All other strikes would then fall into the category of “other US operations”.However, events this year have made it evident that our method could be tweaked to give a clearer picture of the air war in these countries.For example, during the massive US bombardment in Yemen in March and April, the US announced how many strikes it had carried out, but did not specify whether they had used a drone in most of these cases.This means that 95 per cent of the strikes were presented as operations in our year-by-year summaries, giving the casual viewer the impression we had omitted them from our tally entirely.Nigel Timmins, Oxfam’s Humanitarian Director who has just returned back from a fact finding mission to Yemen, said: “It is quite frankly staggering that in just three months more people in Yemen have contracted cholera than any country has suffered in a single year since modern records began.
We need an end to country entry restrictions of supplies and people so that we can get on with the job.
In Somalia, a US gunboat also bombarded al Shabaab fighters on the shoreline.
We had been pulling all air strikes reported to have been carried out by drones into their own year-by-year summaries in the datasets for the two countries.
It is feared that the total number of people infected could eventually rise to over 600,000, making it one of the largest outbreak since records began in 1949.
Almost 2,000 people in Yemen have died from suspected cholera since late April this year and many more are now at risk, weakened by hunger, disease and the ongoing war.
