He pointed out that the number of victims from cluster bombs since the beginning of the US-Saudi aggression has reached 3,956 killed and injured, including 400 children and 115 women.
Safra indicated that the US-Saudi aggression has prevented the entry of mine detectors into Sana'a since 2018, and our field teams face multiple dangers and obstacles because of that.
Recently, Safra stated that Hodeidah, Al-Baidha'a, Marib, Al-Jawf, Nihm and Sa'ada are the most infested areas for mines and bombs, in which the aggression used the most deadly and latest military technology in our country. He explained that the Center is continuing to work to clear areas contaminated and affected by the bombs and mines of the US-Saudi aggression, pointing out that mines and remnants - especially cluster bombs - have become a national issue and a societal problem that must be disposed.
