"Twenty-six million of the civilian population are at risk," said the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) delegation in Sanaa, Cedric Schweizer, whilst discussing the humanitarian crisis in Yemen during an interview with RT in Moscow, Tuesday. Schweizer stated that a lack of medicine, fuel and water were three of the major issues the organisation faced when attempting to alleviate the ongoing crisis. Discussing ways to solve these issues, the ICRC representative said that "political decisions" needed to be taken by all parties involved in the conflict to allow tankers to provide fuel, that could in turn provide power for both hospitals and water pumping stations. Schweizer also noted that civilian casualties resulting from the conflict were a serious area of concern for the ICRC. "We have seen, several times, a lot of civilian casualties and it's something we have to address" he said, suggesting that "we need to have a dialogue with all the parties of this conflict to ensure they respect the civilian population."
