Mr. Grundberg stressed that this escalation undermines the prospects of reaching a sustainable political settlement to end the conflict in Yemen.

¨The escalation in recent weeks is among the worst we have seen in Yemen for years and the threat to civilian lives is increasing,¨ he stressed.

Airstrikes on Sana’a have resulted in loss of civilian lives, and damaged civilian infrastructure and residential areas.

The continued offensive on Ma’rib and the continued missile attacks on the governorate are also resulting in civilian casualties, damage to civilian objects and mass displacement,” Mr. Grundberg said and further expressed his concern about the sustained attacks against Saudi Arabia which also resulted in civilian casualties and damaged civilian infrastructure.

Mr. Grundberg stressed that this escalation undermines the prospects of reaching a sustainable political settlement to end the conflict in Yemen. He also emphasized that violations of international humanitarian and human rights law in Yemen cannot continue with impunity.
