On this day (20th March) in 2015 the Yemeni crisis took a deadly turn: The al-Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques in Sana'a, the country's largest city, came under quadruple suicide attack during midday prayers. The blasts killed 142 people and wounded more than 351, making it the deadliest terrorist attack in Yemen's history. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL / ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack. According to the United Nations, 16,200 people have been killed in Yemen since 2015 including 10,000 civilians. The humanitarian situation in what was already one of the world’s poorest nations, is now, after Syria, the most critical on the planet, with 20% of Yemenis severely food insecure.
Sana'a, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its distinctive architectural character. The World Heritage Committee has also voiced concern over the damage inflicted to this great Islamic city.
