the UN peacekeeping team for Yemen, which is headed by retired Dutch general Patrick Cammaert, came on Saturday to the southern port city of Aden.
the country's official government traveled Cammaert and his group to the north and arrived on the Sunday to the country's capital of Sanaa, where the country's so-called huthirebellerna has its stronghold.
the UN group's mission is to monitor the ceasefire around the port city of Hodeidah as the parties agreed during the peace talks earlier in december in Rimbo in Uppland. To Hodeidah leave the team after the stop in Sanaa.
It is to the strategic Hodeidah on the Red sea, as a large part of the food, fuel and other supplies, as Yemen imports are shipped. But the fighting around the city has in recent times been among the fiercest in the war.
Therefore it has been difficult to get supplies. And a lot of it that could have been unloaded in the Hodeidahs port is stuck there and not able to be distributed to the needy. It is a main reason why the humanitarian crisis has become so deep.
In more than three months of emergency assistance in the form of food that would be sufficient for 3.5 million people remained unused in a warehouse in Hodeidah, writes Mark Lowcock, head of the UN organization for humanitarian assistance.
the yemenis, a third of the population, suffer serious food shortages. A quarter of a million are on the brink of starvation.
According to Save the Children, as many as 85,000 children be starving to death under the now four-year-long war.
