Since the start of the Saudi-led coalition's war on Yemen in March 2015, civilian safety has never been a priority. Doctors Without Borders recently called the conflict "A war on civilians," and most Yemenis have nowhere safe to flee.
WHO has declared the total death toll above 4,300 as of August 2015, yet that number is likely much higher. Neither warring side has released numbers killed, and there have been hundreds of airstrikes where villagers bury their dead without reporting to local authorities.
The casualties of Yemen's war are not only airstrike deaths. Child acute malnutrition rates have skyrocketed, most clinics closed due to violence. Injured Yemenis are unable to get proper treatment in-country, and not allowed to travel outside, leaving them vulnerable to permanent disability. The psychological damage can not begin to be measured.
A blockade has prevented essential fuel, medical supplies, and food from entering the country, cut power lines have left Yemen in the dark and shut down hospitals. Without fuel, citizens can not flee from violence, reach health care, or power their homes and businesses.
As long as divided governments sit between Riyadh, Sana'a, and Aden, civilians will continue to suffer.
