Genocide as a Strategy of War in Yemen


Saudi terror-bombing, aided by US aerial bombardment by warplanes and drones, was orchestrated in Washington by the Obama administration, escalated by Trump.

War since March 2015 includes a suffocating land, sea and air blockade, preventing essentials to life in enough amounts reaching desperate Yemenis – enduring the world’s severest humanitarian crisis, worsening daily, mostly ignored by Western media.

On November 16, a statement by Human Appeal, Adventist Development and Relief Agency International, ACTED, ZOA, INTERSOS, CARE, UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Saferworld, Mercy Corps, Handicap International, Action Against Hunger USA, International Rescue Committee, Relief International, Save the Children, and Premiere Urgence Internationale explained outrage by the humanitarian community in Yemen.

Cruel, inhuman and illegal blockade “prevents the entry of food, fuel, medicines and supplies, exposing millions of people to disease, starvation and death,” the statement said – amounting to a policy of genocide forced on defenseless Yemenis.
