UN Reveals How 10,000 Civilians were Killed, Wounded in Yemen Conflict

The U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator reveals a “minimum” of 10,000 individuals have been slaughtered and injured in Yemen’s contention.

Jamie McGoldrick gave the overhauled toll to reporters in the capital, Sanaa, on Tuesday. At the point when asked by The Associated Press on the off chance that he was alluding to regular citizens, he said, “I never address combatants.”


Yemen’s conflict pits an internationally recognized government and a Saudi-led coalition against Shiite Houthi rebels and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was forced from power in 2012 following an Arab Spring uprising. Local affiliates of al-Qaida and the Islamic State group have exploited the chaos to expand their reach.

A day earlier, McGoldrick called for the reopening of the airport and the resumption of commercial flights into Sanaa, which fell to the Houthis in September 2014.
