Already in 2016, Oxfam warned that “Yemen is being slowly starved to death” due inter alia to Saudi “shipping restrictions”. oxfam.org.uk/media-centre/p… The response of the UK Government at that time was flat denial: “There is no blockade in Yemen” theyworkforyou.com/wrans/?id=2016…
Professor Martha Mundy is a leading expert on Yemen. She warned already in 2016 that “the Saudis are deliberately striking at agricultural infrastructure in order to destroy the civil society” independent.co.uk/news/world/mid… (See also: salon.com/2016/10/27/fam…)
A new study by Prof Mundy finds that from August 2016 -- just the period when the UK Government assured that "There is no blockade in Yemen" and urged "faith in Saudi Arabia" -- the Saudis shifted to "economic war and sealing off of the
country" sites.tufts.edu/wpf/files/2018…
The study highlights UK, US and French "support for economic war – the major cause of starvation" in #Yemen sites.tufts.edu/wpf/files/2018…
