Earlier today, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) highlighted that Yemeni children are the “first and most to suffer” from the war on Yemen.
UNICEF reported that at least 10,000 minors were killed or injured and 400,000 were malnourished since the Saudi-led coalition launched its aggression against Yemen in 2015.
Philippe Duamelle, the UNICEF representative to Yemen, pointed out that “just over the first two months of this year, 47 children were reportedly killed or maimed in several locations" across the country.
In total, "the UN verified that more than 10,200 children have been killed or injured" since the beginning of the war on Yemen, Duamelle indicated.
He confirmed that "the actual number is likely much higher.”
