Food shipments insufficient to stop Yemen "humanitarian catastrophe"

30.11.2017 09:17 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) Food shipments which are beginning to re-enter war-torn Yemen following a three-week Saudi blockade, are not enough so far to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, UN Radio reports. As to the report, the Saudi-led coalition, which is battling Houthi rebels for control of the country, closed all access to Yemen following a rocket attack on the Saudi capital. However, aid flights have started again at the weekend, and two commercial vessels carrying food have arrived at the port of Hodaidah, with wheat and flour on board. In meanwhile, three other ships carrying vital food shipments are awaiting Saudi permission to enter the port. «Our humanitarian colleagues tell us that, while some food has started to reach Yemen, it is not sufficient to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe. In Yemen itself, the cost of diesel as doubled, while the price of petrol has risen by more than 70 percent and cooking gas by 18 percent. It is critical that fuel reaches all Yemeni ports immediately — fuel is essential to operate generators for hospitals and water pumps, as well as to deliver drinking water and food,» UN Spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric admits.
