A call for renewal and strengthening of the mandate for the Group of Eminent Experts

United Nations Human Rights Council

39th session

26th September 2018

Item 10, Technical assistance and capacity building – ID on HC report on Yemen

Mr. President,

This statement is made on behalf of Save the Children and 17 civil society organisations, including organisations with current operations in Yemen.

Dear Foreign Secretary,

We are writing to express our grave concern at the rapidly deteriorating crisis in Yemen and increasing violence against civilians in recent weeks.

Yesterday’s horrifying airstrike on a school bus in the Saada governorate reportedly killed 40 children and left another 56 seriously wounded. Such an act is not only unconscionable and heart-breaking, it appears to be a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law (IHL).

International non-government organisations (INGOs) in Yemen strongly condemn horrific Coalition airstrikes on a bus transporting school children in Yemen yesterday. This bombing follows an unacceptable trend of attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure by parties to Yemen’s conflict. The killing of dozens of children has escalated the depravity of a war creating untold loss and destruction for people in Yemen.

We, the undersigned humanitarian and human rights organisations, strongly condemn the major attacks that hit a fish market and the entrance to Yemen's largest hospital, Al Thawra, in Hodeidah on 2 August, which reportedly killed over 40 civilians, including children. Hospitals are protected under International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and parties to the conflict are obliged to do everything possible to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure, as the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen, Lise Grande, emphasised in her condemnation of the attack.
