SITUATION REPORT HIGHLIGHTS
Fighting has intensified throughout Yemen, with more than 1,100 casualties reported since last week.
The number of internally displaced people (IDPs) in Yemen has grown to almost 1.3 million, an increase of 25 per cent since figures were last verified in May.
Of the 5,148 schools in Yemen, 70 per cent were closed before the end of the school year due to insecurity, affecting the education and well-being of 1.84 million children.
A Level 3 emergency response declaration has been issued for Yemen.
Violence continues to spread across Yemen with offices of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) being attacked, 54 health facilities directly damaged due to the conflict and 462 schools affected since the escalation of the conflict.
There are now 1,267,590 internally displaced people, a 24 per cent increase since mid-June.
In 2014, Yemen was facing a protracted humanitarian crisis that had already led to the internal displacement of thousands of persons. At the end of March 2015, the conflict has significantly spread, affecting 21 of the 22 governorates of the country. Since then, the humanitarian situation has seriously deteriorated in the country and in June 2015, 21.1 million people were estimated to require humanitarian assistance. Insecurity across the country has also led to massive population displacement.

The national health-care system has reached a breaking point. Dengue fever cases are rising, chronic diseases lack treatment, and vital medical supplies and personnel cannot reach targeted people.
Commercial imports of food, medicine and fuel are at a virtual standstill. Seaports and airports are operating at minimal capacity and road networks are non-functional.
• The revised Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP) was launched in Geneva on Friday 19 June calling for US$1.6 billion and within that prioritizing $758 million to meet the most critical needs.
