The situation in Yemen could turn “catastrophic”. Speaking to the media today, Trond Jensen, the Head of OCHA’s Office in Yemen used the term as he appealed to all parties to the conflict to respect their obligations under international law, and to respect civilians and civilian infrastructure. He called, in particular, for unfettered humanitarian access, so that urgently needed supplies can be brought in. “I am extremely concerned for the safety of civilians caught in the middle of fierce fighting in Yemen,” he said.
