As the Saudi-led coalition’s crimes continue,Yemen about to run out of blood
Health Minister Taha al-Mutawakil on Monday stressed on the importance of doubling efforts to complete and provide medical equipment and supplies for maternity and childhood hospital.
During his visit to inspect the hospital in Sanaa university, al-Mutawakil said the ministry would provide the necessity support from medical supplies and furnishing to prepare the hospital for alleviating the Yemeni patients as a result of the coalition’s war and siege.
The Public Health and Population Office in Sanhan and Bani Bahlul districts of Sanaa province launched a blood donation campaign for the patients and wounded.
Dr. Abdul Ghani Faraj, director of the health office in the directorate, said the campaign comes within the framework of community responsibility towards the patients and wounded, especially in light of the current circumstances in which the country is going through the continued war and blockade.
The Yemeni Parliament approved to address two letters to the Parliament and the Shura Council in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to brief them on the suffering of Yemeni citizens at Queen Alia International Airport.
The two letters included demands for improving the treatment of Yemeni citizens within the framework of the bilateral and historical relations between the two brotherly countries.
At its meeting, the parliament reviewed some of the US newspapers calling for halting arms sale to the coalition’s countries, especially Saudi Arabia, in order to protect civilians’ lives, reduce the high rate of famine and poverty resulting from wars and maintain human rights.
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.
