Saudi military aggression has left the impoverished country of Yemen severely short of food and medicine.
Sanaa- Najib al-Qabati, deputy minister of health in the Yemeni government for national salvation said that every year 100,000 children die in Yemen due to the ongoing attacks and siege of the country by the so-called Saudi coalition.
Najib al-Qabati, said that every hour, six infants die in the country.
Al-Qabati added that Yemen’s siege has led to a sharp increase in malnutrition among pregnant mothers and infant deaths, and the closure of Sanaa airport is now a major obstacle to the transfer of newborn Siamese twins abroad.
The siege and continuing conflict have put Yemen’s millions on the brink of starvation, and according to the United Nations, Yemen is experiencing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
Saudi Arabia, with the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and many other countries, has launched a military invasion of Yemen since March 2015 and a land, sea, and air siege.
The Saudi military aggression has also left the impoverished country of Yemen severely short of food and medicine.
