Saudi Arabia is not simply waging a war against Yemen, but rather committing an "outright slaughter" in the country with the aim of exterminating the Yemeni population by any means possible, says an analyst.

“It is absolutely disgraceful. This is a humanitarian crisis. There needs to be sanctions put against Saudi Arabia immediately. This so-called war needs to stop and aid needs to get in to these people,” Max Igan told Press TV in an interview on Sunday.

The radio host also commented on the cholera outbreak in Yemen, which, he said, “lies squarely” in the hands of western governments who have supported the Saudi regime in its deadly campaign against Yemen.
