The United Nations calls for an end to hostilities in Marib and confirms the displacement of 8,000 people





The United Nations confirmed the displacement of at least 8,000 people in the Yemeni governorate of Ma’rib in recent weeks due to the escalation of hostilities, the vast majority of them women and children.

Since the beginning of February, the terrorist Houthi militia has escalated its terrorist operations in Marib Governorate.

At the daily press conference from the permanent headquarters in New York, Stephane Dujarric, spokesperson for the Secretary-General of the United Nations, said, “We continue our call for an immediate end to violence in Marib and the rest of the country, and we encourage all parties in Yemen to redouble their efforts to support the work of (UN envoy) Martin Griffiths on … Achieving a political solution and a nationwide ceasefire as soon as possible. “

Dujarric added that the displacement cases in Marib add to the high levels of displacement and the humanitarian needs in that governorate. According to humanitarian agencies, displacement to and within Marib accounted for two thirds of the total displacement cases in Yemen last year.

Regarding the latest developments regarding the Safir reservoir, Dujarric told reporters that the Houthi group had recently submitted “additional requests”, indicating that the Houthi militia continued to refuse to maintain the tank.
