WHO Says Over 2,000 People Died in Conflict in Yemen

GENEVA The armed conflict in Yemen has caused more than 1,200 deads and around 5,000 injuries, reported the World Health Organization, or WHO.

1,244 people have died and 5,044 have been injured in Yemen between 19 March and 27 April, the UN health agency said in a report on the situation in Yemen published in Geneva.

This count only considers deaths and injuries treated in hospitals, so it is believed that the actual figures are much higher, considering the losses in the field.

WHO also reported a serious deterioration of the situation in southwestern Yemen, since fighting there now takes place in residential areas.

Hostilities in the poorest country in the Arabian Peninsula have also caused 300,000 displaced persons, out of a total of 7.5 million affected by this new conflict.

The World Food Program has announced that it will reduce the distribution of aid due to lack of fuel for vehicles.

Houthi rebels took up arms in mid-March against President Abd Rabou Mansur Hadi, who is now in Saudi Arabia.

In his defense, Saudi Arabia, leading a coalition of nine countries, began bombing Houthi positions in late March and since then a steady and significant increase in casualties was recorded.
