Today, after 1000 days of surviving through barbaric war scenario, Yemeni’s prayed for a peaceful 2018. Even though the world’s harshest humanitarian crisis has struck upon Yemen, no humanitarian aid has reached them yet. Despite facing the world’s fury, the Yemeni’s still believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but sadly, the tunnel itself has been blown apart.
War crimes conducted by several groups, including Houthi rebels and Hadi loyalists in the name of geopolitical agendas has led Yemen to famine conditions due to no sanitization minus humanitarian aid and persistent missiles, airstrikes, and several other bombings.
Since the war both, began and worsened, thousands have been massacred while millions were displaced after losing their homes. Building that withstood years of developments couldn’t bear the blow of Houthi bombs and coalition strikes launched against them.
Tragically, a land that owns proven crude oil reserves worth billions, is all about ‘blood and bombs’ today, said a resident of Sana’a. Nevertheless, the blame game is on, shifting the accusations of life loss and putting Yemen on the edge of extinction from Houthis, Arab coalition, to Iran to Western nations supplying weaponries.
At the end, the ones who suffer are innocent Yemeni’s, bright children, a beautiful civilization, and an oil-gas rich reserve. Despite experiencing a war that has no ends, Yemeni’s believe waking up to a “2018 with peace and end of aggression”. If miracles do happen, Yemen desperately needs one.
