"The Saudi siege: a war crime and a genocide" is the title of the seventh official report published by Yemen's Ministry of Human Rights in the capital Sana'a.

The report highlights the impact of the Saudi blockade on the humanitarian situation in Yemen.

Officials say the Saudi-led coalition has committed thousands of war crimes against Yemeni women and children during seven years of war. 

They also say Riyadh’s breach of international law is covered up politically by the United Nations.

Saudi Arabia, backed by Washington, launched a deadly war on Yemen in March 2015, killing tens of thousands of civilians, including women and children. The United Nations describes war-torn Yemen as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, but has taken no action to end this humanitarian catastrophe.

Observers say Saudi Arabia is still committing war crimes as it refuses to lift the siege on the country, depriving millions of Yemenis of food and medicine, and costing more lives, especially among patients, amid the collapse of the health sector and the continued closure of Sana'a airport.
