Fairfield, Conn. (May 10, 2015) — A group of 17 aid agencies* working in Yemen today condemned the growing intensity of airstrikes in the north of Yemen on 8th and 9th of May 2015, as an estimated 70,000 people including 28,000 children flee from the northern Governorate of Sa'ada. In the last 24 hours the coalition has hit Yemen with 130 air strikes.
After more than a month of heavy fighting in Yemen, a group of 22 major aid agencies in Yemen have warned today their life-saving assistance risk coming to an abrupt end within a week unless land, sea and air routes are opened immediately for the importation of fuel.
