Imposing a blockade from all front on Yemen (air, sea and land):
Since the beginning of the Aggression the Yemeni people have been living under catastrophic situation due to the lack of all humanitarian necessities:
– Hospitals are suffering from a catastrophic situation because of the lack of oxygen . The Saudi-led air raids have destroyed the only oxygen factory in Yemen which led to this disaster.
– Hospitals are suffering from an acute shortage of medicine due to the blockade, while the number of causalities is mounting due to the intensive and continued air strikes.
– Most medical equipment in hospitals are out of order because of the electrical blackout.
– No water supplies to all of Yemen due to the lack of fuel. This is making people live under catastrophic circumstances.
Oil and fuel crisis:
The Saudi-led Aggression campaign on Yemen has created a catastrophe due to shortages in fuel as everything in Yemen depends on fuel. Factories, farms, labs, bakeries, cars, and water pumps all stopped due to the lack of fuel.
Yemen is a major dependent on imports for most of its life necessities including wheat, the main dietary source in Yemen. Now because of the war and the blockade imposed on Yemen, the country is on the brink of starvation.
Despite all the warnings from humanitarian organizations and international organizations on the worsening humanitarian situation in Yemen, the Saudi-led Aggression has not budged on reducing its blockade on Yemen or allowing humanitarian aid to enter Yemen.
