US Drone War Killing Innocents


An analyst says America’s so called soft war of mistake-prone killer drone strikes is absolutely not soft as murdering people could never be considered to be gentle or sympathetic. The comment comes as at least four civilians have lost their lives in a new US assassination drone strike in Yemen’s central province of Marib. Yemeni military officials said a vehicle in Marib, situated approximately 170 kilometers (110 miles) east of the capital Sana’a was targeted late on Saturday and its four passengers were killed, Saba news agency reported. The report added that the bodies of the four were burnt beyond recognition. Washington has been using its assassination drones in Yemen and some other countries, claiming that it is targeting terrorists, but the attacks have mostly led to massive civilian deaths. Press TV has conducted an interview with director of the center for Middle East Studies Hisham Jaber in Beirut to further discuss the issue.
