yemen 2020

Dr Abdullah al-Rabiah, the head of the King Salman Centre for Relief and Humanitarian Aid in Saudi Arabia, which co-hosted the virtual summit, put the overall shortfall down to the impact of coronavirus on national budgets and concerns about the restrictions on aid flows imposed by the parties to Yemen’s five-year civil war. Houthi officials have also used torture and other ill-treatment.

About 260,000 Ethiopians, an average of 10,000 per month, were deported from Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia between May 2017 and March 2019, according to the IOM, and deportations have continued. In southern Yemen, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have backed rival Yemeni groups—the Saudi-supported Yemeni government led by President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC). In July, the UN secretary-general released his annual “list of shame” for violations against children in armed conflict during 2018. An estmated 3.6 million people are internally displaced across the country; another 1 million have returned to their homes. Houthi forces have used banned antipersonnel landmines, recruited children, and fired artillery indiscriminately into cities such as Taizz, killing and wounding civilians, and launched indiscriminate ballistic missiles into Saudi Arabia. This has resulted in a pervasive lack of accountability, which heightens disregard for the protection of the Yemeni population and foments a climate of impunity. Lowcock told the summit: “Yemen is now on the precipice, right on the cliff edge, below which lies a tragedy of historic proportions.”. That is just one sign of what lies ahead, if we do not act now. Since May 2017, journalists and international human rights organizations, including Human Rights Watch, have been facing restrictions by the Saudi-led coalition in using UN flights to areas of Yemen under Houthi control. To support the humanitarian response in Yemen and alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Nations convened a High-Level Pledging Event for the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen.

The response was enabled by the largest amount of funding received for the response: a total of US$ 3.58 billion. Yemen’s economy, already fragile prior to the conflict, has been gravely affected. Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, Advisor – Royal Court and Supervisor General, King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (Ksrelief). Repeated disputes over the diversion of aid, including by interference or by conditions set by the Houthi rebels in the north of the country, have led some Arab states to hold back from making pledges. “We are in a race against time,” he said. The conference was not designed to bring about the resumption of political talks to end the conflict, which started when Houthi rebels seized the capital, Sanaa, from the Saudi-backed and UN-recognised government. The association reported that there are 3,478 disappearance cases, at least 128 of those kidnapped have been killed. Coalition and Houthi forces have harassed, threatened, and attacked Yemeni activists and journalists. Mr. Mark Lowcock, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator on behalf of Secretary-General of the United Nations, His Excellency Mr. António Guterres­­­. The armed conflict in Yemen has resulted in the largest humanitarian crisis in the world; parties to the conflict have killed and injured thousands of Yemeni civilians. The event took place online on 2 June 2020.

During the four-hour virtual summit, addressed by more than 40 speakers, leaders in individual nations repeatedly called for a political settlement and the lifting of any restrictions on the distribution of humanitarian supplies. The UN has accused the Houthis of stealing UN food aid in some areas controlled by the Houthi-authorities, and it promised to investigate corruption in its own agencies in the Yemen aid effort. Houthi-planted landmines across Yemen continue to harm civilians and their livelihoods. Yemen is the world's worst humanitarian crisis and levels of humanitarian needs are staggering. Hundreds of thousands of families no longer have a steady source of income, and many public servants have not received a regular salary in several years.

According to the Yemen Data Project, more than 17,500 civilians were killed and injured since 2015, and a quarter of all civilians killed in air raids were women and children. Other big donors were the UK, the US, Norway and Germany. To support the humanitarian response in Yemen and alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Nations convened a High-Level Pledging Event for the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen. Before the conference, the UN had only been able to raise $500m for Yemen this year. Houthi forces have been using antipersonnel mines, improvised explosive devices (IED), and anti-vehicle mines along the western coast of Yemen, resulting in hundreds of civilian deaths and injuries. In a sign of the UN’s problems, Saudi Arabia insisted $200m of its donation would be spent through Saudi aid programmes, not those sanctioned by the UN. The United Arab Emirates, one of the external powers backing the Yemen government against the Houthis, made no commitment to the UN programme at the summit. According to WHO, more than 862,607 suspected cholera cases were reported from 1 January to end of December 2019.
