Sufferings of IDPs increase in Aden

 Yemen Post Staff

 

Internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Aden have said that their suffers increase day by day, stressing that they are disregarded by government authorities.
A humanitarian campaign was launched by Yemeni activists on January with the aim of monitoring and documenting crimes and violations committed against the displaced persons of Abyan.
The number of the displaced persons who left their areas in Abyan reached 129,211. They are centred in Aden, Lahj, Al-Baidha and some areas of Shabwah. They escaped clashes between Al-Qaeda militants and the Yemeni army.
Activists said IDPs were living under very difficult conditions, urging all local and international human rights organizations to help them.
"IDPs have had limited access to food, shelter, education or health care" they made it reference.
Local sources of Abyan had said approximately 2500 conflict-displaced persons returned last month to their homes in Abyan, some 480 km south of the capital Sana'a.
They came back amid harsh and terrible humanitarian conditions due to intermittent clashes between the Yemeni army and Al-Qaeda militants.
It was allegedly reported that Al-Qaeda militants welcomed the refugees who came back from their refuge camps, 55 Km far away of Abyan, after they were evacuated to Aden.
In all, there are more than 400,000 IDPs in Yemen, two-thirds of them from another ongoing conflict in the north where Shiite rebels have been battling the army since 2004.
According to a World Bank report, Yemen is the poorest country in the Arab world, with an estimated 35 per cent of the population below the poverty line. It faces widespread food insecurity, widespread water scarcity and depletion of its natural resources including oil.
