‘The World Health Organization has reported a 50-percent increase in cholera cases in war-torn Yemen.

On Tuesday, WHO announced that 35,217 cases have been recorded since April 27 when the outbreak started. The number shows a 50-percent leap in cases compared to figures given by the organization last week.

On Friday, Nevio Zagaria, the WHO country representative for Yemen, reported that 242 people have been killed due to the outbreak, with about 23,500 other confirmed cases of the disease reported across the country in the past three weeks alone…

…Director of the Azal Medical Center, Dr. Yahya Al-Hamdani, has suggested that the bacteria behind the outbreak may have been spread intentionally from the air.

“The most important reasons for the aggression are that they have sprayed toxic gases from the air; and hidden forces have worked on the spread of the epidemic,” he said.’
