The Saudi regime launched an illegal aggression on Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to force back the country's former government to power. The brutal aggression has so far claimed the lives of nearly 13,000 Yemenis mostly civilians including women and children.

 
The Saudi military aggression has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, mosques and factories.
