Saudi Arabia’s invasion in Yemen and striking different parts of the country with missiles started with civil destructions but kept up with social and medical crises in the country.

Reports indicate that since the outbreak of Cholera in Yemen in April, attempt to get the disease under control have all been in vain. Thousands have been inflicted and around 1,900 lost their lives according to local sources.

The disastrous condition in Yemen started after the country was besieged by Saudi Arabia and its allies. No international support or helps in the form of food or drugs are allowed to reach the Yemenis. The strikes targeted multiple hospitals in the country. Besides, a major number of the hospitals are also closed due to lack of staff and drugs.

Malnutrition and medical crisis which were caused by the long-time strikes and blockade by Saudis, proved, in turn, the cause of the breakout of extensive Cholera. Public sources of water are polluted and people have no other source to be supplied with.

Analysts believe that the strikes are turning to the secondary cause of civilian casualties with cholera and nutritional disaster proving more damaging. As Adam Baron, a Yemeni expert says:

The key thing to remember is that while combat deaths continue to get more attention, it is the indirect results of the conflict – things like the cholera outbreak, the hunger crisis and the rise of deaths from preventable disease – that remain the largest killers.

The war broke out in 2015 with Saudi Arabia attacking the country backed by US forces. Ansarullah’s compromise with the central government and taking over the capital was one of the main instigations of the violent invasion.
