The United Nations called for the removal of mines in Al-Hudaydah Governorate, in western Yemen, against the background of the increasing number of civilian casualties as a result of these mines.

The United Nations Mission to Support the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA) said via Twitter: "The deaths and injuries of a number of civilians, including children and women, after their car collided with an explosive device in Al-Durayhimi represent more tragic losses resulting from the conflict in Hodeidah and throughout Yemen."

She expressed her condolences to the families of the victims and her solidarity with those affected, reminding all parties to the conflict "of their obligation under international humanitarian law to protect civilian lives and their obligations under the Hodeidah agreement to clear mines."

She added, "The United Nations Mission to support the Hodeidah Agreement is ready to assist and facilitate the demining process in Hodeidah."
