The country, threatened by the greatest famine in decades, is gaining international negligence and silence, which is not commensurate with the scale of the tragedy, but acceptable to total disregard and shameful international silence. Towards violations against the Yemenis committed by the coalition of aggression since March 2015.
However, this escalation is in intensity and frequency of international and political statements and calls for the alliance and its role in creating the worst humanitarian catastrophe in the world has left no real impact on the bloody approach adopted by Riyadh in its aggression or its repercussions on the ground. The blockade imposed on the most important land, air and sea ports has not been lifted, and brutal bombing has not stopped, and the UN Security Council has not been freed from the grip of Saudi economic blackmail, and the wave of cholera has not receded.
Since April 27, cholera has killed at least 2,202 people in Yemen, with 926,187 suspected cases of the disease, according to a World Health Organization (WHO) report.
The organization said that «cases recorded in 22 Yemeni provinces, out of 23», noting that «the provinces that have the largest number of injuries are Hojdah and Hodeidah and the capital Sana’a, while the outbreak of the outbreak, which was described by Oxfam as the largest in the world “And the United Nations as” the worst in history “, Socotra province in the southeast.
The international organizations and the health sector are not different in their assessment of the pivotal role played by the Saudi aggression, namely the indiscriminate bombing of residential areas and the systematic destruction of infrastructure, particularly water and sanitation wells, and the land, sea and air blockades that prevent humanitarian access to food and medicine. The spread of cholera in a country that imports 90 percent of its basic needs.
In a desperate attempt to mislead world public opinion, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) announced yesterday that the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Action has signed two projects to treat and combat cholera in Yemen in cooperation with the World Health Organization. The total cost of the projects is “more than 22 million Dollars. The agency said the signing was a “directive from the Saudi Crown Prince”, Mohammed bin Salman, “the reckless and emotional young man who has committed a series of terrible mistakes in the last two years. The first was to declare war on Yemen,” according to an article by Wilson Center researcher Ron David Miller, and researcher at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Richard Sukolsky. The authors caution that the Crown Prince “will not only drag his country into problems, but also the United States,” and describe his foreign decisions as “failed adventures.”
