These records were transferred into the custody of the National Archives and Records Administration in The earliest casualty record contains a date of death of June 8,and the most recent casualty record contains a date of death of May 28, Additionally, there are some changes to the fields between the two files, most notably in the respective date-of-death fields. The date-of-death reported in the Defense Casualty Analysis System DCAS Extract Files is either the actual date-of-death or the date-of-incident, whereas the date-of-death for the Combat Area Casualties Current File is either the actual date-of-death or the date on which the casualty was declared dead.
Three children and eight adults are reported to have been killed and at least 45 other people injured in the past three days in intensifying conflict across Yemen[i]. On Saturday in the southern city of Aden four civilians, including one child, lost their lives and at least 10 people were injured.
With the conflict in Yemen now in its seventh year, hundreds of thousands of people are trapped between conflict and violent riots.
Devastatingly, three innocent children are among the dead. Almost every day we hear of children and families caught up in the fighting, often paying with their lives.
Over the last few months we have seen a ificant increase in fighting coupled with heightened levels of civil unrest, which is exacerbating the humanitarian needs of civilians. Save the Children calls on warring parties to respect International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law and take all adequate measures to protect civilians and civilian structures in times of conflict.
