Washington Post: Response Needed in Yemen

Aid agencies and the United Nations have put out a warning about the food shortages in Yemen as the civil war rages on. As Missy Ryan for the Washington Post reports, “the civil war is putting more and more civilians on the brink of starvation.” Analysis suggests that 16 million people, more than half Yemen’s population, are regarded as “food insecure.” This announcement comes in the face of increased public and congressional criticism of the war and US military support for the Saudi-led bloc’s fight against the Houthi rebels, who have received logistical and monetary support from Iran. As Ryan notes, “the Saudi coalition has been criticized for what critics see as a heavy-handed response triggering extensive civilian casualties.” –YaleGlobal
