WFP covering up rotten food with a war of statements led by USA on Yemen
Head of the National Authority for Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Abdul Mohsen Al-Tawoos, revealed that 30 employees of the World Food Program (WFP) were rejected because they were found to be affiliated with foreign intelligence services.
“The commission has rejected 30 employees of the World Food Program after discovering their affiliation with foreign intelligence services,” Al-Tawoos said .
While, the Director General of Customs in Sana’a, Abdulkarim Al-Kohlani, reported the confiscation of 168,9 tons of expired flour on five trucks, 150 tons of food supplement for pregnant women aboard two trucks. In addition to large amounts of expired medicines belonging the World Food Program.
“The WFP is no longer carrying out a humanitarian operation (in Yemen), but its activities have rather become purely political. It is advancing the agendas of the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and the United States,” NAMCHA said in a statement published by Lebanon-based and Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network on Tuesday.
The statement added, “The donors and financiers of the WFP are the countries participating in the aggression on Yemen, led by America, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.”
Spokesman for the Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights Talat al-Sharjabi , for his part, said that the threats of the World Food Program (WFP)’s President to stop distributing relief aid portend a major humanitarian disaster in Yemen.
On Monday, Mohamed Ali Al-Houthi ,member of the Supreme Political Council, said the World Food Organization (WFP) is covering up rotten food with a war of statements led by its American director, the well-known for his religious tendency, adding that WFP remarks were influenced by the Pompeo policy, known for his relentless defense of the continued sale of arms deals that are killing Yemenis.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
