Tales of displaced Yemenis: two camps, same tragedy

For many families in Yemen, the war has not only stripped them of their livelihoods, homes and belongings but something far more valuable: their dignity. Two million people have been displaced by the conflict between the government, backed by a Saudi-led military coalition, and the Iran-aligned Huthi rebels.

‘Lazy attitude in media towards Yemen crisis’: 6x more casualties than previously thought

A new report by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, claims the number of Yemenis killed since 2016 has reached 60,000.
That figure’s six times greater than the normally-cited 10,000 dead.

Andrea Carboni, one of the researchers behind the report, feels the crisis in Yemen has gone largely under-reported despite its huge scale.

Residents in Yemen’s Hodeida call for the end of the war

Residents in Hodeida call for the war to end after nearly four years of conflict in Yemen, home to what the UN calls the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe. Clashes halted near the rebel-held port of Hodeida, following intense conflict between government loyalists supported by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Iran-backed Huthi rebels from the Red Sea city, whose docks are a lifeline to 14 million Yemenis at risk of starvation.

Conflict in Hodeida impacting life of Yemenis in Sanaa

Yemenis express the impact that the ongoing conflict in the port city of Hodeida between pro-government forces and Huthi-rebels is having on their daily lives in the rebel-held capital, Sanaa. After nearly four years of conflict in Yemen, home to what the UN calls the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe, the United States and Britain are now pressing Saudi Arabia and its allies to end the war against the Iran-backed Huthi rebels.

Yemenis seek safety from landmines at IDP camp in Khokha

Displaced Yemenis take shelter at the al-Waara camp in the Khokha district as millions are caught up in a dragging war in which Huthi rebels have been fighting for more than three years against the Yemeni government, which is backed by a Saudi-led military coalition. While the Saudi-led coalition has come under fire for air raids that have killed civilians, including children, in rebel-held areas, the Huthis have been accused of widespread and indiscriminate use of landmines.

Yemenis struggle with fuel shortages, skyrocketing prices

Hundreds of Yemenis queue up at petrol stations every day in the rebel-held city of Sanaa, with residents increasingly frustrated by deteriorating living conditions after more than three years of war. The conflict, deepened by a Saudi-led blockade, has triggered crippling shortages, which in turn has caused prices to skyrocket.

Yemen’s Bloody War Could Get A Lot Worse (HBO)

At least 450 Yemenis have been killed in the first nine days of August, making it one of the bloodiest periods since the war broke out three and a half years ago. And it could get a lot worse.

An international coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and backed by the United States, is preparing to retake the strategic port city of Hodeidah. The operation could prove disastrous for Yemen’s most vulnerable: Seventy percent of all of Yemen’s goods enter into the country through Hodeidah, so a protracted battle could quickly turn into a humanitarian disaster, which prevents millions of people from receiving food and aid.

The UN is desperately trying to stop this attack and restart failed peace talks in the process. Its Special Envoy, Martin Griffiths, is hoping to bring all sides together in Geneva on September 6.

Yet, government troops continue to advance towards the city.

“It’s going to be a fierce battle,” 23 year-old fighter Saeed, told VICE News. “The Houthis have big military capabilities — but we are advancing towards Hodeidah.”

VICE News embedded with Yemeni troops as they prepared to retake a crucial Houthi supply route, just 90 minutes from the city. But even a seemingly straightforward operation like this one descended into chaos. It wasn’t long into the advance that Saeed and several men found themselves cut off from their convoy, trapped by Houthi sniper fire. They were forced to run for cover before eventually making their escape.

“They must’ve known about our attack,” he says, as mortar fire rages around us.

A battle in Hodeidah city itself would be one of the deadliest in a war that has already claimed more than ten thousand lives and thrust 23 million more into the world’s worst humanitarian crisis . More than 120,000 civilians have fled the city in anticipation. It’s easy to see why. Not long after government forces started their push, ambulances began rolling up outside the one semi-functioning hospital in the area.

Ten-year-old Mohammed becomes the first civilian to be caught up in the crossfire. Ali Jalmoud says his son was playing in their house with a Houthi mortar hit. Dr. Mahdi Ba-Kather is the one remaining doctor in a local hospital and he’s struggling to cope with the influx of casualties. Mohammed has several shrapnel wounds — one’s hit an artery and staff are trying desperately to control the bleeding.

“We’re tying it tight to stop it” Dr. Ba-Kather explained to Mohammed as he uses gauze as a makeshift tourniquet. Lacking basic supplies or a qualified surgeon, all he can do is triage Mohammed and send him to another hospital three hours away in the hopes he survives the journey.
