WFP Kills People with Rotten, Expired Aid
For nearly five years, the US-Saudi aggression and blockade of Yemen have created the worst humanitarian disaster in the world. It was not only the countries involved in the aggression that caused the disaster, the United Nations helped. United Nations relief organizations are killing the Yemeni People.
Exploiting the situation in Yemen, humanitarian organizations in Yemen are sending ships that is laden with tons of food that is unfit for human consumption, disregarding the suffering of Yemeni people. Since 2015, Yemen Standardization, Metrology and Quality Control Organization in Hodeidah has rejected 24 shipments belonging to the World Food Program.
Almasirah channel received reports revealing another type of the US-Saudi aggression on Yemen and its committed crimes against Yemenis. Since November 2018, nearly six ships with tons of rotten, damaged, expired flour have been returned.
On November 6, the authority returned the ship Sarah, which carries 10,000 tons of white wheat following the World Food Program. The wheat was rotten, expired and unfit for human consumption. After checking, the presence of live insects and strange materials was revealed. Another lading followed, it violated the specifications, standards and quality control in the ship Amina. In February 2019, 96000 bags of white flour with a total weight of 4 million and three hundred kilograms were returned as they do not have the production date.
In May 2019, the UN World Food Program (WFP) sent more than 160,000 bags of wheat that is unsuitable for human consumption in the Jetty Marit ship. After the examination, it was shown that more than 8 million kilograms of wheat contains dead insects. This month, two shipments of wheat and white beans were returned because they did not meet the specifications and standards. The first was on June 3 and contained 9718 bean bags. They were wet, rotten and unfit for human consumption. On June 11, the other was examined and discovered that it contains insects in 120 thousand bags of them.
The United Nations World Food Program has great disregard of the Yemeni humanitarian suffering it exceeded the use of poor storage and distribution of expired products to sending ships loaded with tons of rotten and expired flour that is unfit for human consumption. These are some of the evidence of the World Food Program exploitation for the sufferings of the Yemenis and their human tragedies, which is no less horrifying than what the war machine does.
