Joint Incidents Assessment Team (JIAT) on Yemen Issues Statement on Results of A Number of Incidents
Published in Alriyadh on 23 - 02 - 2017

Joint Incidents Assessment Team (JIAT) has issued a statement regarding the alleged bombings of the German hospital, Abs prison, the main commercial street in Saada and Alzuruq camp for the displaced people, as follows:
With respect to what is stated in the final report of the Yemen Panel of Experts, established by the Security Council resolution no. (2140) dated on 22/01/2016, that the German hospital was exposed damages in Haradh in Hajjah Governorate as a result of an aerial bombing to target a nearby site to the hospital on 07/07/2015, which resulted in damages of the hospital's generators and parts of the building.
Joint Incidents Assessment Team (JIAT) verified the facts and circumstances of the incident and reviewed the reports of the tasks records on the day of the claim. The JIAT disclosed that the Coalition Air Forces dealt with a target which is away about 17 km from the hospital. This target represents a warehouse of weapons in a farm which is far away about 500 meters from the southern borders of the Kingdom Saudi Arabia making this site as a military legitimate target.
The JIAT stressed the safety of procedures implemented by the coalition forces in dealing with the military target in the same region on the date of the claim and in accordance with the provisions of the International Humanitarian Law.
On the report of the Human Watch, the team said it has checked the sites of claims of death and casualties, at Eibs Prison, in Khulan, Hajja Governorate, on 30 June 2015, concluding that the Coalition air force has dealt with two targets, both are weaponry depots, by firing a laser guided bomb, at each, on 13 May 2015. These were two Houthi militia's targets, henceforth, they are military spots, which we took advantage, military speaking, through targeting them.
The team stressed that the building of the prison, neither targeted nor affected, at all, by the air bombing committed by the Coalition air force.
Thus, the findings of the team is that: Following counter checking the aforementioned incidents, the procedures and measurements taken by the Coalition were justified, in dealing with military targets, in the area, as they were compatible with the rules of the Humanitarian International Law.
