In a statement on the occasion of the “International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression” on June 4 of each year, the human rights organization indicated that the purpose of this day is to acknowledge the suffering of children who are the most affected and vulnerable to violations during wars and armed conflicts.
This day revealed the United Nation's failure to protect the rights of children in Yemen, who live in severe suffering, psychological and physical harm, lack of health care, killing, displacement, displacement, and the violation of all their rights claimed by international laws, charters and treaties.
The organization stated in its report that the number of children with physical disabilities as a result of the war reached 5,559 children, and the actual number is expected to be much higher.
The report indicated that Yemen recorded the highest child mortality rates in the Middle East, where about 60 children die out of every thousand newborns, as a result of the repercussions of the war and the blockade, and the lack of preterm incubators, as the health sector owns 600 incubators, while the actual need is estimated at two thousand incubators, in addition to the death of 52. 1,000 children a year, which means a child dies every ten minutes.
While the blockade caused an increase in malnutrition rates, which rose during the past two years to six million people from 3 million and 600 thousand, an increase of 66 percent.
According to the organization's report, more than 2,300,000 children under the age of five suffer from malnutrition, and 632,000 children suffer from severe acute malnutrition that threatens their lives, noting that the number of displaced children has reached more than 1,700,000 children.
"Since the beginning of the aggression, the role of the United Nations and its organizations has been absent. Rather, the matter has evolved until it abandoned its responsibilities and withdrew support from most vital sectors, including the health sector, and ignored all violations against civilians, especially women," the organization's statement said.
The statement held the US-Saudi aggression responsible for all crimes and violations against civilians, especially children, calling on the international community, international organizations and human rights and humanitarian bodies to bear legal and humanitarian responsibility for the violations and heinous massacres that occur against civilians.#US_Saudi_Aggression 23-06-05
