Study: 17,729 Yemeni Civilians Killed or Injured by U.S.-Backed Strikes

HeadlineMar 27, 2019

A new study by the Yemen Data Project found more than 17,500 civilians have been killed or injured in air raids since the U.S.-backed assault began in March of 2015. A quarter of the more than 8,000 civilians killed were women and children. The war has devastated Yemen’s infrastructure and economy, pushing half of the country’s 28 million people to the brink of starvation.
