(Iraq Now News)- Two million Yemeni children have been deprived of an education since the Iran-backed Houthi militias staged their coup against legitimate authorities four years ago, estimated Education Minister Abdullah Lemmles.

He warned that Yemen was on the verge of famine, saying 22.2 million people need basic support and 1.8 million children under the age of five and 1.1 mothers and pregnant women suffer from malnutrition.

He made his remarks during a Tunisia-hosted meeting on supporting education and comprehensive stability in the Middle East and North Africa region.
