In a joint statement, EU High Representative for the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, and European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides, said that “international law established to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure, in time of war, is violated Daily in Yemen

Shelling the schools, medical facilities, residential areas, markets, water distribution systems, ports and airports caused a great suffering for civilians. Yemen has become the worst humanitarian disaster in the world, with 22 million people in need
