During the four months prior to that date, 823 civilians were injured or killed in the war, and in the following four months, the figure rose to 1,535, the NRC stated, citing data from the Civilian Impact Monitoring Project.

A few days ago, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) denounced that at least 17 children were killed in this country in January, whose figure was almost doubled in December.

The war in Yemen began in 2014, when rebels took up arms and occupied large swathes of the country, included Sana’a, its capital.

According to the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, two-thirds of the population, some 20 million people, need humanitarian assistance and 80 percent live below the poverty line.
