Over 3,000 Yemeni children in need of life-saving medical treatment abroad

The Acting Minister of Human Rights of Yemen, Ali al-Dailami, had revealed on Monday that over 3,000 children urgently need to travel in order to receive treatment abroad due to their critical health condition.

During a press conference held in Sana’a, al-Dailami explained that “human rights and international organisations have not fulfilled their human rights and humanitarian duty towards the children of Yemen.”

He stated that “Yemeni children have been subjected to crimes and violations over seven years due to the Saudi-led coalition aggression, siege, starvation and displacement.”

“Children were not spared from the coalition’s raids, neither in their homes, nor in their schools, nor even in health and worship houses and markets. Rather, the coalition made them a military target,” al-Dailami said.

Al-Dailami stressed the importance of developing a program for civil society that directs its attention to supporting children’s rights issues, far removed from any misinformation that serves the coalition and distorts the facts.
