Photos: Yemen: Displaced in Sanaa’s Old City
Tehran(KNA): More than 10 percent of Yemen’s population has been forced to flee due to the ongoing conflict.
Mohammed Ali unloads jerry cans from his wheelbarrow in the Old City of Sanaa. The 33-year-old fled with 10 family members from Yemen’s northern province of Sa'ada, on the border with Saudi Arabia, after his house was destroyed.
Rocked by more than three years of conflict, the majority of those living in Yemen are in need of humanitarian assistance.
The civil war escalated in March 2015 when a Saudi-led coalition launch air attacks on Yemen against Houthi rebels captured much of the country.
Since then, more than 10,000 people have been killed, millions have been forced to flee and the country has been ravaged by disease and hunger.
