Description : ICRC website, photo gallery "Yemen: Much-needed aid finally reaches city of Taiz" 22 March 2017

"An intense battle for control of Taiz has placed both the city and its people in a state of siege, leaving communities completely cut off from supplies. Water levels are critically low, while food prices are soaring."

ICRC team was able to enter Taiz, bringing desperately-needed food, hygiene items and blankets for over 7,000 people. This was the first delivery of aid since September 2016.
