Reacting to the IPC announcement on the levels of hunger in Yemen, Oxfam’s Yemen Country Director, Muhsin Siddiquey said:
“This is a stark warning sign on the road to catastrophe.
“It’s shocking that in 18 months, tens of thousands of people have been forced into a catastrophic situation. Two thirds of Yemen’s population are now reliant on aid to survive.
“The peace talks in Sweden are a critical opportunity to bring an end to the devastating conflict and the suffering it’s inflicting on the people of Yemen.”
