也门暴力严重影响到平民 Yemeni Civilians Caught in Violence

无国界医生组织说,虽然也门交战双方在两个月前就达成了停火,但塔伊兹市的暴力冲突还在继续对平民造成严重的影响。

无国界医生组织星期二发表声明说,塔伊兹市人口密集区持续发生激烈的战斗,那里每天都有炮击、空袭、炸弹爆炸、地雷爆炸和狙击枪声。

声明说,交战各方没有人做出任何努力来防止平民伤亡。

无国界医生组织呼吁也门冲突各方,采取更多的措施保护平民,降低冲突的激烈程度,为人道救援不受限制进入塔伊兹提供便利。

根据联合国提供的最新数字,自从沙特阿拉伯开始轰炸胡塞抵抗力量以来的15个月里,有3500多人被打死,将近6300人受伤。

联合国儿童基金会3月29日公布的报告提供的数字是,在头一年的战斗中,儿童死亡人数为900人,受伤的数字是1300人。

Civilians continue to be severely affected by violence in the Yemeni city of Taiz, despite the cease-fire reached two months ago between warring parties, according to the medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders.

Some of the fiercest fighting has taken place in densely populated parts of Taiz, including daily shelling, airstrikes, bomb blasts, land mine explosions and sniper fire, an MSF statement said Tuesday.

None of the warring parties appears to be trying to prevent casualties among civilians, the statement said.

MSF called for all parties in Yemen’s conflict to take greater measures to protect civilians, reduce the intense level of conflict and facilitate unrestricted humanitarian access in Taiz.

According to the latest figures released by the U.N. human rights office, more than 3,500 people have been killed and nearly 6,300 wounded in Yemen since the beginning of Saudi Arabia’s bombing campaign against Houthi rebels about 15 months ago.

A report issued by the U.N. Children's Fund on March 29 put the number of children killed at 900 and the injured at 1,300 during the first year of fighting.
