Yemeni civilians are suffering under the Saudi-led airstrikes and the sea and air blockade on Yemen.
Moreover, Saudi-led airstrikes used banned cluster munitions according to Human Rights Watch (HRW). And 25 million Yemenis face risk of starvation.

Yemen’s Houthi militants said they had shot down a Moroccan F-16 fighter jet carrying out airstrikes against their northern stronghold, as fighting escalated in the hours leading up to a five-day cease-fire.

The Iran-backed rebels on Monday said the jet was brought down over Saada province. They also provided photos showing what they said was the wreckage of the jet and the remains of its pilot. None of the Houthi claims could be independently confirmed.

The Moroccan military, which is participating in the Saudi-led military operation against the Houthis, acknowledged that one of its planes had gone missing over Yemen on Sunday evening. In a statement published by the state news agency, it gave no reason for the disappearance and said it was still investigating the incident.

But what the media didn't report is: Houthis unconditionally handed over the body of Moroccan pilot to be buried in his homeland, although he was flying in Yemeni sky to pound Sa'da, Houthis' stronghold.
