At the four year anniversary of the Saudi war on Yemen as many as 56,000 Yemeni, mainly civilians, have been killed in the conflict fueled by arms from the United Kingdom, United States and France.

The United Nations has categorized the situation in Yemen as the world’s current worst humanitarian crisis.

In what factions thought would be a six month conflict has instead dragged on for four years that, according to the British-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), has left some 56,000 dead, and another 60,000 injured.

Dubbed as the “Forgotten War,” the Yemeni civil war started on March 26, 2015, when Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates led a coalition of countries in a military campaign against Ansar Allah (Houthi) rebels in Yemen in support of the Saudi-backed government of Abd-Rabu Mansour Hadi.
