Today, Tuesday, the International Organization for Migration of the United Nations announced that more than 74,000 Yemenis have been displaced since the beginning of this year 2021, as a result of the ongoing conflict in the country.

The organization said in a report that, "from January 1, 2021 until October 9, the IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix monitored the displacement of 12,413 families, with a total number of 74,487 people."

The report stated that "during the period between the third and ninth of October, the displacement of 504 families was monitored, with a number of 3,024 members."

He explained that "the largest number of displaced people - who fled their homes - were monitored in the governorates of Ma'rib (central), Shabwa (southeast) and al-Bayda (central)."

Since the beginning of last February, the Houthis have intensified their attacks in Marib to control it, as it is the most important stronghold of the government and the headquarters of the Ministry of Defense, in addition to its enjoyment of oil and gas wealth, as well as the Ma'rib gas station, which - before the war - supplied most of the governorates with electricity.

Yemen has been witnessing a war for nearly 7 years, which has claimed more than 233,000 lives, and 80% of the population - numbering about 30 million people - has become dependent on support and aid, in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the United Nations.
