393,000 displaced people in Yemen since 2019 beginning
Some 393,000 people have left their areas in Yemen since the beginning of 2019, a UN agency said Wednesday, because of the 4.7-year war on Yemen.
“Since the beginning of this year, nearly 393,000 Yemenis have so far got displaced, mostly because of the Saudi-led aggression,” the International Organization for Migration (IOM) reported.
Last November, IOM said 3.65 million Yemenis had been internally displaced by war and disasters.
The 4.5-year war on Yemen has pushed the country to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, according to the UN, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
