This came in a tweet via Twitter published by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

The UN office said: “In Ramadan this year, millions of people in Yemen do not have enough food,” calling on donors to donate for Yemenis without further details.

On Sunday, the International Committee of the Red Cross reported that Yemen’s needs are “enormous beyond imagination”, in a message to Yemenis on the occasion of Ramadan.

And last week, the International Organization for Migration of the United Nations announced that more than 25.5 million Yemenis are now living below the poverty line due to the repercussions of the war that has been going on for more than seven years.

And the Iranian-backed Houthis, who have controlled several governorates, including the capital, Sanaa, since September 2014.
