In mid-August, heavy clashes in areas surrounding Marib governorate led to new waves of displacements, mainly from Al Jawf governorate, and Medghal and Majzar districts in Marib. An estimated 1,500 households (HHs) have moved into Medghal, Sirwah, Raghwan, Marib City and Marib Al-Wadi districts. IOM has deployed Rapid Response Mechanism (RRM) teams to register the newly displaced persons and assess conditions; so far, 690 IDP HHs have received emergency health services and aid items.

IOM teams continue to mobilize cluster partners to provide assistance to the thousands affected by floods and storms in Marib. From July to mid-August, IOM reached more than 34,000 people with shelter materials and emergency relief items, flood prevention measures, access to clean water, health services and protection support.
