KABUL: (Middle East Press) According to the United Nations at least over 800 people have been killed within 12 days of Saudi Arabia’s violence in Yemen.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a report published on Monday that 1,707 people have also been injured in the violence in Yemen since March 19.
However, the UN report highlighted that the “civilian casualty estimates are frequently underestimated, as many people do not have the means to seek treatment in hospitals and families may bury their dead before reports can be collected.
The OCHA said the violence in Yemen and the Saudi airstrikes continue to hamper humanitarian access to the affected areas, though “partners are working to import critical supplies – mainly to support hospital services – and deploy emergency medical teams.”
The Al Saudi regime unleashed its deadly air raids without a UN mandate against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
