Francesco Rocca, president of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, called on the international community to unremain silent on the crimes of the Saudi regime in Yemen.
Rocca said that the blockade imposed on Yemen by the Saudi coalition has caused severe food insecurity and an unprecedented increase in infectious diseases in the country. Many Yemenis, especially children, need clean water, food and emergency medical assistance to survive.
In the same vein, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), based in Rome, said earlier that the acute food shortage in Yemen is dragging the country into a catastrophic famine.
The International Commission on Human Rights called on the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid bin Ra’ad al-Hussein and the Secretary-General of the United Nations to conduct serious investigations into the attack by Israeli warplanes on Yemen.
Mr. Haitham Abu Said, commissioner of the International Commission for Human Rights in the region, said that all countries were claimed to respect international law must take serious steps in this regard to stop these crimes in Yemen.
This war destroys the Yemeni people clearly and morally and in the eyes of the world, and they can not face this war. The condemnation and regret is of no use. A quick decision must be made to return this file to the International Criminal Court.
Since March 2015, Yemen has been targeted by brutal attacks by the Saudi regime with the full support of the United States, Britain, the United Arab Emirates and many other countries.
The Saudi war and its allies in Yemen have killed more than 14,000 Yemeni citizens, tens of thousands of people have been wounded and millions of Yemenis have been displaced. Yemen also faced a severe shortage of food and medicine and the spread of various diseases as a result of this war.
