In a statement, the Council affirmed that the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Yemen is the result of a deliberate action by the US-Saudi aggression, which led to the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
The statement called on the UN to provide aid to the millions of affected people in Yemen, to contribute to alleviating human suffering.
The statement holds the US-Saudi aggression responsible for using the humanitarian aspect as a war card to starve the Yemeni People, stop funding and put pressure on the UN to reduce aid.
In Julay, the World Food Program announced it had to cut rations for more than 10 million Yemenis due to a lack of funding, warning that it might have to take additional steps.
Data distributed by the program showed that food imports to Hodeidah ports decreased by 28% during the first five months of this year.
A recent report by the UN program warned of the need for close monitoring in the coming months, in light of the low levels of imports, saying that since the launch of the Black Sea Initiative, eight ships of Ukrainian wheat have arrived in Yemen.
It stated that due to the severe and persistent funding shortage, the program had to transfer more than 900,000 beneficiaries of cash-based assistance to in-kind assistance.
The US-Saudi aggression imposes a suffocating blockade on Yemen and closes ports and airports to increase the suffering of the Yemeni People and create deteriorating living and economic conditions. It is trying to barter the humanitarian aspect to obtain political and military gains at the expense of the Yemeni People.
The blockade has caused tremendous suffering for millions of Yemenis who are largely dependent on imports of food, fuel and medicines. It is one of the main reasons for the large-scale humanitarian crisis in the country that has pushed millions of Yemenis toward starvation and death due to lack of medical supplies, prompting the UN to call it the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
In January, a statement issued by 172 international human rights networks and organizations called for stopping the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen and lifting the siege.
The international organizations' statement expressed concern about the continued exacerbation of human suffering in light of the catastrophic escalating threat to more than 20 million Yemeni citizens of starvation.
The statement stressed that the exacerbation of human suffering in Yemen was accompanied by the interruption of salaries and the continuation of restrictions imposed on ports and airports.
"The human conscience must not ignore the suffering of the Yemeni People as a result of war, siege, hunger, disease and death," the statement stated, noting that it is necessary to respond to the repeated humanitarian calls issued by the vital sectors in Yemen, especially the health sector.
The statement of the international organizations called on the countries involved in aggression to quickly pay the salaries of employees in all governorates, and to lift the blockade, especially on Sana'a airport and the port of Hodeidah.
