Reduced to skin and bones by civil war: Twelve-year-old girl weighs just 22 pounds - the same as a typical toddler - as Yemen fighting drives people to the brink of famine

These heartwrenching images of a 12-year-old starving girl, so weak she has to be carried by her sister, shows just one of millions of victims of Yemen's civil war.

Fatima Qoba weighs just 22lbs - no more than an average toddler - and years of starvation has left her with paper-thin skin stretched over her bones.

She is receiving treatment at a malnutrition clinic in Hajjah, northwest Yemen, after her desperate sibling brought her there, fearing she would die.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WARNING: VERY GRUESOME GRAPHICS HERE: One has to wonder; is this the "good behaviour" of the US military in the Middle East with which Vice-President tried to pummel his captive audience in Warsaw to try to turn them turn against Iran?!?

Please remember; this is not a civil war; it is a Saudi Arabian war against Yemenite insurgents, aided and abetted by the US military. Famine; death, and disease are what the people of Yemen are left with, after three years int his conflict.

Children die regularly from being shot at by Saudi Arabian fighters in schools, hospitals, and public markets; the US is actively working with the Saudis blockading the Yemeni ports, insuring that no food can get in, so kids like this child starve to death, if they do not get treated. Children are also dying of cholera, because, thanks to the US/Saudi destruction of clean water resources, (and the fact that this cholera may well have been weaponised), any water they get is not clean.

When you look at this child, don't think of her as "collateral damage"; she is a human being, and witness to US enabled Saudi war crimes Yemen.

Talk to your Congressional Representative, and send the image to them; ask them when this madness will stop. Because, Constitutionally, it is only Congress which can approve war.

But with Yemen they didn't
