Yemen has once again slammed the United Nations for its double standard regarding the crimes committed by the Saudi-led coalition against Yemeni children.

"Children and Armed Conflict in Yemen 2021" was the title of the recent report of the Secretary-General of the United Nations.

In a press conference held by Yemen's Ministry of Human Rights, the Yemeni government discussed the UN report and how children should be protected.

The ministry said the report is full of inaccuracies and doesn't rely on any investigation on the ground, adding that the report aims to legitimize the Saudi war crimes against Yemeni children.

Saudi Arabia backed by Washington launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015.
Since then, Riyadh has committed numerous violations of international law including using internationally prohibited weapons in its air raids, which have killed tens of thousands of civilians, most of them women and children.

Besides the ongoing Saudi siege that prevents millions of Yemenis from getting food, medicine and fuel, Saudi airstrikes have also killed more than 4000 Yemeni children alone, according to rights organizations.
