U.S. and Saudis Causing Hundreds of Thousands of Children to Starve to Death In Yemen

The United States is a major backer and supporter of the Saudi-led war against Yemen.  The U.S. supplies the weapons, and provides most of the targeting and military tactics.  See thisthisthisthis,this and this.  (And see this for background on the Yemen war.)
The Saudi and American military are committing war crimes left and right …
For example, a report from the United Nations Children’s Fund notes:
Attacks on schools and hospitals and the denial of humanitarian assistance to children continue to occur. The UN verified 51 attacks on education facilities, including schools and personnel.
Human Rights Watch reports:
“Even after dozens of airstrikes on markets, schools, hospitals, and residential neighborhoods have killed hundreds of Yemeni civilians, the coalition refuses to provide redress or change its practices,” [Human Rights Watch] said. “The US and others should pull the plug on arms to the Saudis or further share responsibility for civilian lives lost.”
