The blockade on Taiz imposed by Houthis is preventing water and food to be transferred into the city. The humanitarian situation has worsened tremendously in the past month. Citizens in Taiz are forced to buy Al Kawthar drinking water from the black market with double and sometimes triple the price. People cannot afford mineral bottled water, and those who can afford them cannot find shops that sell them.
