Sanaa, May 18 (RHC)-- In Yemen, rescue workers pulled a bloodied young girl from the rubble of her home in Sanaa after an airstrike by the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition killed both her parents and all four of her siblings.
The latest Saudi-led strikes came as the United Nations Children’s Fund warned that four years of U.S.-backed Saudi attacks have left at least 7,300 children killed or seriously injured.
UNICEF’s Executive Director Henrietta Fore said: “Each day, another eight children will be killed, injured or recruited to the fighting. Every 10 minutes, another child will die from a preventable cause.
Like a lack of food, with 360,000 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. In fact, half the children under five years old in Yemen — 2.5 million — are stunted. And stunting is irreversible. … Yemen is a test of our humanity. And right now, we are badly failing this test.”
