Humanitarian groups hold Saudi Arabia responsible for famine in Yemen

According to the aid groups, Saudi Arabia is doing “open-air massacre” of Yemeni civilians who are facing during the Ryadh’s two-year-long campaign against the barren country.

“The bombs that rain down every day in show an absolute disdain for civilian life,” Jean-Pierre Delomier from the Handicap International said during a joint statement with five other humanitarian aid groups on Wednesday.

“Every day our teams, when they manage to reach people, see the physical and psychological distress of the traumatized civilians,” he said, adding, “This open-air massacre is intolerable and unworthy of our era.”

 

The humanitarian aid groups further said that nearly 19 million Yemenis, or 60 percent of the country’s population, are suffering from insecurity. Among them, three million women and children are facing severe malnutrition.

Helene Queau, the operations chief of Premiere Urgence International added by telling the country is “one of the countries… where humanitarian groups have the most difficulties, partially or totally destroyed”
