The war in Yemen has resulted in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world to be happening right now. And it’s in part caued by the United States. Senator Chris Muprhy (Democrat – Connecticut) has been sounding the alarm about the crisis in Yemen but it’s taken recently for other members of Congress to wake up to the situation. In 2015, the Houthis took over Yemen, pushing out a government that was backed by Saudi Arabia. That created a civil war in the country that is on-going. Saudi Arabia is an ally of the United States, and as a result the U.S. has supported the Saudi campaign against the Houthis. The U.S. has sold bombs, tanks, and supplies to Saudi Arabia, helped the country pick targets in Yemen, and until recently helped them refuel bomb-dropping planes in mid-air. The war has allowed groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS to grow. The humanitarian crisis inside Yemen is growing worse as the civil war rages on. Chris Murphy says most of the humanitarian crisis has been caused by Saudi Arabia that is supported by the United States. Murphy is calling on Congress to stop the U.S. from supporting Saudi Arabia in this war.
