(Report from UN Children’s Fund). On 26 March 2015, the conflict in Yemen escalated into a brutal war as violence gripped most of the country. The southern cities of Aden and Taiz are in ruins, the northern city of Sa’ada is wrecked and many other areas are extensively damaged. Yemen is in the midst of an acute humanitarian crisis. And there is no end in sight to the deadly conflict. Close to 10 million children face fear, pain and deprivation. Children do not start wars, yet are the most vulnerable to their deadly effects.
