We do not hold accurate numbers of Yemeni civilians who have been killed in airstrikes. We deeply regret the loss of civilian lives in any conflict and continue to urge the Yemeni parties to implement a sustainable cessation of hostilities and work towards reaching a peace agreement for the sake of the people of Yemen.
