With the support of the United States, the UAE, and several other countries, Saudi Arabia has launched a military invasion of Yemen since March 2015, putting a land, sea, and air siege on the impoverished country.

Saudi Arabia's warmongering in Yemen has so far killed hundreds of thousands of Yemenis, injured tens of thousands, and displaced millions.
