"President Trump, I urge you to sign the resolution Congress passed last week ending U.S. support for this conflict. Yemen needs humanitarian aid, not more bombs," tweeted Sen. Bernie Sanders
'With a War Powers resolution that would end U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia's assault on Yemen currently on President Donald Trump's desk, the Saudi-led coalition on Sunday reportedly bombed a residential area in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, killing at least 11 and injuring dozens more.
According to local medical officials, most of those killed were young children after Saudi airstrikes hit a Yemeni school.
"Everyone was hysterical, some were crying and shouting in panic," Fatehiya Kahlani, principal of Al Raei school, told Al Jazeera. "The situation was horrible as the school population is 2,100. Some girl students were killed and others were wounded and are in a hospital as a result of the missile strike. The school building was destroyed too."
Just imagine that your kids were among students in this school.

As Al Jazeera reported:
Youssef al-Hadrii, a spokesman for the rebel-controlled health ministry, was quoted by DPA news agency as saying that the attack on Sunday left more than 39 people wounded.
He said most of the victims were students killed in the bombing of houses and a school.
The Saudi-led coalition denied bombing the area.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who helped lead the Senate effort to end U.S. complicity in Saudi Arabia's atrocities in Yemen, once again called on Trump to sign the Yemen Wars Powers resolution.
"Another horrific attack in the Saudi-led war in Yemen. More children dead," tweeted Sanders, a 2020 presidential candidate. "President Trump, I urge you to sign the resolution Congress passed last week ending U.S. support for this conflict. Yemen needs humanitarian aid, not more bombs."'
