For many months, about 4,200 Eritreans and Ethiopians, Somalis and about 5000, registered under the responsibility of the UNHCR, which today are abandoned in the city of Sana'a. And other tens of thousands of refugees are at the mercy of criminals who are robbing, mistreating, prevented from doing anything, if they go out of the house never return. Disappear into thin air in the city of Sana'a, the refugees are being targeted by armed men who kidnap in order to get him to fight, in a fratricidal war between Yemeni and Saudi military intervention. All countries are evacuating their citizens, but the only ones left to themselves are the asylum seekers refugees. We already have cases of people killed by stray bullets and cluster bombs, many people of the Christian faith made to disappear by armed men, many others who have become victims of torture especially those of Christian faith in Yemeni prisons. The militias vying today the city of Sana'a, are responsible for several crimes against dozens of refugees who have been stripped naked, rob and tortured.
We appeal to the international community to provide a plan to evacuate these refugees and displaced interpolated today in Yemen. Saved the lives of those seeking protection. UNHCR does not have to ski the country abandoning the asylum seekers to their fate, we ask that you do everything possible to transfer the effort to secure all refugees already recognized in need of international protection of the UNHCR office in Sana'a in Yemen.
Grateful for your cooperation and attention, expect immediate action is a race against time.
