More than 10,000 families have been displaced from the areas of clashes between government forces and the Houthi group (Ansar Allah) in the north of the country, the executive unit of the camp for displaced camps affiliated with the Yemeni internationally recognized government said on Sunday.

The Executive Unit stated in a statement that the number of displaced persons from Al-Jawf and Nehm reached 10 thousand and 230 families during the period from January 19 to March 12 as result of the recent military escalation in those areas.

The Unit stressed that the presence of these large numbers constitutes a double pressure on the host community and contributes to the spread of epidemics and diseases, especially with fears of the spread of "Coronavirus" that is sweeping the world.

The IDP Unit added that all of these families were displaced to Marib, living in difficult and exceptional circumstances, and lacking the most basic elements of life, such as places of shelter, tents, food and water.

During the past few months, the Nehm district of Sana'a Governorate and Al-Jawf Governorate witnessed violent battles between government forces and the Houthi group that led to the latter's control of these areas and the displacement of families towards the Marib Governorate in the northeast of the country.
