More Yemeni children die as medicine prices skyrocket

Tehran, Oct 26, IRNA -- Spiraling inflation in Yemen has nearly doubled the cost of feeding a family, while at the same time halving incomes.

Medicine prices have soared as well, with some people unable to buy any at all and others forced to buy and take less than they need, according to Al-Jazeera.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing back the government of Hadi back to power and crushing the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Some 16,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

The assaults of the Saudi-led coalition forces have failed to stop the Yemenis from resisting the aggression. Recently, the Yemeni army unveiled its home-made underground missile launching pads.
