The European Union expressed its concern about the increasing number of child victims of the conflict in Yemen. An EU spokesperson said that civilians, including children, are bearing the burden of intensified hostilities in the country.
“All attacks against civilians are unacceptable,” said the spokesperson, “and the number of child victims of the conflict in Yemen is alarming.”

The comments were made in a statement published on the EU’s website, which pointed out that the recent cross-border attack is “inconsistent” with the efforts of envoy, supported by the European Union and its member states, to reach a ceasefire and resume political negotiations.
