days to leave the house you due to the security situation taking place, being able to testimony commute and go to the office to be able to help the people and then the blackouts that come in and out all day long, definitely is a challenge for all humanitarians. i think also. the blockade is making the situation worse because the crisis is getting bigger and bigger every day where a country like yemen where 80% of its basic needs come in ported, 100% of the rice is imported and 80% of the flour so you can imagine by this blockade taking place at the borders at the moment whether by hour or by sea the amount which catastrophe that yemen i guess heading to. other than that,
2:12 pm
unfortunately -- >> let me ask you this. >> yes. >> these airstrikes have been brought about because the houthi rebels have taken over sanna the saudi coalition is trying to stop the houthi rebels from that position. which would you prefer to see the airstrikes stop and your life return to some sense of normalcy or for the houthis to be driven out. would you like to see the bombing end more than anything else? >> well, to be honest with you there is a lot of voices who are talking and speaking about the parties of conflict, who's in favor and who's against. for me for sure as a humanitarian worker, there are casualties from the civilians and every day they are getting more and more. today there of seven airstrikes and a new movement is taking place. two weeks ago there was three
