    Yemen Is The World's Worst Humanitarian Crisis

    https://edition.cnn.com/2018/04/03/m...ntl/index.html
    Often called the "forgotten war" amid Western media focus on Syria, Yemen's situation is now catastrophic, with "nearly half of all children aged between six months and 5 years old chronically malnourished," according to Guterres.

    Both sides of the conflict have used food as a weapon of war,
    but the crisis is caused primarily by a brutal air, land and sea blockade imposed by a Saudi Arabia-led coalition.

    While the conference focused predominately on the spiralling humanitarian crisis in Yemen, it cannot be forgotten that the conflict remains ongoing. Until it is concluded, there will be no sustainable solution to this humanitarian crisis, driven by conflict.
    What a relief to know that Saudi Arabia is our ally.

    It's a mess, and it could spread to the entire Horn of Africa region, one of the poorest regions of the planet. The entire region is on the verge of a food crisis.

    The entire region is already the most water stressed in the world, and faces a worsening crisis. Perhaps we should help them build nuclear desalination plants, such as Israel's Dimona facility.
