Two million and 600,000 displaced people in Yemen are facing food shortages, according to the United Nations.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said, in a tweet posted on its Twitter account, that “there are more than 2.6 million displaced people (out of 4 million) in Yemen, facing food shortages.”
For more than seven years, Yemen has been witnessing a war that has killed more than 233,000 people, and 80% of the population (amounting to 30 million people) has become dependent on aid to survive in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the United Nations.
The conflict is further complicated by the fact that it has regional extensions. Since March 2015, an Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia has been carrying out military operations in support of government forces against the Iranian-backed Houthis, who control several governorates, including the capital, Sanaa.
