star this property answer text <p>The Saudi-led Coalition continues to seek to reinstate the legitimate government in Yemen and defend its own southern border against artillery and missile strikes by Houthi forces and those allied to former President Saleh. Sporadic fighting is taking place in western Yemen, including along the Saudi border, around Midi, north east of Sana'a and in the vicinity of Sirwah. We remain concerned by the ability of terrorist organisations such as Al Qaeda and Daesh to exploit ungoverned spaces in Yemen. The conflict has also resulted in security threats to international shipping in the Bab-el-Mandeb. Restarting peace talks remains the priority: a political solution is the best way to bring stability to Yemen and address the worsening humanitarian crisis. The UK continues to play a leading role in international efforts to achieve this goal. The Yemeni parties must engage constructively and in good faith to find a political solution to end the conflict.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK supports the Saudi-led Coalition military intervention, which came at the request of legitimate President Hadi, to deter aggression by the Houthis, and allow for the return of the legitimate Yemeni government. We are aware of reports of alleged violations of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and we take these very seriously. It is important that credible allegations of violations of IHL are investigated. We regularly press the need for the Saudi-led Coalition to conduct thorough and conclusive investigations into reports of alleged violations of IHL. Saudi Arabia has publicly stated that it is investigating reports of alleged violations of IHL, and that lessons will be acted upon. We welcome the reports issued by the Joint Incidents Assessment Team, including the 15 reports issued on 12 September (taking the total number to 36). We will continue to press the Saudi-led Coalition to demonstrate its commitment to IHL.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Yemen is one of the most serious humanitarian crises in the world. According to the UN, almost 21 million people (over 75% of the population) are in need of humanitarian aid, with nearly 10 million in need of immediate help to save or sustain life. Yemen is also facing the world’s worst cholera outbreak with over 624,000 suspected cholera cases recorded since April and more than 2,000 deaths.</p><p>In response, the UK has increased our funding for Yemen to £139 million for 2017-18. This includes support for cholera prevention; the provision of medical supplies and treatment for those affected; as well as life-saving interventions including nutrition support to 1.7 million people and clean water and sanitation for 1.2 million people.</p><p>On the 11<sup>th</sup> August, the Secretary of State for International Development announced that we are targeting £8 million of our support to UNICEF and the International Organization for Migration on activities specifically to address cholera. The funding will be used to provide medical supplies to half a million people, give safe access to chlorinated water to 300,000 people, and rehabilitate medical facilities used by 250,000 people.</p><p>This is a significant increase from previous years, and makes us the second-largest contributor to the UN’s 2017 Yemen Appeal and the third-largest humanitarian donor overall. At the same time the UK continues to play a leading role in lobbying for a political solution to the conflict, as well as pressing others in the international community to step up and provide co-ordinated humanitarian support.</p>
