The Saudi-led coalition’s use of cluster bombs has left more than 3,841 civilians dead and wounded, including women and children, during the last period in Yemen.
The National Program for Mine Action confirmed that the Monitoring and Documentation Department in the program monitored the various destructive effects of cluster bombs, which destroyed more than 809 farms and thousands of tons of agricultural crops, in addition to 547 grazing areas.
In messages posted on Twitter, monitored by the Yemeni Press Agency, the Program indicated that approximately 150 civilians were killed and injured recently by cluster bombs in Hodeidah province.
The Mine Action Program described the spread of cluster bombs in the Hodeidah districts as a disaster. It pointed out that it has not received any supplies to mark dangerous areas up to today.
The Program stressed the necessity of intervention by humanitarian partners, including the Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and the rest of responsible international organisations, in order to reduce casualties.
