Up to 14,000 Yemeni students have relocated to the Marib governorate, after being displaced due to the continuous atrocities committed by the Houthi militia, state news agency Saba reported.
The students had to flee their homes in the governorates of Al-Jawf, Al-Baidha, and Yemeni capital Sanaa.
Marib’s Director of Education Office Ali Al-Aubab said the students will need to be enrolled in schools in the governorate to continue their education, but warned of overburdening local authorities.
He appealed for regional and international organizations to offer help as the country enters a new academic year.
