International human rights organizations such as the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the British Save the Children fund say that every ten minutes a child dies in Yemen, what’s even worse – he would die from a curable disease. Every 35 seconds yet another child would get infected with cholera in this war-torn country. Child mortality rates accompanied by the cholera epidemic that has reached catastrophic proportions are only a tip of the iceberg of the humanitarian catastrophe that unravels in Yemen as a result of foreign invasion. However, Western media and politicians remain deaf, dumb and blind, being more that willing to turn a blind eye to the catastrophe of tragic proportions that we witness in Yemen. As we see a stream of new reports of civilians dying from by the hands of Saudi soldiers equipped with all sorts of US and UK produced weapons, we are forced to admit that Yemen has been transformed in a zone of perpetual genocide.
It’s all started back in March 2015, when Saudi Arabia, while enjoying full support of the United States and Britain, without any sort of approval issued by the UN Security Council unleashed an armed aggression against Yemen, thus acting as boldly and blatantly as only Washington would dare before.
