Author: UNFPA Yemen


Conflict, protracted displacement, disease and deprivation continue to inflict suffering on the country’s population.

Disruption to commercial imports, inflation, lack of salary payment to civil servants and rising prices of basic commodities exacerbate people’s vulnerability.

Sporadic fighting, shelling and bombardment continued to pose a threat to civilians in Al Hudaydah City and in other parts of the governorate. In Al Hudaydah City, clashes persisted in the east and northeast of the city, with up to 1,460 civilian casualties estimated in November and damage to 200 homes, and an unspecified number farms and humanitarian sites.
