“In Yemen, we can speak of a famine that will happen in two to three months” (ICRC)

Yves Daccord, Director General of the ICRC, is sounding the alarm on Yemen, a “damned” country, stucked between the bombings and the threat of imminent famine.

Since March 25, 2015, an international coalition led by Saudi Arabia has launched air strikes against the country, triggering a large-scale armed conflict so that the fighting has affected the entire country today.

Human rights abuses and war crimes are perpetrated throughout the country, causing unbearable suffering to the civilian population.

In addition to the incessant air strikes by coalition forces, the various rival groups clash with each other on the ground.

Despite the considerable number of victims in the conflict, where more than 12,000 people have been killed or injured, much of the world is unaware of this conflict and receives little information about its devastating consequences.
