David Beasley, the head of the U.N.’s World Food Program, told reporters last week after a visit to Yemen that the conditions on the ground in the country are “hell.” Beasley underscored his point by describing a children’s wing of a hospital:
“In a children’s wing or ward of the hospital, you know, you normally hear crying and laughter. There’s no crying, there’s no laughter, there’s dead silence. This is hell. It’s the worst place on earth, and it’s entirely man-made.”
Saudi Arabia, with the support of then-President Obama, announced the launch of the Yemen war from Washington, D.C. in 2015. 
The Houthis, who were ruling large sections of the country for over a thousand years, had overthrown President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who was put in control by the Saudi’s. The Houthis took control of Sana’a (Yemen’s largest city) and seized the presidential palace.
The Yemen war, as we have been reporting, is considered the world’s worst humanitarian disaster, killing at least 230,000. About 400,000 Yemeni children under five could die this year of hunger, reports said.
Besides allegations of indiscriminate bombings, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia have been accused of enforcing a blockade that has stranded hundreds of food trucks in a port city. 
The U.N. reported that over 16 million in the country are food insecure and about 50,000 are facing famine-like conditions. The agency says it needs about $1.9 billion to avert catastrophe.
TRENDPOST: The U.N. has been warning that the coronavirus outbreak and economic fallout could push up to 32 million people in the world’s poorest countries into extreme poverty… and the world seems not to care.
Mushin Siddiquey, Oxfam’s Yemen director, recently pointed to data produced from the Stockholm Peace Research Institute that showed G20 states “have exported over $17 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia since the Kingdom entered the conflict in Yemen.” ReliefWeb.int reported that UNICEF’s humanitarian appeal pulled in $237 million, which is a funding gap of almost $300 million.
While the COVID War and its growing “cases” make headline news minute after minute, barely a peep from the Presstitutes of the mass murder and human suffering inflicted on innocent people by murderous politicians and their nations that sell the invaders murderous weapons and impose murderous food supply blockades.
