The UK/US/UN-backed "coalition" continues the genocide on Yemen (although there have been many stories that it had stopped).
One way is bombing water facilities, as without clean drinking water, Yemenis can't grow food either and will surely die. Almost 2000 Yemeni water installations (dams, barriers, reservoirs) have been completely or partially destroyed by bombs.

The brutal years-long blockade has also prevented the entry of fuel, which means that a large amount of water pumps can't be used.
According to a representative of the UN’s FAO, the war has left around 20 million Yemenis without drinking water:
With the current conflict, the number of people who don’t have access to clean water is believed to be more than 80% of the population.
.
Sana`a’s central water tanks were destroyed by US bombs dropped by Saudi warplanes.
In Sana`a, a city of 4 million, the human catastrophe is disastrous. This year, already dozens of water wells in Sana`a Basin have dried up, leaving thousands of people with only access to polluted water, or if they can afford it water at exorbitant prices.

If the war blockade continues, by 2024 at the latest Sanaa won't have access to water:
Five years from now, the water in the Sana`a Basin will dry up if the war, siege and current practices in the basin continue.

What will happen to the starving Yemenis when food prices are inflated and production reduced?!?


According to the UN Development Programme (UNDP) by the end 2019, the total number of dead Yeminis could rise to 233,000, with 60%younger than five and more than 13 million “at risk of” starvation.
That includes 102,000 killed in combat and 131,000 due to starvation.

By 2022 “more than 330,000 children” could be dead: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 92926.html


Already in December 2016, UNICEF reported that one child dies younger than 5 dies every 10 minutes of “preventable” causes. That’s more than 1000 a week. Or more than 125,000 by now.
Since then the starvation of Yemenis has gotten even worse. I wouldn’t be surprised if already more than half a million Yemenis have died...

UN agency World Food Program said that it finally got access to silos in Yemen's port city of Hodeida that held some 51,000 metric tons of wheat — that could feed 3.7 million people for a month — after the site was made inaccessible by the “coalition” assault in September.
At least 30% of the wheat can’t be consumed anymore: https://news.yahoo.com/un-says-accessed ... 28108.html


Food aid provided by the United Nations often doesn’t reach people until it is already expired and crawling with worms and cockroaches.
In Abss, the World Food Programme facility stored at least 21,400 bags of flour and canned food, almost all of it expired and corrupted by weevil infestation. Poor Yemenis have no choice but to sift the weevil out of the flour and eat it anyway.

The “coalition” prevented a convoy of aid from fellow Yemeni civilians from being delivered to al-Durayhimi’s residents.
The war has forced many companies to quit their activties in Yemen, forcing millions in Yemen to lose their jobs, Today many families are forced to beg on the streets so they can eat.

During the “holy month” of Ramadan several regions — including Hodeidah, Hajjah, al-Beida, al-Dali, and Sana`a — are under constant aerial bombardment: https://www.mintpressnews.com/ramadan-i ... id/258397/

It is claimed that there has been a truce in the war against Yemen (including an ease of the blockade). I find it hard to believe that the suffering of Yemen has come to an end, now that inflation of food prices is coming for all of us.

According to UN data, at the end of 2021 the blockade/war has caused 377,000 deaths (an underestimate of course), more than two-thirds of those younger than 5 years old.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) reported this week stating that 1 mother and 6 newborn Yemeni babies die every 2 hours (84 per day).
The Red Cross also warned that two-thirds of Yemen’s 30.5 million people lack access to basic healthcare (most of them wouldn't need medical care if they could eat!): https://www.rt.com/news/558711-yemen-he ... ies-dying/

Since I heard about the "truce" in the war against Yemen, I've been thinking that with Yemen importing 90% of its food, including 50% of its wheat in 2021 from Ukraine and Russia, they will continue to suffer starvation even when the blockade is stopped, with global food shortages and hyperinflation already happening.

Russia's UN Security Council representative Dmitry Polyansky said:
The extremely difficult socio-economic situation in Yemen remains a subject of particular concern. The degrading situation in the country can be described as a major humanitarian catastrophe. We reiterate the urgent need to remove all restrictions on the delivery of essential goods to Yemen. Food, medicine, and other items that Yemenis need must be available to them on a non-discriminatory basis.
