The Saudi-led coalition of states which have agreed to intervene in Yemen has now been bombing the country for more than 3 weeks. Unfortunately, while the number and the intensity of the strikes have been steadily increasing, the international community appears to have lost interest. Within this apathy, nobody is hurt more than the civilians.
While there has been a push by the UN and the Red Cross/Red Crescent to deliver some humanitarian aid into the country, the overall situation has gone into steep decline. In a previous article (Yemen: A Uniquely Failed State) we already covered the tragic and precarious lack of basic resources in the country, and now, as we had predicted, things have gone from bad to much much worse.
