is massacring the democratic revolution in Yemen. Pakistan must stay away!
We urge Pakistan army / ISPR to clarify its position through an urgent press release.
We also urge Pakistani lawyers to move to Supreme Court and parliamentarians to call an urgent session of Senate and National Assembly forcing the Nawaz Sharif gov to explain clear facts about the current or future Pakistani role in Saudi attakc on Yemen. Questons to be asked: 1. Are there currently any Pakistani troops, planes, ground forces on the Saudi-Yemen border? 2. Who authorized them? 3. What exact is their direct or indirect role in Saudi attack on Yemen?
