During the month of December 2020, the countries of War Coalition against Yemen, led by the US, KSA and UAE, and their mercenaries continued deliberately to launch air strikes, direct artillery shells and indiscriminate attacks on populated areas, vital civilian places, and facilities in various governorates of the Republic. This resulted in the demolition of the civilian homes and vital civil facilities, leading to some casualties including children and women.
The countries of the war coalition on Yemen and its mercenaries clearly violated the Stockholm Agreement in plain view of the United Nations observers (the UN envoys in Hodeidah affiliated to the UN Secretary-General’s envoy in Hodeidah) without taking the necessary actions against them. The countries of war coalition on Yemen have intensified the warplanes flights and direct targeting of many vital facilities with air strikes and shelling of homes with mortars and heavy weapons in the various districts of Hodeidah Governorate.
The remnants of internationally banned weapons, thrown by the warplanes of the coalition of war on Yemen, led by the US, KSA and the UAE, are still killing the Yemeni people, men, women, elderly people and children. As a result of the remnants of war and cluster bombs, ten casualties were reported in December 2020, amidst a lack of the simplest capabilities and the unavailability of supplies and field tools for clearing remnants, mines and cluster bombs. Despite the National Salvation Government’s attempt to buy these tools, the war coalition countries prevented their entry from the port of Hodeida. In addition, the United Nations did not respond to the concerned authorities’ repeated requests to provide these supplies and tools to save the lives of millions of citizens, especially children and women.
