Doctors have blamed Saudi Arabia for cholera outbreak in Yemen.

According to Lancet magazine, cholera outbreak, which was recorded recently in Yemen, is the result of the Saudi military policy aimed destabilizing the situation in the region.

Jonathan Kennedy from Queen Mary University of London said: “Saudi-led airstrikes have destroyed vital infrastructure, including hospitals and public water systems, hit civilian areas, and displaced people into crowded and insanitary conditions. As the Saudi-led coalition has played a key role in the collapse of Yemen’s infrastructure, it is bizarre that UNICEF recently published a press release welcoming Saudi Arabian ‘generosity’ after the Kingdom donated US$67 million to the cholera response in Yemen.”

“Saudi Arabia is an ally of the UK and USA. American and British companies supply Saudi Arabia with huge amounts of military equipment and their armed forces provide logistical support and intelligence to Riyadh. This backing has made the Saudi-led airstrikes and blockade possible, and therefore the UK and USA have played a crucial role in creating conditions conducive to the spread of cholera.”
