SANA'A January 25. 2023 (Saba) - The undersigned civil and human rights organizations express their deep concern about the continued exacerbation of the human suffering in Yemen, which is entering the 8th year of war and blockade, with the tragic humanitarian conditions at all levels, the scarcity of aid that does not meet the minimum requirements, and the catastrophic escalation in numbers which threatens more than 20 million Yemeni citizens with famine and starvation, with the interruption of salaries and wages and the continuation of restrictions imposed on ports and airports.

The number of victims of bombing and siege - according to statistics issued by Yemeni human rights organizations - among children and women over eight years, exceeded 13,437 dead and injured, and the number of dead women and children reached 6312, including 2436 women and 3876 children, while the number of the injured women and children is 7125, including 2862 women and 4263 children.

As for the numbers of the displaced, it rose to 5.159.560 displaced people until the end of August 2022, within 740.122 families. According to a UN report, 60,000 women have lost their husbands, and the number of families headed by women at the level of Yemen has reached 417,000.

Moreover, nearly 6.1 million male and female students suffer from the collapse of the education system, and about 3,500 schools are either destroyed or damaged. There are also 2.400.000 children out of school, while the number of children who face interruption from education may rise to six million children. As for the number of persons with disabilities, it increased from three million before the aggression to 4.5 million now, of whom approximately 5559 are children, while the number of those affected by the remnants of the aggression increased to four thousand civilian victims, of whom about 131 children, including 25 dead, and 26 women. In addition, more than 2.3 million children under the age of five suffer from malnutrition, and 632000 children suffer from severe acute malnutrition, which threatens their lives with death during the current year. Besides, the presence of more than 1.5 million pregnant and lactating women who suffer from malnutrition, of which 650495 women are moderately malnourished.

It is known that a woman and six newborns die every two hours due to complications during pregnancy or childbirth, and the number of women who may lose their lives during pregnancy or childbirth is estimated at approximately 17.000 women.

Therefore, as the organizations signatory to this statement see, the human conscience must not ignore the suffering of the brotherly Yemeni people as a result of war, the scourge of siege, hunger, disease and death. It is also necessary to respond to the repeated humanitarian appeals issued by the vital sectors in Yemen, and more recently those issued by the health sector, as the necessity to avert a real catastrophe that threatens the lives of five thousand patients with kidney failure, as stocks of dialysis drugs are depleted from stores. There is a total paralysis of the health system, with the continued denial of entry to medical devices, necessary spare parts, first aid supplies and life-saving medicines that thousands of patients depend on, such as cancer patients, kidney transplant patients, thalassemia, diabetes, heart patients, and others. This is in addition to the ongoing blockade and restrictions on oil derivatives needed by all service sectors.

It is a human duty for the world today not to stand watching, with the continuation of the war and the blockade and their long-term effects on the Yemeni people, including on the human psyche, especially children, at a time when immediate and urgent measures are required to prevent further humanitarian disasters. That makes us appeal to the United Nations, the Security Council and the Human Rights Council, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, UNESCO, and other concerned international organizations, to work according to their legal and humanitarian responsibilities to stop this sharp deterioration in the economic and service conditions and the spread of diseases and malnutrition, especially among the categories of children and women and in most Yemeni provinces without forgetting the repercussions of cutting the salaries of more than a million Yemeni employees who support millions of families that are today on the brink of death due to starvation and diseases.

The interruption of wages, as well as the continuation of the siege on Sana’a airport and the port of Hodeida, exacerbated the civilians' suffering and patients, in the health, food, industrial, commercial, educational and all service sectors, as a result of the difficulty of importing and the complexity of procedures that further deepened the crisis and suffering of the Yemeni people.

Based on these calls and the continuation of the painful human reality… we affirm the following:

  • Condemning the war on Yemen and its perpetrators, led by the "coalition countries", and demanding fair compensation for the destruction and losses that befell Yemen during the past eight years.
  • Urgent effective and positive action by all the free people of the world to stop the aggression and protect civilians, as well as to form an independent international commission of experts to investigate all crimes committed against the Yemeni people and hold accountable all those found involved in them. We also call for the formation of an independent international group of experts to open an investigation into war crimes, and aggression against Yemen and other violations of international humanitarian law during the past eight years.
  • Demanding the coalition countries to quickly pay employees' salaries in all provinces "without discrimination", and to lift the air-sea blockade, especially on Sana'a International Airport and Hodeida port, as a sign and indicator of peace and the beginning of ending the war on Yemen and responding to the basic requirements of its people.
  • Calling on democratic forces, trade unions and civil society organizations in both the United States and the European Union to put pressure on their countries to immediately stop arms exports to countries participating in the war on Yemen in order to provide a real opportunity for peace.
  • Refusal to politicize the true values and concepts of human and peoples' rights or use them for material interests. We also stress the need to respect Yemen's sovereignty, security, stability and territorial integrity.
  • Call for the release of all prisoners, the disclosure of the fate of the missing, the lifting of the siege, the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Yemen, as well as making more efforts for the peace process and dialogue between Yemen, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
  • Serious and effective action by the United Nations and its envoy to Yemen, in a way that contributes positively to serving civilians and alleviating their human and economic suffering, as well as not yielding to pressures that prevent effective and permanent solutions to suffering and increase the size of the damage inflicted on tens of millions of Yemenis.
  • All Yemeni parties sit at a Yemeni-Yemeni dialogue table, under the auspices of the United Nations, in order to agree on peaceful solutions that protect Yemeni society from conflicts that tear its social fabric, and in a manner that guarantees dignity for all Yemenis, based on internationally recognized principles of human and peoples’ rights, including Principles of transitional justice and non-impunity.
  • Enabling the Yemeni people to have the right to self-determination without any external interference, and to hold free and fair parliamentary and presidential elections, with the assistance and monitoring of the United Nations.
