Humanitarian situation in Yemen is catastrophic
Mohammad Ali al-Houthi stressed that the situation in this country has reached the level of the greatest humanitarian catastrophe. “We call on the representatives of the Security Council to visit the Republic of Yemen and observe its catastrophic situation, which has reached the level of the greatest humanitarian catastrophe,” he wrote in his Twitter account. “We call on them to play their humanitarian role in combating hunger, siege and sanctions, and to listen to the words of the employees whose salaries have been withheld by the aggressor coalition,” he added. “We once again invite the representatives of the Security Council and all the freedom-seeking people of the world to visit Yemen,” he noted. Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of Riyadh-allied former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing the popular Houthi movement.
