The Center pointed out that children and women are more vulnerable to injuries, as (41) children were killed during the year and (10) women were killed as a result of war remnants.
During the past May, the center recorded a total number of victims, amounting to (19) who were killed as a result of cluster bomb and mine explosions, including (10) martyrs, most of whom were children and women, while (9 )citizens were wounded were recorded, adding that the bombs also led to the death of hundreds of citizens’ livestock in the governorates of ( Al-Jawf and Saada).
The center revealed that the United Nations has stopped its mine-related activities by 95%, instead of increasing the volume of support due to the increase in the number of victims.
The center pointed out that the aggression coalition used cluster bombs excessively during the years of the war, especially the capital Sana’a and all Yemeni governorates, as it led to the pollution of large areas, whose effects will remain for decades without taking the necessary measures to protect civilians, whether during or after the conflict, as stipulated in the Geneva Convention and the Convention Ottawa and Protocol V to the Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May Be Deemed to Be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects on Civilians.
The center pointed out that stopping and suspending support for mine action activities means the continuation of casualties and the inability of thousands of families to return to their areas and villages so that they can live in safety.
Saudi Arabia, backed by the United States and regional allies, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the claim of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi back to power.
The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases there.
The Executive Center for Mine Action announced the discovery of 544 mines and cluster bombs left over from the aggression during the first week of January 2022.
The US-Saudi aggression refuses to enter equipment and devices to detect explosives in light of the silence of the United Nations, which bears the greatest responsibility for the continued casualties due to the remnants of the aggression, including mines and cluster bombs.
The Mine Center's field work is concentrated in dangerous areas and densely populated directorates. However, the UN's curtailment of its support programs and the coalition's prevention of the introduction of detectors raises the specter of death that threatens the lives of women and children.#US_Saudi_Aggression #Executive Center for Mine Action 23-06-04
