According to the UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths, there is now a military escalation in the city of Marib and import restriction through Hodeida port continues, thus bringing about a serious fuel shortage.

On the other hand, the UN Emergency Aid Coordinator Mark Lowcock told the UN Security Council (UNSC) that the humanitarian crisis in Yemen is trapped in a relentless downward spiral.

Famine continues to stalk the nation, with five million people on the verge of passing away, while Covid-19 cases increase, pushing health system to collapse, Lowcock stressed.

Faced with the alarming situation, Lowcock called for urgent action to shield civilians, increase humanitarian access, boost economy and move towards peace.

According to the United Nations, Yemen is facing up one of the world´s worst humanitarian crises, largely due to the conflict between government troops and Houthi rebels.
