The little child ‘A. M. is lying ill in Al-Sabaeen Hospital in Sana’a, twirling and writhing with pain. He can neither sleep, nor eat well, as he is malnourished. The respirators next to him are about to stop working as the hospital is running out of fuel. His parents are very distressed and worried about him, as they have heard that one of Sana’a major hospitals has stopped due to lack of fuel and the fate of patients remains unknown.
There are bleak scenes looming over the patients in hospitals, especially children and patients with heart diseases, renal failure, and pneumonia. All of them are at risk of death because hospitals are running out of fuel. The hospital in which this child is admitted is about to stop, which warns of a great humanitarian catastrophe that would result in thousands of deaths.
“Why the United Nations is silent about this tragedy? Where is its humanitarian role? What is the fault of patients and hospitals so that the Saudi coalition prevents fuel from them?” the child’s father wonders with great disappointment and despair. This is a crime against humanity, and the United Nations shall bear responsibility for this tragedy.
