Int'l organizations call for ceasefire to transfer aid to Yemen
[11/May/2015]

SANA'A, May 12 (Saba) - A group of 17 international organization has condemned the heavy aerial bombardment on Sa'ada province.

In a press release issued on Monday, the international humanitarian organizations called for an immediate and permanent ceasefire to transfer humanitarian aid to Yemen, appealing to all to cease the immediate and permanent ceasefire as it regarded the only solution to put an end to millions of innocent lives suffering due to the unjust blockade in the country.

Director of Save the Children in Yemen Eduardo Santiago stressed the indiscriminate shelling after dropping leaflets urging civilians to leave Sa'ada raises concerns and breaches the international humanitarian law.

"Warning civilians do not absolve of the Saudi-led coalition responsibility for its duty to protect them, infrastructure and government facilities."

Mr. Santiago said that the warning time period made by the coalition was not sufficient for civilians to flee due to acute shortage of petroleum products and because of imposing blockade on Yemen which caused difficulty and impossibility to displace civilians in the length of time imposed by the coalition forces.

"We are concerned about the continued heavy shelling on the province of Sa'ada and this will do nothing to encourage all parties to the conflict to abide by the ceasefire," the country director of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) in Yemen said.

He confirmed the truce period determined by the coalition to stop the aerial bombardment with five days will not significantly change the lives of millions of Yemenis due to the huge size of aid and humanitarian needs required and which also growing on the ground.

"There is an urgent need to halt hostilities in order to move humanitarian aid to the country," said Daw Mohamed, Yemen country director for CARE International.
