Vergessener Konflikt: Der Jemen ist ein verwüstetes Land

„Just over a year ago, a Saudi-led coalition started a major offensive in Yemen in support of the country’s embattled President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi. The coalition airstrikes are aimed at pushing back the Shiite Houthi rebels, who swept down from northern Yemen in 2014 and took control of major portions of the country. But it’s not just two warring sides – southern separatists and powerful tribes also have a stake in the fight. And an al-Qaida branch and a burgeoning ISIS affiliate have benefited from the violence. And Yemen’s civilians have been caught in the middle with disastrous consequences. ‚The infrastructure, the health structure, the education structure and, in many ways, more importantly, the social structure have just been devastated,‘ former U.S ambassador to Yemen Barbara Bodine told NPR’s Michele Kelemen. UNICEF has released a new report detailing the impact of the war on the 11.5 million children in the region’s poorest country.“ (Die Journalistin Merrit Kennedy auf der Website des National Public Radio: „The Deadly Consequences To Children Of Yemen’s War“)
