Mission impossible: avoid a coronavirus outbreak in Yemen

19 4 3

Analysis. On the five-year anniversary of the start of the war in Yemen, medical teams there report no coronavirus cases, and flights to and from the capital have been suspended. An outbreak there would devastate the civilian population even further.

Five years ago, on March 25, 2015, a coalition of Saudi-led Sunni countries launched Operation Resolute Storm against the Houthi movement in Yemen.

It started one of the most brutal wars of this millennium, which devastated the poorest country in the Gulf, its social structure, infrastructure, healthcare and education system. According to data from the Houthi Army, over 257,000 air raids have been carried out by the coalition in Yemen since March 2015.
