Yemen - Conflict
  • On 24 November, Stephen O'Brien, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs released a statement on Houthis and popular committees of blocking deliveries of aid to the country's third city of Taiz where 200 000 civilians are living under siege since several months. The UN USG is concerned about reports that some of the aid has been diverted away from the people it was intended for.
  • Fighting and airstrikes regained intensity in the front lines in Taiz, Lahj, Marib governorates and despite ongoing diplomatic activity in Oman, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, official dates for the resumption of talks between parties involved in the conflict have not been announced yet.
  • In November, availability of essential food commodities and fuel continued to deteriorate in several governorates of Yemen, mainly in those where conflicts and airstrikes intensified (Taiz, Sa'ada, Al Bayda, Al Jawf and Marib) as well as among those affected by the Cyclone Chapala (Soqatra, Hadramout and Shabwah). Prices of basic food items also rose markedly.
