More than 10,000 people have been martyred in the war on Yemen. This week, the United States became more directly involved in the conflict, which already included Saudi Arabia and the Ansarullah revolutionaries.

How the US Became More Involved in the War in Yemen

The Americans are providing targeting intelligence and refueling Saudi warplanes involved in bombing Yemeni revolutionaries' areas. But coalition strikes have also destroyed hospitals, markets and residential neighborhoods, claiming the lives of large numbers of civilians.

Last Saturday, airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition killed more than 100 people at a funeral in Sanaa. A total of more than 10,000 people have been martyred in the war, according to the United Nations, and the threat to civilians has increased since the collapse of peace talks in August.

After the allegations that the Ansarullah launched two failed missile attacks at an American warship in the Red Sea, another American vessel destroyed three radar installations in Yemen.

It was the first direct military engagement by the United States in the Yemen war. Although the Obama administration has been pushing for a deal to end the increasingly deadly conflict, it was quietly supporting the Saudi-led air campaign against the impoverished country.

The aid group Doctors Without Borders [MSF] withdrew from six hospitals in northern Yemen after several of its facilities were attacked in Saudi airstrikes.
