After more than 90 days of murder, terror, displacement, and massacres against the people of Yemen, cameras are monitoring the violence and condemning the world’s blindness. Photographs call on humanity to witness the aggression against Yemen’s people and land.

In a gallery opening on June 25, photos of the crimes of the Saudi aggression against Yemen that have targeted property and killed the innocent civilians are now on display at Bait al-Thaqafah (Culture house).

At the opening ceremony, Huda Ablan, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Culture, pointed out that the photos reveal the horror of the crimes against the Yemeni people. “The aggression today became the title of a lot of different forms of expression that will be chronicled for the worst political era experienced by the Saudi regime by killing children, women and civilians. These crimes will be perpetuated in the minds of poets, writers and thinkers who will record this ugliness that has exceeded all limits, principles, values and traditions of war.”

Dr. Youseph al-Hadheri, a Member of the National Committee to Document the Crimes of Aggression, said that the exhibition contains a number of photographs and paintings that tell about the Saudi regime’s crimes against the Yemeni people.

He added that the exhibition will be presented in six other countries, including America, Europe, Russia and some Arab countries.

In Yemen, numbers are no longer just numbers. They have become a story of 713 children sent to heaven, 532 women brutally killed, 7,103 people injured and fighting for their lives, 700 homes, 123 schools, 38 mosques, 10 airports, 6 ports, 180 roads and bridges, 64 hospitals, 37 university and educational institutions, 330 governmental compounds, 95 gas stations, 24 poultry farms, 15 water supply systems, 23 archaeological sites, 19 stadiums, 70 grain silos, 20 food trucks, 67 factories, 130 food storage sites and commercial markets and 35 fuel trucks damaged.

The figures are increasing and the war against Yemen continues.
