Millions of children face starvation in Yemen warns United Nations – BBC News

There’s a stark warning tonight that millions of children in Yemen could be pushed to “the brink of starvation” unless international aid is dramatically stepped up. It comes from UNICEF, the United Nations children’s organisation.

Yemen faces the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with the coronavirus pandemic compounding the effect of five years of civil war.

… It is backed by a Saudi-led coalition which is supported by the US and the UK.

2 million of Yemen’s children are malnourished, and 1.7 million have been forced to flee their homes. A child dies every 10 minutes from a preventable disease.

Reeta Chakrabarti presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen.

TRUMP’S PARTING GIFT: A WORSE YEMEN CATASTROPHE Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering designating the Houthis, the Yemeni militia that rules over the vast majority of the country’s population, as a terrorist organization. The move would fit the Trump administration’s strategy to weaken Iran … and thrill Iranian adversaries like Saudi Arabia. It would push millions of people in Yemen into starvation and prolong the country’s civil war. Biden would find it extremely difficult to reverse the designation. [HuffPost]

JEWISH GROUP JOINS FIGHT AGAINST TRUMP ARMS SALE J Street, a prominent Jewish American organization working on Middle East issues, is pushing to stop Trump from sending $23 billion in military arms and equipment to the United Arab Emirates. “The sale of a massive quantity of such destructive weapons systems to the UAE would only further fuel an escalating arms race in a region already suffering from destabilizing wars that endanger civilians and undermine U.S. interests,” J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami told HuffPost.
