The crisis in Yemen, in no small measure, is made in the USA and NATO countries, explains historian Gerald Horne. As ever, US foreign policy in Yemen is incoherent just as it is confused in Syria where it is pursuing a similar harebrained policy, he added.
Thousands of Yemenis have staged a mass rally in the capital Sanaa to protest against the Saudi bombing which recently entered its third year. They have also urged the Houthi rebel authorities to intensify the battle against the “5th column” and alleged Saudi spies.
Millions of people in Yemen are being “willfully starved” by both the warring parties on the ground and the foreign backers blocking supplies and aid, an Oxfam adviser told RT, calling on international community to urgently address the dire humanitarian crisis.
