President Donald Trump has ordered officials to urge Saudi Arabia to allow fuel, food and medicine to be delivered to Yemen.
In a brief statement Wednesday (6/12), Trump said, "This must be immediately "
The Saudi-led coalition launched a ground and air attack to remove the Houthi rebels from Yemen.
Saudi Arabia imposed a blockade on all Yemeni ports last month after the Houthi rebels fired a missiles near Ryadh.
The blockade has been loosened to allow some humanitarian aid into Yemen, but Saudi Arabia tightened restrictions on commercial shipments resulting in a severe fuel shortage.
Fuel shortages mean generators used to pump drinking water, operate the hospital, and cook food not working. [ds]
