    International aid organization Oxfam warned that the people of Yemen are at risk of running out of food by April, which will also mark two years of conflict in the poorest country in the Middle East.

    Saudi Arabia began bombing the country in support of exiled president Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi at the end of March 2015, after Houthi rebels loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, said to be backed by Iran, took over the capital of Sanaa.

    Over three million people have been displaced by the conflict which has taken more than 11,000 lives, Oxfam said. Child malnutrition has jumped by 200 percent in two years and the World Health Organization has recorded over 7,000 suspected cases of Cholera.

    Half the population is suffering from food insecurity and malnutrition, while 82 percent are in need of humanitarian assistance, Oxfam reports.

    “Yemen is being slowly starved to death,” Oxfam GB chief executive, Mark Goldring said. “First there were restrictions on imports – including much-needed food. When this was partially eased, the cranes in the ports were bombed; then the warehouses, then the roads and the bridges. This is not by accident – it is systematic.”

    The group is urging the Saudi-led coalition to lift restrictions in order to allow food and other supplies to make it to the people. It reports the amount of food being imported fell below amounts needed to feed half the people in August and has remained at that level since.

    “The country’s economy, its institutions, its ability to feed and care for its people are all on the brink of collapse,” he added.

    The US and the UK have provided support, both in terms of weapons and tactical assistance, despite reports of civilian deaths and war crimes.

    “As one of the principal backers of this brutal war, Britain needs to end its arms sales and military support to the Saudis and help put Yemen on the road to peace,” Goldring said.

    The UN has also voiced concerns for the Yemeni plight, accusing the world of ignoring the humanitarian crisis. “The world has turned a blind eye to what's happening in Yemen,” senior UN Jamie McGoldrick, a senior UN official in Yemen told the BBC . “Right now we are so under-resourced for this crisis, it's extraordinary."

    “The politics of the situation has overcome the humanity," he said. "Families are just not able to feed their families.”

    Amnesty International’s director for arms control Oliver Sprague described UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Boris Johnson’s efforts to justify the government supplying Saudi Arabia with arms as “a disgrace.”

    — WHSummit (@WHSummit) December 5, 2016
    "With such a clear and continuing risk that any British arms sold to Saudi Arabia could be used to commit breaches of international humanitarian law in Yemen, the UK should immediately suspend all such arms sales.”

    What is happening to Muslim world guys?
    When will Muslims understand that KSA has attacked the Sunnis and ShiAs of Yemen in coordination with their western masters? When will they understand that Saudi thugs are Israel's puppets? When will the Muslim world will come to this fact?! Hard to find an answer. Perhaps some people care about Dollar more then their religion and if you belong to this community please ignore this thread.

    Give Saudis and Iranians nuclear weapons and wait for them to nuke each other to hell. Et voilà, all our problems will be solved.

    Yemen is in neighborhood of Saudi and Saudi has long running strategic intrests in Yemen which also over lap tribal releations and has millions invested into Yemeni economy. Along comes Iran the regional Phapa Kutni, arms a few rag tag terrorist and starts a war..and the result as we all see it..

    Who are you to decide who is corrupt and who is not?
    Forcefully annexing high value property in Tehran and auctioning it off to deposit proceeds in Ayatollah accounts is not a holy practice either..

    Speak with enough sources. What is your source?
    And i promise you if we decide to arm Yemeni people, we will say it openly like our protection for Palestinian groups fighting Israel. We are not afraid of USA's lap dog in the region so be sure we will not be afraid of anyone else in the region

    Your source has no witnesses for it's claim. That's a bullshit lie. Moreover we have president in our country who is running our country and he has the responsibility of Administrative affairs in the country. We are not a kingdom you little kid

    The stupid Muslims like you. Lovers of Jewish Al-Saud family. I told the tagged guys not to comment in this thread if they are enslaved by Saudi dollars

    its their belief.. we shouldn't question that (except in a debate)

    @mohammad45
    1 Do you support kashmiri? does india stop u doing that?
    2 SA is neighbor of Yemen. Its her right to be worried about the 'freedom fighter' who toppled teh Govt with or without support from tehran.
    3. If toppling govt is right, as yemen rebels are doing, so why those are terrorists (which mostly they are) who r fighitng against Asad?

    His tomb is shut down due to the demands of Iranian Sunni MPs of the parliament. No one can get close to his tomb. You can search on the net for the Evidence. Forget about that Turk. Turks are interested in religious and ethnic clashes. They are serving their western masters to ruin Muslim countries and do their troll during the conflicts. Thank God Russia exists :undecided::lol:
    Yes i do. I believe that first we must destroy Israel then start these:
    1) Protecting Kashmiri Muslims.
    2) Protecting Muslims of Myanmar
    3) protecting Muslims of Yemen
    4) protecting Muslims of Lybia
    5) Protecting Muslims of central Africa being slaughtered by militants backed by France
    etc
    But the first issue in my mind is destruction of Israel. Do you agree bro?
    That goverment was a traitor. That guy is leading KSA's attacks on his own people. He is a traitor and new government which will not be a stooge of anyone, is appearing in Yemen. Al-Saud family is bullying Yemen. That's the truth
    Syrian conflict is much different bro. Look at USA's role in Syria. They protect whole terrorists in Syria but why? For greater Israel. We stopped their plan
