Saudi aggression on Yemen lingers
 
The Saudi jetfighters have staged airstrikes against Yemen for the 4th consecutive week, leading the UN to warn against the possibility of famine in this country. The UN chief’s spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, has cited the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) as noting that almost eleven million people are grappling with food insecurity in Yemen, and five million others are in a state of emergency, suffering from shortage of food, and malnutrition.
The UN chief spokesman also emphasized that given the continued aggressions of Saudi jetfighters against Yemen’s infrastructure, the relief operations across Yemeni ports have faced a number of limitations and delivery of food and medicine to regions in Yemen has been interrupted.

The UN International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and World Health Organization (WHO) have warned against the emergence of a humanitarian crisis in Yemen, emphasizing that the food and fuel crisis has mounted in this country.

These warnings come while the Saudi jetfighters continue to target civilians in Yemen.

Recently, the Saudi warplanes heavily pounded a city in northern Yemen, partly razing this city to the ground and killing 65-plus civilians. The city of Sana’a has also been bombarded by the Saudi warplanes.

An American journalist, Lawrence Freeman, believes that the Saudi military operation in Yemen is a genocide which has taken place with the grant of green light by the US.

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) in its report has accused the Saudi troops of commitment of war crimes and slaughter of civilians in Yemen.

Meanwhile, since the onset of air raids by Saudi warplanes against Yemen, the Riyadh officials have obstructed the delivery of humanitarian aid to the people of Yemen.

The UN Chief, Ban Ki Moon, has referred to Saudi aggression on Yemen and the possibility of ground attacks against the Yemeni nation, while urging an immediate end to clashes in Yemen.

The UN chief has pointed out that an UN-supported diplomatic process is the best possible option for termination of the war which Yemen is grappling with.

This comes while the people of Yemen staged massive demonstrations on Thursday, strongly condemning the Saudi aggression against their country, and calling on the international community and world organizations to launch a probe into the horrific crimes committed by Saudi forces against the Yemeni nation.
