SANA’A (Anadolu) – Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has called on Yemen’s warring sides to extend a UN-brokered cease-fire and provide protection to civilians in the country amid the Saudi-led war. “It is now just over a month since the expiry of a UN-mediated truce in Yemen that started on 2 April, and we are gravely concerned for the safety and security of civilians,” OHCHR spokesman Jeremy Laurance told reporters. He said the OHCHR documented “loss of life and injuries from attacks and shelling on civilian areas.” The spokesman called on Yemen’s warring parties “to facilitate the access of humanitarian relief organizations to populations in need and to facilitate civilian access to humanitarian and life-saving services.”
