War, Blockade Taking Lives of Yemeni Children: Sana’a PM
The Prime Minister of Sana’a-based government, Dr. Abdulaziz Saleh bin Habtoor, said on Saturday that children are the most group affected by “the Saudi-Emirati war and siege.”
During his participation in the event organized by the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood on the occasion of International Children’s Day under the slogan “Our Childhood Between Bombing and Siege”, Dr. bin Habtoor confirmed that “the Saudi-led coalition’s targeting of childhood in Yemen represents an attack on the future of the country.”
According to Houthis-run Saba News Agency, The Prime Minister explained that a lot of children have been deprived of many basic rights such as education, health, food, and others as a result of the war and siege.
The national and international figures and statistics on the reality of childhood in Yemen are horrific, especially concerning the number of deaths, especially premature infants, thousands of whom die every day, he added.
In this regard, Dr. bin Habtoor denounced the shameful international stances regarding what childhood is being subjected to in Yemen as a result of brutal war against Yemeni people.
“The United States of America does not care about the killing of millions of children in Yemen or other countries of the world, or the destruction of world peace resulting from its ongoing battles, because it simply does not concern itself with anything other than imposing its hegemony on others,” he said.
He indicated that the Yemeni people “are not facing the “aggression coalition and its mercenaries” for the seventh year, because they love war, but are fighting a battle that was imposed on them, and seek to liberate their national decision and get rid of guardianship and interference in their affairs.”
