new york - If the Saudi Arabia-led coalition does not allow humanitarian aid in Yemen, this leads to 'the biggest famine that has seen the world for several decades with millions of victims.' This said United Nations emergency relief coordinator Mark Lowcock on Wednesday.
The Saudi Arabia-led coalition fighting against the Houthi rebels in Yemen announced Monday that it closed all air, land and sea accesses to the Arabian Peninsula in order to stop the arms deliveries to the Houthi rebels from Iran. The decision follows the interception of a rocket from Yemen fired near the Saudi capital Riyadh last Saturday.
As a result, the humanitarian crisis, which according to the UN has worsened seven million people on the verge of starvation, is worsening.
