Crisis News: 2 Civilians Killed in Shelling of DPR, Yemen, US Assassination Policy 24.06.2015

Two civilians were killed in the Ukrainian shelling of the town of Dokuchayevsk and a neighborhood of Donetsk, the defence ministry of the Donetsk People’s Republic has reported. Last week, Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper told that Canadian military instructors will stay in Ukraine until 31 March 2017. At least six people were killed, including a women and two children, as Saudi jets targeted the district of Saqayn in Sa’ada early on Wednesday. Nine people were also killed and five more injured in Saudi airstrikes targeting the province's Razih district. The Pentagon has released a book of instructions on the “law of war,” detailing acceptable ways of killing the enemy. The manual also states that journalists can be labeled “unprivileged belligerents,” an obscure term that replaced “enemy combatant.” The Pentagon did not specify the exact circumstances under which a journalist might be declared an unprivileged belligerent, however, the manual gives a license to attack or even murder journalists.
