Bombing Continues in Yemen

Bombing in Yemen has been going on for over a year now and it has had devastating effects on Yemen's already fragile economy. Civilians have felt the effects of this bombing the most as schools, hospitals, homes, factories, bridges, and stores  have been hit by bombs meant for rebel groups. Saudi-Arabian and American trained pilots are to blame for the bombings which shines a bad light on the U.S despite its attempts to distance itself from the war. Many of the planes and weaponry used by Saudi-Arabia is also American made. Those suffering from the bombing blame America for all of the destruction and there has been an increase in mistrust and hate towards the U.S. Thousands have been displaced from their homes and are struggling to make ends meet. Ironically Saudi-Arabia is one of the top leaders in donating aid to Yemen despite being the main reason for aid in the first place.  Even with the aid, however, Yemen faces long lasting economic troubles for the future.
