Yemeni Health Ministry: thousands of patients dying due to continued blockade

The Yemeni Ministry of Public Health and Population said on Thursday that thousands of Yemenis are still dying as a result of the blockade and the continuation of maritime piracy on oil derivatives ships by the US-Saudi aggression coalition.

The ministry warned, in a statement, that these irresponsible actions by the aggression coalition herald a humanitarian catastrophe, as the hospitals and health centers depend primarily on fuel to provide their medical and treatment services.”

The statement noted that “there is no justification for these actions, except the demonic desire of the aggression countries’ leaders to kill the Yemeni people.”

The ministry considered the preventing of the arrival of oil derivatives a “real disaster for dialysis patients, as it will lead to stopping the dialysis machines in the capital and the provinces, which means their inevitable death.”

The ministry affirmed that “the shameful silence of the United Nations and its bias of aggression, despite its explicit recognition of the worsening of human suffering due to severe shortages of fuel supplies, contradict the charters for which the United Nations was established and the basic principles of protection and humanitarian relief.”
