(OSRSG-CAAC) – Expressing alarm at dramatic increases in the scale and impact of grave violations against children in Yemen, Leila Zerrougui today called on all parties to the conflict to respect their obligations under international law to protect civilians – including children – from harm. “Children are paying an unacceptable price, and the ever mounting death toll tragically underscores the need for urgent action to protect them and other civilians,” the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Children and Armed Conflict said.
