One hundred fifteen families in the central Yemen city of Taiz had their breadwinners killed in the conflict in December 2017, the Coalition for Humanitarian Relief (CHR) organization said in a periodical report issued early January 2018.
The CHR said "around 121 others who used to earn the livelihoods of their families were injured beyond earning capacity in the same month."
From the civilian casualty perspective during the month the CHR said "eight children and three women were killed, and that seven children and four women sustained injuries, some of them critical ones, all of them as a result of the semi-daily bombardment of the city by the Houthi rebels.
The report said that 1895 families were displaced from six rural districts as the Shiit Islamists escalated their attacks and sought to occupy new villages.
