Pace of Civilian Killings in Yemen Has Doubled Since U.N. Disbanded Monitoring Group

HeadlineFeb 11, 2022

A new report by the Norwegian Refugee Council found civilian casualties in Yemen have nearly doubled since the U.N. Human Rights Council voted to disband an independent monitoring group in October. In the four months since then, at least 1,535 civilians have been killed in Yemen’s civil war. Human rights groups say all parties in the conflict have committed serious violations, including Houthi artillery attacks on civilian areas and Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on hospitals, weddings and funerals.
