The turmoil in the middle east is still boiling as new study released by the UN estimates 13 million people.(Total population 27 million) are at risk of starvation as massive famine is predict to hit the country.
Yemen is on the brink of a historic famine that could put as many as 13 million people at risk of death by starvation, the United Nations warns.
Lise Grande, the UN’s humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, issued the warning in an interview with the BBC yesterday. Grande said the fierce fighting between Saudi-backed government forces and Houthi rebels, and the ongoing blockade of aid shipments, have created the conditions for humanitarian disaster on a scale not seen since Ethiopia in the 1980s or the Soviet Union in the 1930s.
