Increasing violence in Yemen is taking intolerable toll on civilians, especially children.
Locals are left without water for five days!
With conflict escalating in many parts of Yemen, innocent civilians, especially children continue to be killed, injured, displaced and put at increasing risk from disease. According to report by UNICEF this morning, over 100,000 people are now displaced in search of a safer place. At least 74 children were reported dead since the onset of the conflict on March 26. As the conflict intensifies, it is believed the number of casualties is drastically increasing. Hospitals are under increasing pressure as they struggle to manage mass casualties with insufficient supplies with some hospitals and medical facilities being attacked. So far at least three health workers including an ambulance driver have been killed in various attacks.
