As of November 2014, IDMC estimates that there were 334,000 internally displaced people in Yemen, most of them located in the country’s north.

IDMC bases its estimate on figure made available by the UN Agency for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) which is in turn derived from the number of IDPs registered by the Government’s IDP Executive Unit and UNHCR as of 30 September 2014 (OCHA, 7 November 2014).

Following intermittent clashes between Al-Houthi groups and the Yemeni government in July 2009, the situation in Sa'ada governorate escalated into open conflict in the sixth round of hostilities since 2004. Tens of thousands of people were displaced from Sa'ada and Amran governorates, adding to those displaced by previous rounds of fighting. For many, it was their second or third displacement over the last few years.

In February 2010 a ceasefire put an end to hostilities; however intermittent violence has continued in affected governorates.

22 Jul 2009 description

Fighting between government forces and followers of the late Sheikh Badr Eddin al-Houth have led to displacement in northern Yemen at regular intervals since 2004, peaking during the latest round of conflict in June and July 2008. Though many returned to their places of origin following the end of hostilities in July 2008, large numbers were unable to return home.

An estimated 100,000 people remain internally displaced as result of the Sa'ada conflict, including some who have gone back to places of origin.
