Saudi Arabia on Thursday, announced a 500 million dollars donation to civil war victims of Yemen.

According to Arab media, the amount of donation has been handed over to the concerned departments on the orders of Saudi King Khadim ul Harmain Shareefain Salman bin Abdulaziz, to help the citizens of Yemen, who have become a major victim of civil wars.

The statement was made by the Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs Ibrahim bin Abdulaziz Al-Assaf during a conference on the “humanitarian response in Yemen”, organized at the sidelines of the 74th General Assembly session in New York.

Al-Assaf said that the Yemeni nation does not deserve the suffering it has endured at the hands of Houthis.

The international community should take a serious stance against the militia because of the dire humanitarian crisis they have caused in Yemen, the minister said.

The Yemeni Civil War is an ongoing conflict that began in 2015. Yemenis were deprived of water, food, and electricity as a result of the conflict.

Earlier this week, Five civilians were killed in air attacks by the Saudi-led coalition in Omran province in Yemen.

According to Houthi-owned TV Channel, five civilians from one family were killed in air attacks by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

Two children from the same family were missing, the report said, and rescuers were searching the rubble of the building.

Last week, Drone attacks set Saudi Arabia’s two major oil facilities of Aramco on fire.

According to details, First drone hit Abqaiq, site of Aramco’s largest oil processing plant, while a second drone attack started fires in the Khurais oilfield.

Security teams controlled the fire, which caused massive loss.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday telephoned Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman after attacks on two Saudi Aramco plants, including the world’s biggest oil processing facility.

Both the leaders discussed the situation after the recent drone attacks on the oil fields.
