They discussed the priorities of humanitarian support during the current period in a number of areas, especially public health, population and education.

They also touched on the prisoners’ aspect in light of the positive effort of the ICRC in this aspect, which receives the attention and follow-up of the revolutionary leadership, the Supreme Political Council and the government, in addition to its humanitarian contribution to the illegal immigration.

Dr. Bin Habtoor pointed out that the countries involved in aggression are using their material, diplomatic and media capabilities to continue the war on Yemen and impoverish its people through its suffocating siege, plundering the wealth of the Yemeni people, and using their revenues in this eight-year war.

He touched on the importance of the role of the ICRC in communicating these facts to the whole world.

Meanwhile, the Director of Operations of ICRC in Geneva stressed that Yemen is a priority for the International Red Cross and its humanitarian projects at the global level.
