Yemen a Country of death Due to War

July 17,2017
This is a US – Saudi war. Countries that sell weapons to the Saudis should be ashamed.
Good information at this link
 An interview with UN representative.

The conflict in Yemen, which escalated in 2015, has displaced some three million people. Tens of thousands of those forced to leave their homes are in the region of Abs, Hajjah governorate, close to the frontlines and the border with Saudi Arabia.
Abs is also the epicentre of the cholera outbreak that has caused more than 1,600 deaths and affected more than 269,000 people since late March 2017. MSF began supporting Abs Hospital, the main medical facility in the western part of Hajjah governorate, in 2015.
On 15 August 2016, an airstrike hit the hospital, killing 19 people and wounding 24 others. MSF withdrew its staff but resumed activities at the hospital in November 2016. Since the outbreak of cholera, MSF has doubled the scale of its emergency response in Abs district, where teams have treated more than 12,200 patients with suspected cholera and acute watery diarrhoea.
Fear of being caught up in the fighting has led many displaced people in Abs to set up informal settlements in remote locations with no public services. MSF is operating mobile clinics offering regular consultations, emergency treatment, antenatal care and mental healthcare to people living in these settlements, where sanitation is poor and water is scarce. http://www.msf.org/en/article/photo-gallery-abs-reflection-yemen-crisis
There is also a lot more information at the Doctors without Borders site. http://www.msf.org/en/news?f[0]=im_field_taxonomy_country%3A1191

The manipulation of news and the distortion of reality are the most powerful weapons in the hands of power. They can make a whole reality disappear.

A child dies in Yemen every ten minutes from preventable causes, UNICEF reported in June. These deaths are only part of a humanitarian catastrophe, among the worst in the world, including a rampaging cholera epidemic, to which the witness of the overwhelming majority of the West’s warmongering Goebbelist media pretends to be deaf, mute, and blind.

Nevertheless, information is accessible. There are sporadic exceptions to the conspiracy of silence in officialdom and the media. The week of July 10, The Independent published in the “Voices” section the appeal of Wael Ibrahim, an aid worker in Yemen:

“It is going to take years to restore any infrastructure like health services, and rewire the city [Sana’a] for electricity. We need more people to talk about Yemen.”  For the rest of the story go HERE
