UNICEF Says 1,400 Children Killed in Yemen since March 2015

SANA’A – About 1,400 children have been killed and around 2,140 wounded in the conflict in Yemen since March 2015, when the military intervention of the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia began, UNICEF deputy representative in that country Meritxell Relaño said on Wednesday.

This is confirmed by UNICEF, but the organization warned that the actual numbers of deaths “are likely to be much higher,” Relaño said at a news conference.

The UNICEF representative added that 2,000 schools in Yemen cannot be used because they have been destroyed or seriously damaged or because they are used as shelters for the displaced or for military reasons.

The war began in 2014, but has intensified since the Riyadh-led military coalition started an offensive in support of the president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, against the Houthi Shiite rebels, allied to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

On Tuesday, an Arab coalition bombing at the gates of an elementary school in the city of Nihm killed three girls and a teacher, in addition to five Houthi fighters who were in a vehicle in front of the school.
