Saudi war machine kills 3 Yemeni civilians every day: Report

 

Every day, three civilians are killed in Yemen amid the deadly campaign led by the regime in Riyadh against the impoverished country, says a report co-sponsored by aid group Oxfam.

Since mid-December 2018, persisting violence and war have killed one person every eight hours, according to the report, which was published on Tuesday.

The report further said the number of fatalities had doubled in the provinces of Hajjah and Ta'izz.

Although a truce had reduced hostilities in Hudaydah, the report said, a third of over 230 civilians killed nationwide, including 56 children, were reported in that province. 

Civilian death toll, which the UN reported was as high as 100 a week in 2018, has dropped but it remains unacceptably high following the ceasefire, the report said.
