12 Powerful Photos That Show The Utter Devastation In Yemen

Fighting between Houthi rebels and forces loyal to the government of President Hadi in Yemen continued unabated on Monday, while fighter jets from a coalition led by Saudi Arabia pounded rebel targets across the country.

The deadly airstrikes have devastated areas of Yemen, leveling buildings and contributing to an increasingly dire humanitarian situation in the country. Fighting in the south has left the port city of Aden cut off from aid and suffering from dwindling supplies of food and water, reports Reuters. Meanwhile in the capital, Sanaa, the Red Cross has not been able to get much needed supplies to those in need.

The violent clashes and 12 days of airstrikes have killed over 500 people, and left behind scenes of utter destruction such as the ones below.
