Yemen war results in starvation death for 85,000+ children less than 5 years old

According to an estimate submitted by Save the Children, about 85,000 children below 5-yeaars-old might have died from severe cases of hunger and disease post the escalation of Yemen war that started about 3 years ago.

Through a new analysis of data acquired by the UN, about 84,701 children that were below the age of 5 succumbed to cases of severe form of acute malnutrition that were left untreated. These grim numbers detail out the horrors happening in the world in terms of worst form of humanitarian crisis. Intense fighting yet again erupted at the strategic port based Hodeidah City at Yemen. The city is a particularly vital point of entry for the UN as well as similar humanitarian aid. It is also the center for conflict stemming from Saudi-led coalition backed by the US and Iranian-aligned Houthis.

This renewed violence actually follows the progress that aims at ending this 4 year long war. The conflict has managed to kill a minimum of 10,000 people while pushing the nation to its brink with worst famine that occurred in over 100 years. This left 14 million Yemen based population starving for proper nutrition. The children that die out of starvation tend to suffer a lot as all their major organs fail one after the other causing immense pain.
