STOP CRUELTY AGAINST CHILDREN
 
"NO Excuses anymore!

"Again, many children were reportedly killed and injured today as a school bus was attacked in Sa’ada in northern Yemen.

"All of these children are reportedly under the age of 15 years old.

"Does the world really need more innocent children’s lives to stop the cruel war on children in Yemen?"
