YEMEN’S HUMANITARIAN CRISIS: A ‘BRIGHTER FUTURE’ AHEAD?

While the war between Russia and Ukraine has captured the world’s attention for the last few weeks, there is another conflict, the civil war in Yemen, which has seen recent developments that deserve closer attention. Yemen has been the stage of a complicated and protracted conflict for seven years now. The conflict, which started when Ansar Allah, a Shiite armed group backed by Iran (also referred to as “the Houthis”), took over Yemen’s capital Sanaa in September 2014, has only escalated in recent years.

In the last month, however, the conflict has taken a new turn. For the first time since 2016, all conflict parties in Yemen have agreed to a two-month truce during Ramadan.

Human rights violations against migrants in Yemen increase amid soaring arrivals: IOM warns

At least 27,800 people have crossed from the Horn of Africa to war-torn Yemen in the first five months of 2022, more than the total who made the journey all of last year along what was the world’s busiest maritime migration route prior to COVID-19, according to the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM).

IOM last year reported that an estimated 27,700 migrants entered Yemen through the so-called Eastern Route, down from 138,000 in 2019 due to heightened COVID-19 mobility restrictions. Approximately 37,500 made the journey in 2020.

The rise in arrivals is cause for alarm in a country now grappling with its eighth year of conflict.

“We are increasingly concerned about the safety and well-being of people moving through Yemen,” said Christa Rottensteiner, IOM Yemen’s Chief of Mission. “Our teams meet migrants every day who have been injured in the conflict or become stranded on their journeys.”

A variety of factors may be influencing this year’s increase, including a loosening of COVID-19 mobility restrictions, more favorable weather conditions, and the security situation and drought in Ethiopia, where most migrants originate from.

Upon arriving in Yemen, migrants face perilous onward journeys to Gulf countries in search of work. They often travel across conflict frontlines and face grave human rights violations such as detention in inhumane conditions, exploitation and forced transfers across lines of control.

Women and girls often report experiencing gender-based violence, abuse or exploitation, usually at the hands of traffickers and smugglers.

In the north of the country, IOM's partners and the local community have reported that over 1,000 migrants – including women and children – have been injured or killed by attacks this year.

Every month, hundreds are treated for gunshot wounds at an IOM-supported hospital near the border town of Sa’dah.

In Ma’rib – some 25 kilometres from one of the conflict’s frontlines – approximately 4,500 migrants are stranded, unable to continue their journey onward or return back.

More than 900 migrants departed on Voluntary Humanitarian Return (VHR) flights from Aden in May (as of 31/05 mid-day), but greater funding is needed to help thousands of others waiting to leave from Aden, Sana’a and Ma’rib.

“One of the main ways we can offer relief and protection is to open more opportunities for migrants who wish to return home to do so, and to provide life-saving assistance and medical aid to those in need,” said Rottensteiner.

“At a time when funding for the Yemen response is on a decline, we must not turn our backs on stranded migrants who are often forgotten in times of crisis. We urgently require greater funding to ease the suffering of more than 190,000 migrants in need of assistance in Yemen.”

IOM is currently appealing for USD 7.5 million to support thousands of stranded migrants to voluntarily return from Yemen to Ethiopia, through IOM’s VHR programme. The Organization also requires USD 9 million to continue its displacement and mobility tracking activities.

Can A UN-Coordinated Dutch-US Plan Defuse The Ticking Safer ‘Time Bomb’?

A month later, a scheme devised by Gressly to oversee the UN’s attempts to raise $80 million from donors began. So far, however, the world body has been able to raise only $40 million.

Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on the salvage plan.

“If we do not receive sufficient funding urgently, the weather window to transfer the oil will close,” Auke Lootsma, resident representative of the UN Development Program in Yemen, said.

“By October, high winds and volatile currents make the operation more dangerous and increase the risk of the ship breaking up.”

A massive oil spill from the Safer would devastate fishing communities on the Red Sea coast and wreak havoc on the water, reefs and mangroves of the littoral states, notably Saudi Arabia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and Yemen itself.

It would also lead to the disruption or even closure of the ports of Hodeidah and As Salif, which would greatly hinder commercial activity across Yemen and the country’s ability to receive humanitarian aid.

In any event, the cost of cleanup alone is expected to be $20 million.

“When the Houthis seized power in that part of Yemen in 2015, they took over the Safer but they lacked the know-how to maintain it,” Al-Shehri said. “Since then, they have been using the alarming structural state of the vessel as a bargaining chip, with the goal of grabbing the proceeds of the oil sold in the market or selling the oil in the black market for further gain.”

https://www.eurasiareview.com/01062022-can-a-un-coordinated-dutch-us-plan-defuse-the-ticking-safer-time-bomb/

My comment: This is anti-Houthi. Actually, the “West” willingly spending money for military intervention world-wide is unwilling to push the FSO Safer case forward by giving the US$ 100 million still required.

Lifting the siege on Taiz

The lifting of the siege imposed by the Houthis on the city of Taiz for the last seven years has turned into one of the central issues in the Yemeni crisis.

The siege itself reveals how the Iranian-backed militias deal with many parts of Yemen.

They see hostile areas as parts of the country which must be subjugated by force or at best isolated from the rest of Yemen. Such is the case with Taiz, one of the most densely-populated cities in Yemen.

In addition to military and economic considerations, other aspects may explain why the Houthis insist on blocking access to the city, in a stark illustration of their mindset which rejects the notion of reconciliation with others.

Conditions for the population have deteriorated as a result of the blocked access to goods, medicines and foodstuffs.

The Houthis have no qualms about inconsistency when they call for the lifting of the alleged siege of Sana’a airport and the port of Hodeidah for humanitarian considerations, while at the same time, they themselves enforce a blockade around the largest Yemeni city in terms of population density. Their siege of Taiz can only be described as an inhuman war crime.

In the final analysis, the lifting of the Houthi siege of Taiz has become a test for the possible extension of the UN truce, in addition to it being a humanitarian necessity.

'Tortured to death': Saudi Army kills seven Yemeni migrants trying to cross border amid UN silence

Families of the seven Yemeni migrants reveal to Al Mayadeen English who killed their sons as Ansar Allah, Saudi coalition trade blames.

Yemeni migrant Abdullah Hasan Saeed left his village in Al-Hudaydah on May 9 toward the Yemeni crossing-border of Al-Raqo to find a job in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. On May 12, his father Hasan received a call from the Republican Hospital in Saada telling him the Saudi Army has tortured and killed his son.

“A Saudi bullet in his back killed him,” Hasan, father of Abdullah, told Al Mayadeen English in a phone call. He added, “There are also signs of torture on his body.”

Abdullah, 28, is one of seven Yemeni citizens tortured and killed by the Saudi Army while on their way to the Kingdom seeking job opportunities to make a living.

On May 12, Al-Masirah TV, citing its reporter in Saada, reported that seven corpses of Yemeni migrants tortured and killed by the Saudi Army in the bordering area of Al-Raqo have arrived at the Republican Hospital in Saada.

Insan Organization condemned this crime and published the names and images of four out of the seven citizens tortured and killed

"The Saudi soldiers have tortured several Yemeni civilians along the border area of ​​Al-Raqo until they died, as seven bodies of civilians arrived in the Republican Hospital in Saada, bearing signs of torture by beating and electrocution," Yemeni Eye of Humanity Center For Rights and Freedoms said in a statement, pointing that the number of victims will most likely increase.

"This crime revealed the true face of this takfiri Wahhabi regime that rules Saudi Arabia and does not accept coexistence with others," the statement added.

Ahmed Abu Hamra, Director of Eye of Humanity Center For Rights and Freedoms, condemned this Saudi crime, saying, "The Saudi regime's record is full of daily crimes in the border areas."

"We have contacted all UN organizations regarding these crimes, but organizations do not take any action," he noted.

On May 13, the Saudi-led coalition in a statement published by Saudi Press Agency (SPA), said, "Ansar Allah's allegations that there are deaths in the border area of Al-​​Raqo, with the Saudi forces dealing with them, are untrue."

"Dozens of migrants were killed in the process of forced displacement and armed clashes launched by the Houthis," SPAreported, citing the US-backed Saudi coalition allegations in the statement.

Hasan, father of Abdullah, from Al-Marawi`ah District of the port city of Al-Hudaydah, denied the Saudi allegations and accused the Saudi Army of killing his son Abdullah. "He was killed by a Saudi bullet over a Saudi territory off Al-Raqo area."

Asked what job Abdullah was seeking in the Kingdom, he replied, "He used to work in restaurants."

Yemeni Ministry of Health said on May 12 in a statement that the torture and killing of the seven Yemeni citizens is “a full-fledged crime and a grave violation of international and humanitarian law...”

“The coalition continues to shed Yemeni blood by various means, whether by airstrikes, rocket-propelled grenades and artillery, or torture till death,” it added.

Million, 620 Thousand Workers Lost Jobs Due to US-Saudi Aggression, Siege

The Undersecretary of the [Sanaa gov.] Ministry of Finance for Planning and Statistics Affairs revealed Friday the repercussions of the seven years of the US-Saudi aggression and siege on the workforce in Yemen.

In a special investigation for Almasirah, Ahmed Hajar confirmed that a million and 620 thousand workers lost their jobs as a result of the aggression and siege.

Hajar indicated that nearly 3 million of the workforce in Yemen are in a state of unemployment and did not find job opportunities due to the aggression and the siege, noting that 38% of the workforce in Yemen was deprived of sources of income and the effects of this are rising daily.

Joint Statement on Safer Oil Tanker Threats in the Red Sea

Representatives of the Governments of the United States and the Netherlands have partnered to support the UN efforts to address and avert the economic, environmental, and humanitarian threats posed by the Safer oil tanker in the Red Sea region.

Today, Dutch Ambassador to the United States André Haspels hosted a meeting joined by U.S. Special Envoy Lenderking, Yemeni Ambassador to the United States Mohammed al-Hadrami, and representatives from the diplomatic community in Washington, D.C. They stressed the importance of raising $144 million to fund the UN’s operational plan, which includes $80 million for an emergency operation to offload the oil from the Safer to a temporary vessel. At the pledging event co-hosted by the UN and the Netherlands earlier this month, nearly half the funds required for the emergency operation were raised, but more is urgently needed to move forward.

The Safer is a rapidly decaying and unstable supertanker that contains four times the amount of oil spilled by the Exxon Valdez.

We urge public and private donors to consider generous contributions to help prevent a leak, spill, or explosion, whose effects would destroy livelihoods, tourism, and commerce in one of the world’s vital shipping lanes.

Ticking Time Bomb

ONE OF THE LARGEST OIL TANKERS IN THE WORLD IS RUSTING AWAY IN THE RED SEA OFF THE COAST OF YEMEN. ON BOARD, IT HAS OVER 140,000 TONNES OF CRUDE OIL STORED. AN ENVIRONMENTAL AND HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN IF COUNTRIES DON’T ACT QUICKLY.

Moored in the Red Sea, around 4.8 nautical miles off the coast of Yemen, the FSO Safer has made headlines around the world for a few years – for all the wrong reasons. The floating oil storage and offloading vessel holds over 1.14 million barrels of crude oil which makes it one of the world’s largest oil tankers. Built in Japan in 1976, it has been moored in the Red Sea and has been left exposed to humidity and corrosion with little or no maintenance since Yemen’s civil war started in 2015. It is not insured and has been left without maintenance for the last seven years.

On board the rusting tanker is a small crew working desperately to keep the tanker afloat and secure and they managed, so far, to prevent a major catastrophe. Despite their efforts however, leaks have happened in the past. The most serious one occurred in May 2020 when seawater entered the engine room. It took five days to stop the leak.

If all the oil on board was to spill, the disaster would be four times bigger than the Exxon Valdez oil spill. It would cause widespread environmental damage to the fragile marine environments of the Red Sea, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Yemen and affecting neighbouring countries. Such a spill would force the closure of the local port of Hodeidah through which 68% of the aid and supplies flow. It could impact food supplies for 8.4 million people, drinking water for 10 million people and the livelihoods and health of 1.7 million fishermen and coastal communities.

Yemen: Ending the siege of Taiz is an urgent humanitarian priority

The parties to the conflict in Yemen should urgently work to end the siege of the city of Taiz and take all possible steps to reduce the suffering of millions living there, Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor said Thursday in a statement.

The difficult humanitarian conditions in Taiz necessitate prioritizing lifting the siege during the current talks, especially in light of the ongoing truce and the implementation of some of its provisions, such as stopping the military operations and conducting the first commercial flight from Sanaa International Airport in six years.

The talks that began on Wednesday in the Jordanian capital, Amman, between the delegations of the Yemeni government and the Houthi group should discuss opening roads in Taiz and the rest of the regions to enable residents to exercise their right to freedom of movement.

The Houthi group, which has been controlling most of the vital ports of Taiz since 2015, has continued to close the supply route and impede the flow of humanitarian aid to the besieged population, in addition to restricting the movement of the population and forcing them to take long, rugged, and dangerous roads that have caused dozens of civilian deaths in separate incidents throughout the past several years.

The bombing and sniping operations carried out by the Houthi group at varying rates during the past seven years led to hundreds of civilians being killed and thousands wounded. A human rights report documented 365 civilian deaths as a result of sniping operations carried out by the group’s militants in the city between 2015 and the end of 2020.

Euro-Med Monitor's Chief Operating Officer, Anas Aljerjawi, said: "Despite the horrific humanitarian crisis caused by the siege, the action made to end this tragedy remains largely limited. The besieged residents have not seen any positive outcomes to the announced truce, and there is no prospect of easing the Houthi-imposed siege so far.”

"The United Nations' initiative and sponsorship of the truce make it responsible for pressuring various parties to implement all the agreement's provisions, foremost of which is the opening of roads in Taiz and allowing freedom of movement and the flow of humanitarian supplies."

Yemen’s unification is a divisive chapter in history

Yemen marked 32 years of unification, but this was not a celebration for all. The southern separatist movement still remembers it as a bitter defeat against the north, this is a challenge for the new leadership council

As Yemen’s 32nd national unification anniversary approached, people in southern and northern Yemen displayed various sentiments. Some cherish this occasion while others detest it.

Nonchalance is the general attitude of many when it comes to discussing the national unity of the country.

Every year on May 22, authorities in Yemen celebrate the anniversary of this occasion. However, the country’s unification has sustained severe scars since its birth in 1990

The question remains, however, whether the new leadership council will wipe out the idea of secession from the south and restore the reverence for unity among all southerners?

Unquestionably, this is an arduous task. Afterall, the memories of wars that ensued following the unification of the two regions, remain amongst the people.

Moreover, the southern separatists are no longer an armless group that can be easily contained. The political and military muscles of the secessionists have actually grown over the last few years.

Two significant moments in the country’s history that led to this reality are the destructive wars that were launched by the northern forces.

Though the regime of President Saleh launched important development projects in the education, health and tourism sectors across the southern provinces, some southerners feel that this is not an adequate alternative to the independence of their country.

Whilst the southern movement which came into being in 2006, was initially peaceful, as time went by, it grew increasingly confrontational when it came to government forces.

Saudi Arabia keeps intervening to bring the STC and the Yemeni government together. In fact, the formation of the Presidential Leadership Council was the result of Riyadh-hosted talks on Yemen.

Regardless of the number of the southern people who seek self-determination, it is clear that war has severely scarred Yemen’s unification since the early 90s.

As long as Yemen’s new internationally recognised leadership council is unable to dismantle the Houthi group in the north, it will be difficult to stop the separatist vision in the south. Attempting to prevent pro-separation actions will also undoubtedly lead to rising tensions and eventually, potential escalation.

The new Fronts of the Yemen War

A new phase is unfolding in the Yemen war as it enters its eighth year following the Houthi coup d’état and takeover of the capital, Sana’a in September 2014. The Saudi-led coalition that was forged to support President Hadi against the Iranian-backed coup has reverted to the large-scale military operations triggered by Operation Decisive Storm in March 2015. Yet, this time the Houthis have managed to expand the theater of operations to international trade routes and the regional capital of economic stability, Abu Dhabi.

This analysis discusses the new military operation and This analysis discusses the new military operation and highlights the key parties involved in the offensive to fight the Houthis in the governorates of Marib and Shabwa in particular. The possibility of expanding the theater of military operations to new zones beyond the oil- and gasrich areas, and the Saudi motives behind launching this operation will also be addressed.

The paper also discusses the Houthi drone attack on Abu Dhabi on January 17 in response to the new military operation. It attempts to answer the following questions: What repercussions does the attack have on Abu Dhabi's strategy in Yemen? How does it affect the UAE-Iranian and Saudi-Iranian consultations, and the tension in the Gulf waters? What are the repercussions of these developments on the US and international positions towards the Houthis?

A FRAGILE LIVELIHOOD IN YEMEN

Photojournalist Asmaa Waguih Captures a Nation at War, at Work, at Rest

Cairo-based photojournalist Asmaa Waguih has always felt a close connection to Yemen, her Red Sea neighbor. Her father was an Egyptian military officer who fought in the country for many years.

She has visited the country six times since 2016, reporting on the war there between its internationally-recognized government, backed by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and the Houthi militia, a religious and political movement alleged to be receiving military support from Iran.

Recently, Waguih went back again.

She wound her way through both Sunni-dominated government-controlled territories and Shiite-aligned Houthi controlled areas. She arrived in Seiyun, in Yemen’s government-controlled eastern region, on February 25. From Seiyun, she travelled 30 hours by road to Sanaa, Yemen’s traditional capital in the Houthi-controlled north, then to Mocha, where she visited a large camp for internally displaced people, and finally another day’s drive to the government’s entrepot capital, Aden.

Along the way she passed clusters of settlements across Yemen’s mountainous arid terrain, each distinguished by an array of hillside towers, archways, rainbow-colored windows, and earthen walls. Yemen is a landscape of small towns, villages, and a few larger cities, mainly along its coast. Roads across its desert expanses are often unpaved and remote. Waguih travelled in crowded, unreliable mini-buses.

Throughout her journey, she saw the impact of war and the fractured movement of civilians and goods. In much of the country, life carries on—fishermen cast their lines, bookstores sell their tomes, devotees go to mosque. But everything is under threat, anything that still works is fragile. And there are pockets of immense suffering.

Leben für Menschen mit Behinderung im Jemen katastrophal

Im Jemen ist das Leben für Menschen mit Behinderung besonders prekär und gefährlich. Viele leben in ständiger Angst, verletzt zu werden, da sie nicht in der Lage sind, vor Explosionen oder bewaffneten Zusammenstößen zu fliehen. Außerdem werden sie oftmals ausgegrenzt, nicht ausreichend versorgt und haben kaum Zugang zu Hilfsmaßnahmen.

Zahlreiche Menschen mit Behinderung kämpfen zudem mit psychischen Belastungen. Dies ist das Ergebnis der Studie „Unshielded, Unseen" , die Handicap International (HI) zusammen mit der Arab Human Rights Foundation erstellt hat. Nach Schätzungen der Weltgesundheitsorganisation haben mindestens 4,8 Millionen Menschen im Jemen eine Behinderung. Diese Zahl hat seit Beginn des Krieges erheblich zugenommen. Grund dafür sind die vielen Verletzungen durch Explosivwaffen, die schlechte Gesundheitsversorgung und die zahlreichen zerstörten Gesundheitseinrichtungen.

In der Studie wird die Umsetzung der „Resolution 2475“ des Sicherheitsrates der Vereinten Nationen über den Schutz von Menschen mit Behinderung in bewaffneten Konflikten im Jemen untersucht. 81 Prozent der von Handicap International befragten Menschen mit Behinderung gaben an, dass sie keinen Zugang zu humanitärer Unterstützung haben: Sie leben zu weit entfernt, sie können sich den Transport nicht leisten oder die Straßen sind zu gefährlich, weil sie mit Landminen und Blindgängern übersät sind. Darüber hinaus werden sie oftmals stigmatisiert und ihre besonderen Bedürfnisse werden nicht beachtet.

„Menschen mit Behinderung haben uns berichtet, dass sie Angst haben, nach draußen zu gehen. Sie leben in ständiger Furcht, verletzt zu werden, da sie nur schwer vor Bombenangriffen oder Explosionen fliehen können. Viele Menschen mit Hörbehinderungen beispielsweise wurden in Konflikten verletzt, weil sie nicht hören und verstehen konnten, was vor sich ging“, sagt Yasmine Dealman, HI-Expertin in Aden.

Außerdem lebten viele in Lagern für Binnenflüchtlinge unter prekären Bedingungen, da diese nicht auf die Bedürfnisse für behinderte Menschen ausgerichtet seien, so Dealman weiter.

Zwischenbericht 2022 der Jemen Kinderhilfe e.V.

bedingt durch die Coronapandemie, die auch im Jemen entsetzlich gewütet hat, konnte unser Kinderhaus in Taiz nicht fertig gestellt werden. Aus Sicherheitsgründen wurden keine Handwerker eingelassen. Jetzt scheint sich auch im Jemen die Lage gebessert zu haben, so dass wir in Kürze die Kosten für den weiteren Ausbau überweisen werden.

Die obdachlosen Frauen/Kriegswitwen, die mit ihren Kindern Schutz bei uns gefunden haben, wollen nicht länger untätig herumsitzen. Sie wollen nähen. Wir haben für sie eine Nähmaschine und eine ganz kleine Nähmaschine gekauft. Zunächst wurden nach deutschem Muster Masken zum Verkauf genäht. Die Jemeniten weigern sich jedoch Masken zu tragen. So haben die Frauen jetzt begonnen Kleider für sich und die Kinder im Haus zu nähen.

Arafat, einer unsere Ärzte in unserem Krankenhaus in Al Mihlaf, hat mir berichtet, dass so oft kranke, unterernährte Kinder zu ihm gebracht werden, denen er nicht helfen kann. Die Menschen essen zum Teil bereits Blätter von den Bäumen. Gemeinsam mit dem „Förderverein Aktion Jemenhilfe e.V.“ haben wir beschlossen zu helfen. Es bekommen jetzt 361 bedürftige Familien, das sind über 2 000 Menschen, monatlich Mehl, Reis, Bohnen oder Linsen, Zucker und Öl von uns. Allein hierfür benötigen wir jeden Monat 15 000€!

ENHANCED SECURITY AND PROTECTION AT THE LOCAL LEVEL IN YEMEN

Project Summary

Armed conflict has weakened the social networks that ordinarily help maintain peaceful relation-ships within the families and communities of Yemen. Since March 2015, Yemeni health facilities have documented 8,757 conflict-related deaths and over 50,610 injuries. A range of human rights violations have been documented – affecting women and children in particular – with begging, child labour and forced marriage reportedly increased.

The Enhanced Security and Protection at the Local Level in Yemen project intervenes at several levels. At the individual level, the project provides legal support to disadvantaged people, including marginalised people and prison detainees. At the community level, it helps people and communities identify the issues and challenges that are most important to them, and plan and cooperate with legal institutions. At the institutional level, the project assists local authorities to improve local justice and policing services while also preparing for the quick deployment of community police in the event of a peace agreement.

Project activities are anticipated to result in communities and vulnerable community members who are safer, more secure and better protected, as well as – following a peace agreement – preparedness to train and redeploy police.

Yemen Humanitarian Fund (YHF) 2021 Annual Report

FOREWORD

We are pleased to present the 2021 Yemen Humanitarian Fund (YHF) Annual Report. The report provides a detailed overview of YHF expenditure, management and accountability. It shows how the Fund helped to address the needs of the most vulnerable people in Yemen, which remains one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.

Twenty-five donors generously contributed over US$96 million to the Fund in 2021, making it one of the largest OCHA-managed country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) in the world. The funding made it possible to allocate more than $109 million to support almost 5.8 million people in need through 106 projects implemented by 51 partners across 21 governorates in Yemen.

Humanitarian needs continued to deepen in 2021, driven by escalating conflict and a spiraling economic crisis. The situation was made worse by torrential rains and flooding, a protracted fuel crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The YHF support was complemented by the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), which mobilized resources to meet priority needs. The two Funds provided $149 million for life-saving assistance in 2021. For instance, in May, a CERF rapid response allocation of nearly $40 million supported UN agencies and partners’ response to large-scale displacement and worsening living conditions of displaced populations in Al Jawf and Marib Governorates.
It enabled the immediate scale-up of the response capacity by providing air transport and logistics support for humanitarian partners and delivering life-saving, multisectoral services. This was complemented by the first YHF allocation of $50.4 million in June, which supported life-saving shelter and NFI assistance, the provision of rental subsidies for vulnerable displaced people and minority groups, and gender-based violence prevention and response interventions in the two governorates. The YHF continued implementing an area-based and integrated response, focusing on multi-cluster interventions in Tai’z, Al Hodeidah and Ma’rib Governorates. This approach has strengthened planning and complementarity among clusters and partners who joined up forces to maximize the impact of their interventions. These three governorates, which combine multiple levels of vulnerabilities, received $103 million out of the joint $149 million allocated by YHF and CERF.

In 2022, the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP) requires $4.27 billion to reverse a steady deterioration of the humanitarian situation. It targets 17.3 million out of the 23.4 million people

Rapid Response Mechanism (RRM) Annual Report January 1st - December 31rd, 2020 and 2021: Al-Bayda, Marib and Sana'a Governorates

PREFACE

Rapid response mechanism (RRM) is an emergency response modality for delivering humanitarian aid to vulnerable people, including children, displaced by ongoing insecurity. RRM humanitarian aid provides within 48 to 72 hours of displacement. To respond to the immediate needs of the displaced persons, the UN established a rapid response mechanism (RRM) to provide Yemenis with emergency lifesaving packages.

UNFPA is leading the operation of the RRM project of three agencies i.e., UNFPA, UNICEF, and WFP to distribute immediate, most critical life-saving emergency supplies to families who are newly displaced, on the move, in hard-to-reach areas or stranded close to the front lines, as well as most vulnerable returnees. The RRM minimum assistance package is comprised of these components: (1) ready to eat food provided by WFP; (2) family basic hygiene kits provided by UNICEF; and (3) one female dignity/transit kit provided by UNFPA. As it shows in the following Figure (1).

Stopping one of the biggest threats to child survival

How UNICEF is working to end severe wasting.

Many people have never heard of severe wasting, also known as ‘severe acute malnutrition’. But that doesn’t change how excruciatingly painful the condition – which is caused by a lack of nutritious food and repeated bouts of diseases such as diarrhoea, measles and malaria – is for the millions of children battling it. Children with severe wasting are thin and frail. Their immune systems are weak, leaving them vulnerable to developmental delays, disease and death.

Around 1 in 5 deaths among children under 5 are attributed to severe wasting. But while the scale of the problem is clear, so are the solutions – including early detection, expanding treatment services, and increasing access to lifesaving ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF).

UNICEF is working with partners across the globe to support the early detection and treatment of children with wasting and other life-threatening forms of malnutrition – to save their lives and put them on the path to healthy growth and development.

In Yemen, after more than seven years of war and economic decline, around 17.4 million people are in need of food assistance, while a growing portion of the population is struggling with emergency levels of hunger. UNICEF is prioritizing lifesaving treatment and preventive acute malnutrition services in the country, and during 2022 aims to admit more than 360,000 children aged 6 to 59 months with severe acute malnutrition for treatment.

Malnutrition Overview

Analysis of the Current Malnutrition Situation in Yemen

Dimensions and Social Factors Contributing to Malnutrition

Dimensions and Economic Factors Contributing to Malnutrition

Impacts of malnutrition on social and economic development in Yemen (economic cost)

Social Policies and by Other Sectors to Address Malnutrition

Recommendations and Priority Actions

Introduction

Malnutrition is one of the world’s most serious but leased-addressed development challenges. Its human and economic costs are enormous, falling hardest on the poor, women, and children.

By March 2022, Yemen had nearly 2.2 million children who suffer from one form of acute malnutrition1. To put things in perspective, a SAM child is ten times more at risk of death if not treated on time than a healthy child his or her age.

This means the child will be less likely to grow to his/her fullest potential, let alone other development related impediments, including disruption to their cognitive skills and less future economic opportunities. Malnutrition does also undermines the ability by the country to develop human capital. Given the conditions unfolding in Yemen, malnutrition could have irreparable damages to the child's cognitive skills and development, and other consequences on education, income and productivity that extend through adulthood. The economic cost of undernutrition, in terms of national losses in productivity and economic growth are huge, given the additional burdens of malnutrition due to the current conditions in Yemen and their ensuing repercussions, including higher number of poor people who suffer from extreme poverty, which increases in their vulnerability in the face of health and economic shocks. Therefore, malnutrition is one of the key and difficult impediments to development in Yemen, and without concerted actions at the national and international levels, the issue would remain largely unaddressed.

Despite this growing concern, it is encouraging that these losses can largely be avoided if sufficient investments are made in proven interventions, especially those focusing on achieving optimal nutrition in the first crucial 1,000 since conception till the child reaches 2 years. Reducing malnutrition in Yemen is critical to develop the human capital being a major driver of sustainable growth and poverty reduction, and can have a significant impact on the HDI Index. To achieve an optimal level of nutrition, the poor people in Yemen shall have access to the resources and services they need.

Desert locust upsurge: Progress report on the response in the Greater Horn of Africa and Yemen, September–December 2021

This sixth and final progress report details FAO’s work to mitigate the effects of the desert locust upsurge – an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods – across the Greater Horn of Africa and Yemen between September and December 2021, while outlining the outcomes of the response in all of 2021.

Overall, resource partners contributed USD 230.5 million towards FAO’s desert locust crisis appeal for the Greater Horn of Africa and Yemen between January 2020 and December 2021. The fully funded appeal allowed ground and aerial operations to treat nearly 2.3 million ha of desert locust-infested land in the targeted countries during this period. These efforts averted 4.5 million tonnes of crop losses, saved 900 million litres of milk production, and secured food for 41.5 million people. The commercial value of the cereal and milk losses averted through the response is estimated at USD 1.77 billion. By the end of 2021, FAO had completed the delivery of livelihood packages reaching over 305 000 households, providing them with the means to meet their immediate needs and to restore their productive capacity.

A PATH TO RECOVERY FOR MIGRANTS IN YEMEN INJURED ON NORTHWARD JOURNEY

IOM found in a study last year that more than two-thirds of first-time migrants were not aware of the conflict in Yemen, and 85 per cent do not know they would not have enough food or water on the route to Yemen before they depart.

It took Jaber several months to eventually reach the northern part of Yemen. He eventually became stranded in a town called Rada when he failed to cross the border to KSA.

Tens of thousands of migrants are currently stranded across Yemen – hindered by conflict and smugglers from reaching their destination or returning home.

Migrants live in dire conditions, without access to necessities like water, food and sanitation. They also cannot afford proper health care, which puts their lives at risk when they become sick or injured.

As the night crept in, an old boat sailed on the dark waters of the Red Sea. The vessel barely held together as it struggled to stay afloat and reach the shore with its heavy load.

People were cramped inside the boat. Some had no space but to stand, while those seated struggled for air. The travelers looked exhausted and scared, some of them were sick. It had been days since they had a proper meal, and the smugglers did not make things easier for them.

On this night, Jaber – a 20-year-old man from Ethiopia – was unaware of what awaited him on his journey. He arrived to Yemen’s shores exhausted but with the hope that he was nearing the start of a better life.

He is one of the nearly 27,700 migrants who arrived to Yemen last year. Upon reaching the coast, most migrants walk for days to reach the urban hub of Aden before making their way north toward the border of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) where they hope to find work.

Most of those travelling are like him: young boys or men from rural areas with little to no education.

UN drops names of 2.6 million Sunni IDPs from humanitarian aid: Reports

In a confirmation of the complaints and grievances of beneficiaries themselves, a senior Yemeni humanitarian aid official has accused the UN of dropping 2.6 million names from the humanitarian aid entitlement list in the regions controlled "by the government" and Arab coalition-backed forces where the majority of Yemeni IDPs live.

The chief of the Executive Unit for the Management of IDPs Camps Najib Al-Saadi told Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper that the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) diverted this aid to the regions of the (Shiit theocratic) Houthi militia

Al-Saadi also accused members of the "government" in Aden of colluding with that UN misconduct.

He said, "The officials in the Executive Unit once entered into long discussions with the OCHA and the IOM for the latter is the one that the UN agencies commissioned to track displacements. It became clear that they (the OCHA and IOM) have no surveys. Next, the OCHA and the IOM closely looked in the methodology that the Executive Unit used to conduct surveys and gather data on displacements, they agreed to use those statistics. After that, to the Executive Unit's surprise, the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation agreed on an [IDPs] list presented by the OCHA for all the mistakes in it."

Support for healthcare services in Yemen

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation is continuing its aid projects in Yemen. Aside from assisting the healthcare center established in the Marib province to provide healthcare services to war victims, IHH also carried out cataract surgeries on 121 patients living in the Ahrar Valley.

Various diseases caused by the lack of clean water and malnutrition are spreading rapidly in many regions of Yemen, including in the tent cities. If these diseases are not treated properly and timely, they can become chronic illnesses.

Initial treatment is provided in the healthcare center

As part of its aid projects in Yemen, IHH continues to assist the healthcare center established 4 years ago to provide healthcare services to the people in the tent city.

Yemen: UNHCR Operational Update, covering the period from 10 to 24 May 2022

UNHCR and food security data reveal a strong correlation between displacement and extreme acute food insecurity. Out of the 4.3 million vulnerable IDP population across Yemen, over 88 per cent (3.8 million individuals) are projected to live in districts categorized as being in an emergency food insecure situation, a phase just below the worst catastrophe phase.

Multiple fire incidents reported in several IDP sites in Hudaydah and Marib governorates. Up to 10 fire incidents were recorded in IDP sites during the reporting period, namely in Hudaydah (seven fire incidents) and Marib (three incidents).

Emergency cash assistance continues alleviating the suffering of individuals in an extremely vulnerable situation. During the reporting period over 30 individuals benefited from emergency cash assistance in Hudaydah and Sa’ada governorates.

More than 1,200 refugees, asylum-seekers and Yemenis assisted through UNHCR-supported clinics.

Site Maintenance Final Report 2020 - Several Gov

Following the outbreak of the conflict in Yemen on March 2015, a major humanitarian crisis has led to massive displacement of Yemenis across the country especially in areas with active military actions. The conflict has also severely affected the host communities and placed a major strain on the already very limited resources and public services. The majority of the current IDP population in many governorates lives with host communities (either in rented accommodations or with relatives). However, as the crisis continues and the absorption capacity and coping mechanisms of host families dwindle, a significant number of IDP have been forced to move into schools, hotels, government buildings and other empty buildings, turning them into collective centers. Alternatively, some IDPs resort to establishing or moving to spontaneous settlements; erecting tents or makeshift shelters often in lands where they have no legal claim to and with the intention to stay for an extended period of time. Those informal settlements usually suffer from overcrowding, severe damage, suboptimal conditions, inefficient services, and access constraints.

BFD will ensure that Maintenance of sites and surrounding areas in order to improve the living conditions of IDPs through site development, care, and maintenance.

Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi indicated, during his meeting, Monday, with a delegation from the Dhamar tribes, that the Zionist attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque are provocative and meant to introduce the idea of demolishing Al-Aqsa in the future.

The Leader of the revolution considered Zionists' attacks as preliminary steps which aim to reach declared goal of demolishing Al-Aqsa Mosque. "The Jewish-Zionist threat is a danger and a threat to all Muslims, and it targets the sanctities of the nation," he said.

"We say, with all sincerity, that we are part of the equation that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah announced earlier that we will be at the vanguard of the fighters in the path of God against the Zionist Entity."

Sayyed Abdulmalik noted that "at a time when normalizing regimes create an alliance with the Jews, the nation's first enemy, they are presenting themselves as enemies to the freedom fighters in Palestine," adding that "Zionist criminals are being hosted in Riyadh and the Emirates in the name of religion and so-called religious conferences."

Selbsternannte jemenitische Regierung hat Ölfelder an VAE verkauft

Die selbsternannte jemenitische Regierung hat mit Unterstützung Saudi-Arabiens ein Ölfeld in der südöstlichen Provinz Shabwah des Landes an die Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate (VAE) – einem Schlüsselakteur im von Saudi-Arabien geführten Krieg gegen den Jemen – verkauft, heißt es in Berichten.

Die Website Al-Khabar al-Yemeni berichtete am Sonntag, dass das Ölministerium der selbsternannten Regierung von Moein Abdel-Malik bestätigt habe, dass ein wichtiger „Ölsektor“ in Shabwah verkauft worden sei.

In einer Erklärung sagte das Ministerium, dass „Sektor 5“ an ein lokales Unternehmen übergeben wurde, das mit dem Ministerium verbunden ist. Der Name des Unternehmens wurde jedoch nicht genannt.

Frühere Berichte besagten jedoch, das Ministerium habe ein wichtiges Ölfeld an „ein fiktives Unternehmen mit Sitz im Hafen von Jebel Ali“ in Dubai, VAE, verkauft und enthüllt, wie die Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate von ihrer Beteiligung am Jemenkrieg profitieren.

Al-Khabar al-Yemeni merkte an, dass die Erklärung des Ministeriums auch einen Tag kam, nachdem die von den Vereinigten Arabischen Emiraten unterstützte Giants Brigade die Verantwortung für die Sicherung des Ölfelds übernommen hatte, das täglich Zehntausende Barrel Öl produziert.

Self-proclaimed Yemeni government sold oil field to UAE: Reports

The self-proclaimed Yemeni government, backed by Saudi Arabia, has sold an oil field in the country’s southeast province of Shabwah to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a key participant in the Saudi-led war against Yemen, reports say.

Al-Khabar al-Yemeni website reported on Sunday that the oil ministry of the self-proclaimed government of Moein Abdel-Malik has confirmed that an important “oil sector” in Shabwah had been sold.

In a statement, the ministry said that “Sector 5” has been handed over to a local company affiliated with the ministry. However, it did not name the company.

This comes while earlier reports said the ministry had sold an important oil field to “a fictitious company based at the port of Jebel Ali” in Dubai, UAE, exposing how the UAE is profiting from its involvement in the Yemen war.

Al-Khabar al-Yemeni noted that the ministry’s statement also came a day after the UAE-backed Giants Brigade assumed the responsibility of securing the oil field that produces tens of thousands of barrels of oil daily.

At a time when indicators show that the coalition is no longer able to continue its military intervention in Yemen, the forces affiliated with the Emirates are competing with each other to gain favor in Abu Dhabi, where Tariq Afash is trying to impose himself as the influential force to receive the legacy of the coalition in Yemen, while the Transitional Council is considered Himself the holder of the historical right to represent any tendencies that might go to separate southern Yemen from the north.

Instead of the conflict that was raging between the Transitional Council and the Islah party, new parties entered the map of confrontations in the occupied areas of Yemen. Heralding a new phase of the conflict that seems fiercer than before. With the attendant repercussions on the deteriorating economic situation in the occupied territories in particular, and Yemen in general.

Perhaps the explosion that took place today, Thursday, in a market crowded with citizens, in the center of the city of Aden, leaving 40 civilians dead and wounded, reveals the growing level of conflicts, and what the situation can lead to in terms of killings and terrorism in Aden and the rest of the occupied areas.

Observers believe that the explosions, which have recorded a remarkable growth in the city of Aden, since the return of the Riyadh Presidential Council, actually reflect the severity of the differences that afflict the forces loyal to the coalition.

A number of political analysts say that the tension in the situation in Aden will not take long before it erupts in the form of bloody battles between the rival forces, drowning the occupied areas in seas of blood.

STC militias arrest Al-Alimi in Aden

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militias arrested on Thursday a member of the Riyadh-formed Presidential Council in the city of Aden, while he was leaving, south of Yemen.

According to local news in the city, the “STC” militia at Aden airport arrested the member, Abdullah Al-Alimi, while he was leaving Aden airport on a Yemeni flight to Cairo airport, in addition to the arrest of other officials in the coalition-run government of Maeen Abdul-Malik.

The sources indicated that the militia forced Al-Alimi and the other officials to return to the Al-Ma’asheq Palace and put them under house arrest, until improving the service situation in the city of Aden, which is suffering a complete collapse in electricity, water, and health.

The STC seeks to exacerbate the situation in the city of Aden, and its refusal to integrate its militias into the framework of the council headed by Rashad Al-Alimi.

During the past few days, the STC militias had threatened to detonate the situation in the city of Aden.
