Yemen: Saudi-led Coalition Atrocities in Numbers
Yemeni human rights organization Entesaf publishes data about the victims of the Saudi-led war on Yemen and calls for an investigation into the massacres against children.
Entesaf Organization for Women and Child Rights in Yemen confirmed that the number of children victims caused by the Saudi-led coalition forces since the beginning of the war on Yemen has reached 3,825 martyrs and 4,157 wounded.
During a press conference in Sanaa, the human rights organization pointed out that the number of displaced families has reached 670,343 families in 15 governorates and indicated that there are about 600,000 premature babies who are in need of incubators and energy sources that are necessary for their survival.
The organization added that more than 400,000 Yemeni children are suffering from severe malnutrition, 80,000 of whom are at risk of facing death. Out of 1,000 newborns, more than 27 die annually, it added.
More than 3,000 children who have heart defects face the risk of death, as the Saudi-led coalition countries prohibit the introduction of electrical devices for these patients.
In addition, more than 10,000 people with chronic diseases need emergency travel for treatment abroad, said the organization, but they are even deprived of this most basic right.
It also highlighted there is a lack of vital medicines and blood tests for thalassemia patients.
The Yemeni organization suggested the formation of an independent fact-checking committee consisting of competent people to investigate the massacres against children.
Entesaf also called on all families of the victims of the Saudi-led coalition war to submit lawsuits before the national courts in the capital to preserve their legal rights before the national judiciary.
