According to data released by human rights organizations operating in the country, the war in Yemen has already caused the death of 3,182 minors in various regions of the country.

The news states that “973 children were killed by air strikes, while 1,584 children lost their lives on the front lines. Another 250 died from live bullets and 152 from landmines.”

Saudi Arabia launched the devastating war against Yemen in March 2015, in coalition with its Arab allies and with the logistical and arms support of the US and several Western states.

Since then, 233,000 people have died, 131,000 of them from indirect causes such as lack of food, health services and infrastructure.

Arabia Saudí inició en marzo de 2015 la devastadora guerra contra Yemen, en coalición con sus aliados árabes y con el apoyo logístico y armamentístico de EE.UU. y de varios Estados occidentales. Desde entonces habrían muerto 233000 personas, 131000 de ellas por causas indirectas como la falta de alimentos, servicios de salud e infraestructura.

Unicef calculó en octubre que 10 000 niños yemeníes habrían sido asesinados o mutilados y 11 millones necesitan asistencia humanitaria, de los cuales 400000 padecen desnutrición aguda grave.
