The WHO announced Friday that nearly 73,700 people have been affected by Yemen's cholera epidemic.

Saudi warplanes struck a health facility in Northwest Yemen treating patients for cholera Saturday night, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network reported, killing and injuring a number of people.

In addition, UNICEF warned Saturday that the cases of cholera could double every two weeks, unless more aid is delivered to the region ravaged by the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war. The official warned that the outbreak could potentially "spread beyond Yemen" as the imperialist aggression enters well beyond its third year.

"It is sad today, but we hope the cholera outbreak will be the turning point in turning people's attention to Yemen," he stated. "Cholera is not going to be stopped by any border."

Despite calls for aid, assistance to Yemenis amid the war proves challenging, given reports that the Saudi-led coalition has previously targeted the country's main port of Hodeidah, obstructing attempts to import much-needed food, medical and fuel supplies.

Russia submits draft resolution to UNSC on Yemen crisis amid Saudi-led airstrikes



As the fighting in Yemen intensifies, Russia has submitted a draft resolution to the UN Security Council that calls for a humanitarian pause to the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes in an effort to quell the violence that is impacting civilians.

Russia submitted the draft resolution during a closed emergency UNSC meeting that finished late on Saturday.

Russia insists it is necessary for the international community to discuss the establishment of regular and mandatory “humanitarian pauses” in the ongoing coalition air strikes on Yemen, Russian UN mission’s spokesman Aleksey Zaytsev told Sputnik.

#Saudi PR said their resolution also involves pauses but is “more comprehensive” than Russia's. Meeting is over: US has left

The Security Council’s President for April, Dina Kawar of Jordan, confirmed receiving Russia’s draft, adding that the UN peacekeeping body will consider the proposal.

“The Russian delegation circulated a draft resolution to the council members regarding humanitarian pauses in Yemen and expressed concerns over the humanitarian situation in Yemen...council members need time to reflect on the Russian proposal,” Kawar told a press conference.
