Richest Countries Bomb among World’s Poorest: Yemen already a Forgotten War

VICE News | (Video) | –

“For more than six weeks, nine countries led by Saudi Arabia have been carrying out airstrikes on Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest nation. Whole neighborhoods have been destroyed and communities reduced to rubble.

According to the United Nations, the strikes, targeting Iranian-backed Houthi rebel positions in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, have killed over 1,400 people, many of them civilians.

With international media unable to enter the besieged capital, Yousef Mawry, a local journalist, recorded the devastation of his home city for VICE News. He meets the survivors and victims, getting the inside view of life in Yemen.”

  1. My husband and in-laws are stuck in Yemen and no US official seems to care. I am considering taking my concerns to the media. The people of Yemen are selfless and kind and they of all people do not deserve this. It is always the innocent civilians who suffer the most. For what? What does anyone gain from this war? Both sides are wrong. The Houthis are no angels either and they are certainly not underdogs as portrayed on this website.
