The United Nations said Sunday its agencies are facing persistent restrictions in Yemen, warning of these restraints' consequences on the humanitarian operations in response to the growing needs in the war-torn country.
The UN field teams cannot reach 5.1 million Yemenis in need for aid, living in 75 inaccessible areas across Yemen, the UN country Office for Coordinating the Human Affairs (OCHA) said on Twitter.
The OCHA tailed its tweet, seen by Debriefer, with a map locating the areas inaccessible by its teams.
Yemen has been racked by a 4-year bloody conflict between the internationally-recognized Yemeni government's forces, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who ousted the government in 2014.
The conflict has triggered hard humanitarian conditions and what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
