The Saudi-led coalition’s aggression destroyed 1,600 schools over the past year according to Save The Children, UNICEF and UN organizations Every school targeted with two raids almost every week.
Although the schools reopened in November 2015, but 1,600 remain closed due to insecurity, infrastructural damages and some are used as shelters for displaced people, mainly in al-Jawf, Sa’ada and Taiz governorates.
Arwa, eight years old girl, was living in a war zone and now she lives with her family in a school in Sana’a. Arwa told Save the children ” I miss my school, friends, house. I don’t want to live in a classroom in a school. School should be for education not to live in but the war forced us to leave our house and live here. I am sure this war will end soon and I will be able to go back to home and school.”
