Sanaa, August 2 (RHC)-- In Yemen, international aid agencies are warning of the risk of another cholera outbreak, after U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrikes destroyed water and sanitation facilities in the besieged port city of Hodeidah.
U.N. World Food Program country director Stephen Anderson also says more than 8 million Yemenis are now experiencing extreme hunger as a result of the ongoing conflict.
Anderson told reporters: “More than anything else now, the Yemeni people now desperately need peace. With peace and stability, we can start to get people back on their feet, start to rebuild their livelihoods.”
