Thirty-one CSO demand breakthrough in Houthi siege on Taiz city

As many as 31 Yemeni civil society organizations have joined voices of appeal to the international community to force a breakthrough in the years long Houthi siege against the central Yemen city of Taiz.

In a statement on Sunday, the CSOs called on the UN organizations to force the Houthis to open some outlets for the flow of basic food stuff and medical provision into the city. "For four years, the people of Taiz have been suffering a siege and a day-to-day suffering as a result of the closure of the main roads that link Taiz with other provinces. This producted the worst living conditions a Yemeni city has ever suffered since the beginning of the war," read the statement.

The CSOs called on "the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy Martin Griffiths to use all means of pressure to open the main roads in Taiz and guarantee the safety of movement of people and transportation of food into the city."
