30 Shocking Pictures That Show The Situation In Yemen Is Dire

The Arab world’s poorest country, Yemen, has been wracked by a bloody war between those who support Yemen’s internationally recognized government and the Houthi rebels. The conflict has resulted in the killing of thousands of people in the Middle Eastern nation. Approximately, 2,000 Yemenis died from cholera, and almost 370,000 contracted it. Sadly, this figure is expected to raise to 600,000.

Several foreign countries are involved in that war. In 2015, Saudi Arabia formed an Arab states coalition to defeat the Houthis. That coalition now involves Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan, Qatar, Egypt, and Senegal. The United States is also responsible for the catastrophe taking place in Yemen, as it often launches air strikes on al-Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ISIS) targets in the country. Together with France and the UK, the United States supplied the Saudi-led coalition with weapons. There are also reports of U.S. troops being deployed to the area.

Unluckily for the people of Yemen, aid organizations are facing major difficulties delivering food, medicine and other necessities caught in the conflict. According to Al Jazeera reports, the Houthi siege of parts of the city of Taiz has blocked critical medical supplies from arriving. Fighting in Aden has also made it almost impossible for the World Food Programme to deliver aid supplies there.

By sharing the Yemeni people’s plight, you might help the Western world learn more about this atrocity and do something to change it.
