The shocking figures of 5,000 dead children in nearly 3 years of war and 1.8 million with acute malnourishment is caused by the Saudi air campaign and blockade on the Arab world’s poorest country.
However, despite this fact, the United Nations refused to mention that the Saudi-led campaign against Yemen is responsible for these shocking figures.
Although it called for children to be protected, it never called for Saudi Arabia to stop causing this tragedy, demonstrating the ineffectiveness of the United Nations.
