UN warns over 7mn Yemenis in need of shelter, non-food items

More than seven million people in war-ravaged Yemen need shelter and non-food assistance, the United Nation refugee agency has warned.

The UNHCR Yemen Office wrote on Twitter 7.3 million Yemenis require “shelter” and “non-food assistance”, with 75% being women and children.

The body added that an exhibition was being organized on Tuesday in the capital Sanaa, aimed at “presenting solutions to the soaring shelter needs”.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the Mansour Hadi government back to power and crushing Ansarullah.

The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases.

Yemeni armed forces and the Popular Committees have grown steadily in strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.
