All ongoing conflicts are inhumane, unfair and unjust not alone in their executions, but more so based upon the identity of the actual victims of the violence - the children.
As a result, humanity has been failing millions of children from Syria to Yemen, to Iraq, to Central Africa Republic, to Nigeria, to Democratic Republic of the Congo, to Libya and elsewhere. While aid agencies and humanitarian groups have stretched and extended assistance to many child victims and other civilians, not enough children are being saved.
If one child becomes a victim of a conflict, then that one child represents too many falling victims in any conflict. The dire conditions of Syria's children, Nigeria's children, South Sudan's children, Central Africa Republic's children and many others, are well known. Yet, today, humanity is confronted by another festering tragedy of conflict as hundreds of thousands of Yemeni children suffer starvation and malnutrition because of the civil war in that country. Some 370,000 Yemeni children are in danger of starving, according to a report by the BBC-News.
Humanity must find the onus and the priority to safeguard and to rescue each and every child from the pangs of war. Children must never be held responsible for nor be punished for the failings of adults. Humanitarian access, operation and evacuation must be safely allowed in all zones of conflict. Yemen's children deserve a chance.
