Explosive Remnants of War Kill, Maim Civilians in Marib After Guns Go Quiet

Overall levels of violence in the Yemeni civil war have decreased since a nationwide truce went into effect in April 2022 and remain low despite the truce’s formal expiration in October of that year. Unfortunately, his lull in violence has not extended to civilian victims of landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO).

A November 2022 UN OCHA analysis noted that the number of civilians injured and killed by explosive remnants of war increased by 20% since the truce began, compared to the previous six- month period.

The increased mobility that accompanied the cessation in hostilities led to deadly consequences as civilians returned to homes and land littered with landmines and UXO.
