250+ humanitarian agencies in Yemen – most of them Yemeni – are reaching 12+ million people across the country every month. My update to the @UN  Security Council:

The Trump administration claims its arms sales sold to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will be used only by their militaries. Instead, US arms are ending up with Yemeni rebels they back, who are now fighting each other with them.

The conflict in Yemen is one of the world’s largest humanitarian catastrophes. The water-energy-food insecurity nexus is one of the causes and a continuing result of the current Yemeni conflict.

"We're surprised the Khashoggi case is getting so much attention while millions of Yemeni children are suffering," a doctor said. "Nobody gives a damn about them."

Behind the warplanes and weapons the UK supplies to Saudi Arabia, Dispatches investigates the thousands of British contractors helping keep the Saudi planes in the air. With so many Yemeni civilians being killed by Saudi Arabian airstrikes, is this Britain's hidden war?

@realDonaldTrump  wants to keep selling American weapons to his Saudi buddies. But he knows Congress won't approve selling to a regime that's bombed thousands of Yemeni civilians and murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi – so he's trying to go around us. 

The New York Post boycott, organized by Yemeni bodega owners, is also receiving support from some Uber and Lyft drivers in New York, who are helping spread the news about the boycott from one merchant to another:

May's silence during her visit to Saudi Arabia about the Yemen blockade & UK role in the war underlines her complicity in the Yemeni people's suffering. There must be an end to the blockade and UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia suspended while an independent investigation takes place

Saudi Arabia brutally murdered a journalist in its own consulate and bombed Yemeni civilians with US-armed warplanes. And if that wasn’t bad enough, it also may have transferred US weapons to violent extremists. It's time to start holding Saudi Arabia accountable.

Fascinating to watch what will allow the Saudis to do. Whether it’s killing Yemeni school children, or ‘accidentally’ murdering a reporter in their own consulate, it seems like they can do no wrong. I wonder why?

Abdullah Hassan, the 2-year-old son of a Yemeni woman who sued the Trump administration to let her into the country to be with the ailing boy, has died, an advocacy group said.

Jesus. Trump admin overturned an Obama-admin ban on selling precision-guided tech to the Saudis. We then sold missiles. One of those missiles was used in a Saudi air strike that killed 40 Yemeni kids.

I’m as outraged about #Kashoggi  as anyone. But for the last two years the United States has HELPED the Saudis kill thousands of Yemeni civilians, including scores of children, with impunity. Isn’t that worse? Like much worse?
