The Causes of Cholera

The spread of cholera in Yemen is due to the country’s devastated infrastructure, water and sanitation systems and facilities caused by Saudi-led coalition air strikes in the ongoing conflict between the two countries. The outbreak is on an "unprecedented scale", according to the World Health Organization and is a result of the ongoing war headed by the Saudi-led coalition against the Houthis in Yemen since 2015.
