American Center for Justice (ACJ) calls for an end to the human suffering of Yemenis

American Center for Justice (ACJ) is following with great concern the severe humanitarian crisis in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a and the Houthi-controlled areas due to the absence of oil derivatives and domestic gas in the official stations and the increase in their price on the black market to several times its official price.

Today, the price of a gallon of (20) liters, on the black market, has reached the equivalent of ($60) while hundreds of cars and tankers have accumulated in front of gas stations for five days to obtain 40 liters of gasoline. The high prices of oil derivatives have doubled the suffering of civilians. This led to an increase in the prices of basic materials such as wheat, rice, milk and oils by 60%.

The American Center for Justice (ACJ) holds the Houthis primarily responsible for the suffering of citizens in the 12 governorates they control, after they had been proven through a lot of evidence, including the report of the UN Panel of Experts that they constantly create these crises for two purposes: to obtain funds in order to support the war effort and to supplement the fighting fronts with the money they earn from the black market, as well as increasing humanitarian suffering in front of local and international public opinion and exploiting this for political purposes without any regard for the consequences of these practices on the humanitarian situation and its tragic increase.

The Center believes that the legitimate government bears the responsibility for abandoning its citizens and leaving them to face hunger and the abuses and violations of the Houthi group, without taking any steps to end or alleviate this suffering. The Arab coalition, which is a partner of the government, is not exempted from the responsibility for the suffering of Yemenis and the consequences of what is happening in Yemen are necessarily due to it, especially since it intervened to support legitimacy and restore the state seven years ago.

The American Center for Justice (ACJ) calls on the international community to take full responsibility for Yemeni people who are dying silently every day as a part of their duty and moral obligations is to work in all ways and means to stop the suffering of Yemenis and bring these complex crises into an end.
