US / Saudi War in Yemen Stopping Medication From Getting to Cancer Patients

Notice how Reuters basically omits US complicity in this atrocity.  They talk about the “Saudi-led coalition” but don’t mention who’s financing and arming it.

Thousands of cancer patients in Yemen are being forced to seek life-saving medicines on the black market as the health system buckles after two years of war.The conflict between the armed Houthi movement and a Saudi-led military coalition has killed over 10,000 people and triggered a slow-motion economic collapse, forcing health staff to work without pay and undercutting patients’ ability to afford their own treatment.

For patients of the National Oncology Center, who often wait hours to receive their chemotherapy treatment, hope has evaporated along with their livelihoods.
