22,000 Yemenis Displaced in War in Marib- dailyyemen
The United Nations announced that more than 22,000 Yemenis have been displaced as a result of outbreak of war and clashes in the central Yemeni province of Marib.
Stephane Dujarric Spokesperson for the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres told a news conference in New York that more than 22,000 Yemenis have been displaced since last February as a result of spread of violence in the central Yemeni province of Marib.
Clashes continue in Yemen, including in Marib, and have displaced more than 22,000 people since early February, Dujarric said.
He went on to say that Yemeni economy is collapsing and its national currency has depreciated unprecedentedly this month and this issue means that people of Yemen will no longer be able to pay for food and basic goods.
Dujarric further noted that more than half of Yemen’s population is facing food insecurity and that five million people are one step away from starvation.
The Saudi-led coalition bombed Yemeni provinces of Marib and Sa’ada 16 times on Friday.
