Trump Urge Saudi Arabia Allow Humanitarian Assistance to Yemen

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]
