“When I read the report that fighting was resumed I was very much concerned about that,” Ban told reporters. “I sincerely hope there will be an end of fighting as soon as possible.”
Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday that it would end almost a month of air strikes against the Iranian-allied Houthis but resumed operations on Wednesday. Last week Ban called for an immediate ceasefire by all parties in Yemen.

Now that the defense industry in the United States has taken a bit of a budgeting hit at home, they’re getting more aggressive overseas. Defense contractors are opening satellite offices and selling arms as fast as they can into the chaos of the Middle East.
Between the fight against ISIS and the war in Yemen, more Arab countries are getting into the act and using their arsenals. US companies are supplying the planes, bombs, missiles and other weapons everywhere from Libya and Iraq to Yemen and Pakistan. We’ve got a very busy little military industrial complex these days.
It’s nothing new that the United States is the biggest arms dealer in the world, I just think it’s worth noting that we have a hand in nearly every war currently under way. What looks like crazy countries battling over religion, politics or resources far away from our shores, is closer to home when you peel back the layers to find out who is supplying those weapons.
Civilian casualties mount as Saudi-led airstrikes continue in Yemen: here.
