USA strengthens position in Yemen

The increased American presence happens following the escalation of violence in the country. The United States says the Iranians are arming and supporting the Houthis what worsens the situation in the country.

This Monday, a coalition air strike led by Saudi Arabia, the Yemeni capital, killed at least 25 people and injured nearly 400. The explosion happened near the Presidential Palace and several embassies.

The humanitarian situation in the country worsens. Hundreds of people fleeing the war, are refugees in Djibouti, one of the fields supported by foreign organizations:

"Our teams are supporting tens of thousands of people in Yemen, despite the war, and we are giving food aid to people who are fleeing the conflict", said Chaliss McDonough of the world food programme.
