Does anyone remember the western media's campaign over Buthaina Mohammed Mansour a young girl who allegedly suffered eye bruises in an Arab airstrike in Houthi-held Sana'a on August 2017: The Observer's "Little girl with swollen eyes has become a symbol of Yemen's conflict"?; the CNN's  "The 5-year-old girl who opened the world's eyes to Yemen's plight" ?;  and the rest of the melodramatizing headlines by western media outlets?


"Butheina's eye" was wittingly exploited in the campaign to misrepresent the war against Houthis as a war against civilians, just as the Houthis wanted.

 Today, we have another girl who has been slain in a far more gruesome way than some eye bruises: Five-year-old Layan was turned to a piece of charcoal by the Houthi ballistic missile attack in Marib on Saturday.

Will the western media care? Absolutely not. These hypocrites are here to further the Shiit militia's interests, not to do any impartial news reporting job.
