Q&A: Yemen’s Humanitarian Catastrophe Demands Action

For more than three years, Yemen has been plunged into a war of unspeakable horror—fueled in part by a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia and supported by the United States and its allies.

After years of limited progress, the global community must take action today to end the fighting and help bring the perpetrators of crimes against humanity to justice. The time to act is now; history is watching, and Yemen can’t wait.
