After more than three years the conflict in Yemen that has brought about a man-made humanitarian disaster affecting 22.5 million people. As a result of the protracted violence thousands of civilians have been killed or injured and millions displaced. Widespread damage to public infrastructure and severe shortage of supplies owing to restrictions on the movement of goods into and within the country make it nearly impossible for the majority of Yemenis to obtain food water medical care and other essentials. A cholera outbreak occurred in May 2017 although the number of suspected cases has been declining in the past few months. Nevertheless people remain vulnerable to contracting communicable diseases. Attacks against humanitarian actors hinder the delivery of aid. Since March 2015 seven Yemen Red Crescent Society volunteers and two ICRC staff members have been killed while carrying out their duties. The few international organizations present in the country struggle to respond to the outstanding needs of victims. Killing of ICRC staff member 21st April 2018 outside Taiz. ICRC are currently evacuating all mobile staff from Taiz and have suspended activities and movements across Yemen. At this point it is premature to determine the impact of this appalling incident on our operations in the country however the ICRC remains committed to its humanitarian endeavour and to keep responding to the dire humanitarian needs in Yemen.
