Red Cross Urges Western Countries to Help Stop Saudi War on Yemen
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has called on Western and regional countries to use their influence towards ending the Saudi war on Yemen. “Definitely we would hope that Western countries understand the deep crisis, the risk of this enormous crisis for international stability, for the stability of the region,” said ICRC President Peter Maurer during a visit to the Yemeni capital Sana’a, recently. Saudi Arabia has been leading the campaign against Yemen to reinstate the former government. Maurer went on to stress that Yemen’s health system is in shambles, salaries have not been paid for at least 10 months, rubbish is piling up in the streets, and hospitals, water stations and other vital infrastructure have been attacked and destroyed by the Saudis. He noted that about 400,000 people have been infected by cholera, a figure which may increase as the rainy season begins.
