government forces in yemen backed by a saudi iraqi military coalition have entered the airport in who data are trying to retake it from who think rebels because it would be a key way of resupplying military forces today to also holes host a major seaport and there are fears the fighting could disrupt the flow of much needed aid to millions in security council has been meeting to discuss the fighting the region raises there coal for the ports of hadid and salif to be kept open and operating safely given the continuing reask to the humanitarian situation they regenerates it's their call for the full implementation of security council resolutions including resolution twenty two sixteen. and urged all size to uphold their obligations under international humanitarian law sami hyundai from
international interest in online news magazine says and taking back the airport issues they significant for the sat him iraqi military coalition and yemen we have to remember credit has been a very key city in terms of supply and who has really exactly what they need in order to be able to sustain this war of attrition that they've been conducting in yemen there who think gamble has always been that as long as they can get inside our lungs they can stay where they then international pressure will force saudi arabia to the table to discuss negotiations that use the airport and the seaport to receive the aid to impose taxes on the aid that has resulted in prices seeing more than one hundred percent and to them which is a great hardship on her data so the work in terms of taking the airport and taking the port are absolutely fundamental for the coalition forces it's because if this is the battle that will cut off the right flank hoofy if who didn't is taken there will be a civilian weakening the who this position and it may well force these into
a fight for survival that will mean that they take negotiations with peace much more seriously of course the problem is that the who things have have gathered most of their forces into the data as a sign of just how important it is we didn't see this in the other cities that the coalition were trying to take who these are desperate to make sure they don't lose it so it's a fierce battle for the airport it will be a fierce battle for the port more than fifteen hundred migrants who try to cross from africa to spain over the weekend it's the largest single influx of migrants to that area and four years it comes days after more than six hundred migrants arrived in the spanish city of the landsea after that ship was turned away from italy and malta hall has more from an area on spain's southeastern coast. in the last four days spain's marine rescue services plucked more than fifteen hundred migrants and refugees from the seas of the western mediterranean and brought them ashore to ports like here in el maria and points further south with this latest influx that
effectively means that the number of new my going to rivals has more than doubled compared to the same time last year in the last four days more than a hundred fishing vessels and row boats and even child rubber dinghies have been detected as they cross from northern morocco from here and now maria that's a distance of about one hundred miles or one hundred sixty kilometers because of these new arrivals the national police and immigration services say they are overwhelmed they say that there is simply no space to house and give these migrants the services and help that they may need and so in practice what is happening is that once the migrants and refugees have been processed the gates of the port are being thrown open and they're free to continue their journey into spain or deeper into europe meanwhile the german chancellor angela merkel is facing a growing immigration crisis of her own and she's been given
a two week ultimatum by one of her coalition partners to tighten asylum rules or lose support that could bring down merkel's government and force new elections. that are more refugees in the world today than ever before the latest u.n. refugee agency report finds more than sixty eight and a half million people are displaced worldwide around the hand of a closer look at the numbers. every two seconds a person is forced from their home over a day that's forty four and a half thousand people over a year more than sixty million this is the un figure for newly displaced people in two thousand and seventeen the un's refugee agency says it's part of a worrying upward trend a number that's risen every year for the last five years and is fueled by war violence and persecution crises like those in the democratic republic of congo war in south sudan the hundreds of thousands of muslim or head injury flooding into
bangladesh from neighboring me and most of them a children fifty three percent of the world's displaced and often unaccompanied or separated from their families one in every one hundred ten people is a refugee internally displaced or seeking asylum that adds up to more than sixty eight and a half million people to put that in perspective if the world's refugees for a single nation that roughly equal the population of the united kingdom and in the time i've been talking at least thirty four people more than half of them children have been forced from their homes over on day as the high commissioner for refugees at the united nations there is a sense of urgency but the response is continue to be too fragmented and to isolate this is a global phenomenon that requires international so be very thin cooperation on
a global scale and this is what these raise the rising figures and the world's response to these political positions are not right. refugees are fleeing violence war persecution we have an obligation to help them and they're not even effective you can see easily you just reported on a few close avenues on the one side they open on another we need to look at the root causes we need to address the reasons why these people leave beilenson or we need to help the countries where they are in majority let's not forget that the sixty eight million refugees and displaced eighty five percent are not the rich countries that are in poor middle income developing countries and then we need to maintain asylum systems that are effective that receive those in need of protection of refuge and give other options other solutions for those that move for
