Footage filmed on Sunday shows 12-year old Fatima Qoba weighing just ten kilogrammes due to severe malnutrition, in a #malnutrition clinic in the Yemeni city of Hajjah.

Qoba is one of hundreds of thousands of Yemeni children who have been driven to the brink of #famine due to Saudi Arabia's war on the country.

Her sister, also called Fatima, expressed concern for her younger sister, noting that "we live under a tree, l don't know if we can take care of her or if she will be malnourished again because of the hard conditions we're suffering from. We don't have anything to feed her with."

Head of the Hajjah malnutrition clinic, Makiah al-Aslami, explained that the girl was "skin and bones due to the hard life of her family," who she said are "displaced persons from Al-Sha'ab area who are not provided with shelter, food or medications."

Aslami stressed that she expects more malnutrition cases among children, with more pregnant women suffering from acute malnutrition.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its allies launched a war on #Yemen in 2015. The war has killed thousands of people and brought Yemen close to the brink of a countrywide famine.
