SANA'A (INPS | ICRC) - The International Committee of the Red Cross is calling for an urgent political solution to alleviate the suffering of millions of people in the country. The ICRC's Regional Director for the Near and Middle East, Robert Mardini, says Yemen is fast-becoming one of the world's 'forgotten conflicts'.
The people of Yemen have suffered conflict for nine long months. Since fighting began in March 2015 more than five thousand people have been killed and more than thirty-thousand injured. Over two million have fled their homes in search of safety. Even for those who can still live at home, normal life has become virtually impossible.
