We seem to hear quite a lot about the atrocities being committed by the Syrian and Russian military in Aleppo, but what about atrocities being committed in a war that has ties much closer to home for “westerners”. Where children are again some of the worst affected.
At least one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen. That’s the conclusion of a report just published by the U.N. children’s agency, UNICEF. The report also found that there has been a 200 percent increase since 2014 in children suffering from severe acute malnutrition, with almost half a million affected. Nearly 2.2 million children are in need of urgent care. This comes as the country’s health system is on the verge of collapse, in part due to the ongoing U.S.-backed Saudi bombing of Yemen.
