The recent United Nations' report said that a total of 200 children in Yemen have been killed in the ongoing civil war since the beginning of 2017. A top United Nations official in Yemen said on Monday that a total of 201 children have been killed including 152 boys and 49 girls, in the Yemeni ongoing civil war since the beginning of 2017. The war started in March 2015, after Saudi-led coalition intervened in the Yemeni conflict by launching a large-scale air campaign to back internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, who invaded the capital Sanaa militarily and seized most of the northern Yemeni provinces, leaving more than 10,000 people killed, mostly civilians, and also displaced more than 3 million.
