In his report to the Security Council meeting this Thursday, Mark Lowcock, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, has denounced that the actions of the White House authorities against Ansarola will expose the Yemeni people to a famine unprecedented in 40 years.
Lowcock has assured that the U.S. decision to grant some exemptions to relief organizations will not prevent at all a crisis of hunger in the poor country of Yemen.
The report points out that according to estimates and studies, Yemen is experiencing the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world, so much so that 80% of its population of 30 million souls will be exposed to severe hunger in the new year 2021.
The US State Department declared last Monday that it plans to include Ansarola in its list of terrorist organizations.
Since March 2015, Yemen has suffered a war in which 23,300 people have lost their lives as a result of attacks by the US-Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia and supported by the Israeli regime.
The Yemeni army and Ansarola’s forces are defending themselves against the people, which continues to this day.
The effort of international institutions to end this war has failed again and again because of the sabotage in Riyadh.
