NGOs call on actors in Yemen’s conflict to extend truce

NGOs call on actors in Yemen’s conflict to extend truce

Aden, Yemen, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) More than 40 humanitarian organizations called on the warring parties in Yemen to extend the current truce, which expires on Sunday, October 2, to avoid a new escalation of violence after eight years of war.

In a joint communique, those groups stressed that since the end of hostilities began in April, the number of civilians killed has dropped by 60 percent.

Since then, the amount of fuel vessels entering the Hodeidah port has quadrupled to help to maintain proper functionality and access to public services, including acute medical treatment, they noted.

They pointed out that the resumption of commercial flights from Sana’a helped 21,000 Yemenis to access vital medical care, seek educational opportunities and reunite with their families abroad.

Although significant progress has made, more time is needed to ensure that the population can begin to rebuild and recover their lives, they stated.

They warned that if restarted, the conflict will threaten Yemen’s future development.

Oxfam, Yemen Center for Human Rights Studies and Save the Children were the NGOs that signed the document.

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