Childern have dropped out of education since 2015, while international organizations say about 2,500 schools have been destroyed or partially damaged or turned into shelters for displaced people.
In spite of the severe damage caused by the coalition to the education sector in Yemen, as well as the killing thousands of students and educational staff, the Yemenis steadfastness led them to continue studying and teaching in these destroyed schools.
Targeting the educational process is one of the most dangerous effects to the country’s present and future.
The Siyag’s organization for protection of childhood describes the situation of education in Yemen as catastrophic, warning that this danger and its devastating consequences. The UNICEF report said more than 11 million children in Yemen need food, treatment, education and water, and that a child dies every 10 minutes.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
