Yemeni civilians are struggling to stay alive amid fierce ground and air attacks by Saudi-led coalition on Yemen port of Hodeidah.

Supplies of water and electricity have been disrupted. Hospitals do not have enough doctors and medicines. Worse still, many fear that the flames of war will be burning at the downtown area if street fights break out between the Saudi backed forces and Yemeni army.

The Saudi coalition continues its target of civilian sites, vital facilities and infrastructure in its war on Yemen.

The Saudi-led coalition attacks against the densely-populated city and the war-torn country’s most vital port was launched despite numerous warnings by the international community and prominent aid groups.

Since the outbreak of the war, several civilians have been injured or killed by shells and rockets. Many families have fled away. Those who are unable to leave can only stay at home.

Amnesty International in a new report has warned that recent conflict in Yemen is blocking the delivery of vital aid through the port of Hodeidah which threatens the lives of millions of people. The aggressive coalition exacerbates the already dire humanitarian situation in Yemen and violates international law.

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war on Yemen in March 2015 to reinstall the former Saudi-backed Hadi regime and crush the Houthi movement.

The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and an accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
