Statements by the Spokesperson

Last night several civilians, including children, were killed at a hospital in Katif. We extend our condolences to the families of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to the injured. As the war in Yemen enters its fifth year, the country continues to be plagued by violence, hunger and disease.
The EU expects a rapid implementation of the Stockholm agreement and supports the UN led efforts towards a political solution of this protracted conflict. It is crucial that all parties to the conflict respect international humanitarian law and ensure the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure.
