The brutal military campaign against Yemen was started in Yemen by Saudi Arabia in 2015. Three years of Saudi-led assaults and strikes and a long-term blockade of Yemen has put the country on the verge of collapse. Saudi-led coalition strikes killed thousands of civilians in different cities of Yemen and left the citizens with famine, cholera, and numerous other societal crises.
