UN, Red Cross Evacuate Staff From Yemen Port City Ahead Of "Imminent" US-Saudi Coalition Assault

The New York Times reports that the United Nations is pulling its staff from the besieged Yemeni port city of Al Hudaydah as a massive assault on the country's only major humanitarian lifeline appears imminent.

UN staff have played a key role in delivering foreign aid through what is now one of the besieged country's only humanitarian access points to the outside world, through which 80% of all humanitarian aid flows.

The NYT details that the UN evacuation comes after "member countries were told that an attack by forces led by the United Arab Emirates was imminent, according to two diplomats briefed on the matter."

Houthi and other allied Yemeni tribal forces have held the port city of 600,000 for the last two years after ousting the Saudi backed government in Sanaa three years ago. The Saudi-US military coalition currently besieging the country through airstrikes and sea blockade claims Al Hudaydah is a key arms smuggling point through which Iran supplies the Shia Houthis, including sophisticated ballistic missiles which have hit locations inside Saudi Arabia within the past year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This attack will mean the nail in the coffin for Houthi resistance in Yemen; let the US-enabled, Saudi slaughter of innocent Yemeni people continue!!

Forgive my sarcasm here, but I wish that both Mike and I were young enough, and prosperous enough, to imigrate to a country which does not commit, or enable, war crimes; unfortunately, that is not going to happen for us.

We cannot morally accept, or support, the war crimes done by this country around the world, and are ashamed of a government which is no longer responding to the needs and concerns of We the People; truth be told, we are rapidly approaching a time for this country, where the center cannot hold.

And we have a companion piece on this, datelined yesterday, from moonoveralabama.com:

US Grants Approval for Genocide

The article goes on to state: "The genocide in Yemen is going to start tomorrow. Eight million are already on the brink of starvation. Eighteen out of twenty-six million Yemenis live in the mountainous heartlands (green) which are under control of the Houthi and their allies. They are surrounded by Saudi and U.A.E. forces and their mercenaries. There is little agriculture. The only supply line from the outside world will soon be cut off. The people will starve."
