10 Million Children Victims of Yemen War: UNICEF

Nearly 10 million Yemeni children are victims of pain and suffering because of the war in the country, the UNICEF said.

In a statement published on Tuesday, Julien Harneis, UNICEF Representative in Yemen, said that the “continuous bombardment and street fighting are exposing children and their families to a deadly combination of violence, disease and deprivation.”Yemeni children suffer from war

UN statistics showed that the “direct impact of the conflict on children is hard to measure.”

“The statistics confirmed by the UN (747 children killed and another 1,108 injured since March last year; 724 children pressed into some form of military activity) tell only part of the story. But they are shocking enough in themselves,” the statement said.

It went on to talk about the broader effects of violence on civilians.
“The broader effects of the violence on innocent civilians extend much further.

Children make up at least half of the 2.3 million people estimated to have been displaced from their homes, and of the more than 19 million people struggling to get water on a daily basis; 1.3 million children under five face the risk of acute malnutrition and acute respiratory tract infections. And at least 2 million children cannot go to school.”

Public services like health, water and sanitation have been decimated and cannot meet the ever-increasing needs of a desperate population, Harneis said in the statement.

Few of the 7.4 million children requiring protection (including psycho-social support to help deal with the effects of their exposure to violence) will actually receive it, he added.   

Harneis note that international agencies are doing their best in “extremely hazardous working environment,” but stressed that “so much more is needed.”

“The children of Yemen need urgent help and they need it now… What is really needed -- above all else -- is an end to the conflict. Only in that way can the children of Yemen look forward to 2016 with hope rather than despair,” the statement concluded.

Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
