Sana'a, 16 February 2017

I am extremely saddened and appalled by the airstrikes that hit a funeral gathering of mostly women and children in a private residence in the Arhab District of Sana’a Governorate yesterday afternoon. Health authorities confirm six women and a girl killed and at least 15 other women injured; some gravely. Unfortunately, the number of dead could rise as the critically injured struggle to survive.

Intense conflict since March 2015 has created a vast humanitarian crisis in Yemen. An estimated 18.8 million people need some form of humanitarian or protection assistance, including 10.3 million who are in acute need. High levels of food insecurity and malnutrition, large scale displacement, and declining health and social services are impacting the lives of millions. Collapsing social protection safety nets and a faltering economy require immediate action to avert a greater humanitarian catastrophe.
