#YEMEN The ministry stated yesterday on the occasion of International Children’s Day that the warplanes of the US-Saudi led-coalition killed 2,643 children and injured 4,205, noting that this is an evidence of the criminality and malice of the enemy.

It added that the suffocating siege on #Yemen imposed by the US-Saudi aggression coalition kills hundreds of thousands of children and millions of them waiting for the same fate.

The number of children under five years affected by malnutrition are
nearly 2 million, including 400 thousand in critical condition, and 12 thousand passed away, the ministry pointed out.

Today on #WorldChildrensDay I am also thinking about the children in impoverished conditions in #Palestine. Since 2000, over 1,800 children have been killed across the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
.@DCIsecretariat (international NGO) report that each year approximately 500-700 Palestinian children, some as young as 12 years, are detained and prosecuted in the Israeli military court system.
Large numbers of children across Palestine face major difficulties in accessing education as a direct result of Israeli occupation policies. #Education is a basic right and a necessity to build a better society, but remains elusive for many Palestinian children.
