Humanitarian organisation sounds alarm about effect of Saudi war on Yemen for children and women

The Entesaf Organisation for Women’s and Children’s Rights has released a report in which it reveals the tragic reality that women and children in Yemen have been going through  during the years of the US-Saudi aggression and siege.

In its report, the organisation said that the total number women and children who were documented to have fallen victim because of the Saudi-led invasion up until the ninth of October of this year has already reached 13,074.

The report explained that the total number of victims of the aggression from direct bombardment amounted to 5,183 killed and injured women, while the total number of children reached 7,891 killed and injured.

It noted that hundreds of health facilities concerned with women and children are threatened with closure as a result of the aggression’s continued prevention of oil derivatives off the port of Hodeidah.

The organization emphasised that a major humanitarian disaster against women and children is looming on the horizon, with the aggression tightening its suffocating siege on the Yemeni peopke and preventing the entry of oil derivatives.

In the field of education, Entesaf indicated that the aggression coalition has affected nearly two million students by targeting educational facilities, directly and indirectly.

The organisation recommended the Ministry of Education to strengthen its educational role in public and private schools on how to deal with the bombing of the aggression air forces and similar criminal events.

The authorities called for psychological support for the affected women and children, calling for the formation of an independent and efficient fact-finding committee to investigate these counts of aggression and to bring the perpetrators to justice.
