Over 13,000 Yemeni women and children killed or wounded in 2020

The Entesaf Organisation for Women’s and Children’s Rights has revealed in a recent statistics that 13,082 children and women have been killed or injured by the Saudi-led coalition war on Yemen during 2020.

The statistics indicated that the number of dead amounted to 6,188, including 2,392 women and 3,796 children, while the number of wounded reached 6,894, of whom 2,798 were women and 4,096 children.

Entesaf held the coalition countries, led by Saudi Arabia, responsible for the crimes and violations committed against innocent civilians, especially women and children.

The organisation renewed its call for the United Nations and especially the Security Council to bear their responsibilities regarding these crimes, work to stop them, and to lift the siege.

It also called for the formation of an independent international committee to investigate all crimes against the Yemeni people, and to hold accountable all those involved in these crimes.
