Motion text

That this House deplores the bombing of the Kitaf hospital in the Saada province of Yemen on 27 March 2019 which resulted in the death of eight people, five of whom were children; notes that the number of civilians killed in airstrikes has now reached over 17,500 since the four-year bombing campaign began, 1,283 of which were children; considers that the only way of improving life for the people in Yemen is an immediate ceasefire and the resumption of humanitarian aid; demands that there must not be any further bombings of children or hospitals; and expresses deep concern that as the Yemen conflict enters into its fourth year, children continue to suffer from malnutrition and are not safe in Yemen hospitals.
