The United States has been supplying weapons to the Saudi-led international coalition and helping the coalition implement a blockade of Yemen, despite announcing in 2021 an end to its role in the war.
The Saudi-led international coalition intervened in the Yemen conflict in 2015. It has also imposed a land and sea blockade. According to UNICEF, around 11 million Yemeni children are directly affected by the war and around 2.2 million are extremely malnourished, reports Peoples Dispatch.
UN Special Envoy Hans Grundberg and UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths highlighted the drastic rise in civilian casualties over the last few months, reports People's Dispatch.
