War and Siege Push Yemenis to “Eat Leaves
World Food Program revealed that the starvation resulting from Saudi war on Yemen and its siege pushed Yemeni citizens to “eat tree leaves.”
The program said in a tweet: “The motives of Yemeni crisis represented by the conflict and economic deterioration do not show any signs of retreat, leading to increased hunger, this is what prompts families in Yemen to resort to harsh measures, like eating tree leaves to survive. “
This revelation coincided with the worst humanitarian crisis in the modern era experienced by the Yemeni people, in which the Saudi war on Yemen in 2015 was the main cause, as well as a harmful siege on the country through sea, land and air.
