3000 days into war on Yemen, Sanaa recounts Saudi-led coalition crimes
The Sanaa government's human rights ministry reveals data related to the war on Yemen on the 3,000th day of the war.
The Ministry of Human Rights in the Sanaa government issued figures and statistics showing what the Saudi-led coalition against Yemen targeted during the 3,000 days of the war in a symposium it organized entitled "Aggression and Resilience".
"The coalition of aggression's fighter jets conducted over 274,000 air raids and dropped more than 600,000 bombs during the 3,000 days of the war," Sanaa announced.
Yemen was shelled with more than 1.3 million projectiles, over 768,000 missiles, and over 14,000 drone strikes, the ministry added.
80% of Yemen's population is in need of humanitarian assistance and protection, with millions living in famine-like conditions, the report said.
Sanaa underlined that the governorate of Saada was among the regions hardest hit with cluster munition from the Saudi-led coalition, followed by Omran, Sanaa, and Al-Hudaydah.
The Saudi-led coalition, the report added, targeted nearly 15,000 food facilities, 14,000 agricultural facilities, and over 10,000 livestock farms.
In terms of infrastructure, the coalition targeted 3,300 water wells and facilities, some 700 health facilities, 5,500 power stations, and electrical grids, as well as 3,000 telecom towers.
The Sanaa government ministry announced that the coalition targeted more than 800 fuel and gas stations, 7,000 roads and bridges, as well as hundreds of sports and media facilities, thousands of service facilities, vehicles and means of transportation, and 4,000 educational facilities.
The shelling also affected more than 1,000 mosques and places of worship, 400 archaeological and tourist sites, and 47 judicial complexes.
"What happened to the Yemeni people during the 3,000 days reveals how the failure to implement human rights standards gives rise to injustice, reduces the chances for peace, and makes people lose confidence in the international system," Sanaa government human rights minister Ali Al-Dailami said.
The figures and statistics are still incomplete and disparate, depending on the extent of verification they received," he explained.
Al-Dailami stressed that "the crimes and violations committed by the coalition against civilians in the occupied governorates are still ongoing, and it is impossible to accurately tally them."
Eye of Humanity Center for Rights and Development published detailed statistics on casualties and damage caused by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen during its 3,000 days of war so far.
The Center reported that the number of casualties reached 48,841, adding that the number of martyrs reached 18,206, including 4,096 children and 2,461 women.
The Saudi-led coalition dealt heavy blows to the Yemeni infrastructure during the aforementioned period, destroying 607,000 homes, 1750 mosques, and 1272 schools, as per the statistics.
The report also added that the aggression bombed around 1500 civil facilities, including educational facilities, agricultural fields, sports facilities, archaeological sites, and media facilities.
The organization said the Saudi-led coalition also targeted 15 airports, 16 ports, and 349 power stations and generators, in addition to 2112 governmental facilities, not to mention thousands of bridges and roads fully destroyed or partially damaged.
Yemen has been under a Saudi-led war for 3,000 days now. As a result, the humanitarian situation remains extremely difficult mainly due to the ongoing blockade of ports imposed by the Saudi coalition forces, which limits the availability of fuel, food, and medicine.
