More than 40 humanitarian groups on Thursday called for an extension to the ceasefire in war-torn Yemen, calling it a “critical moment” for the country.
Ahead of the truce’s current expiration date on Sunday, 44 aid agencies issued a joint statement to “remind all parties to the conflict that the future of the people of Yemen is in their hands”.
Yemen’s war between Iran-backed Huthi rebels and a Saudi-led coalition has left hundreds of thousands dead and created what the United Nations calls the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
“Now is a critical moment for the people of Yemen,” said the groups, which include Oxfam, Save the Children and the Norwegian Refugee Council.
