UN Migration Agency Responds to Displacement Caused by Fighting in Yemen’s Capital

Renewed clashes between rival forces at the end of last month have affected several parts of Yemen’s capital, Sana’a. In addition to the 234 casualties it caused, the brutal fighting triggered large-scale displacement to neighboring governorates.

In response to this sudden displacement, IOM, the UN Migration Agency immediately began providing humanitarian assistance to displaced people and people affected by the conflict using prepositioned stocks and its medical teams.

“It is very sad that due to clashes, we have to limit our assistance,” said Hazim Torlic, IOM Yemen Officer in Charge. “Even though this is when it is needed most.”

Since the start of the conflict in March 2015, IOM has reached 219,804 displaced people in 14 of Yemen’s 21 Governorates with similar humanitarian relief.

Despite the fierce clashes in the past two weeks, IOM has continued its humanitarian assistance operations in the Country, and nearly 25,480 people have been reached with support in Taizz, Ibb, Hajja and Amran Governorates.
