Saudi air attacks shut down universities

Students have been shut out of Yemen’s classrooms since the Saudi-led air attacks started on 26 March. Those attacks have also killed hundreds of schoolchildren and damaged schools and universities, writes Faisal Darem for Al-Fanar Media.

“We decided to suspend classes in all public and private universities to ensure the safety of students and professors until further notice,” said Ali Qasim, the undersecretary of the Higher Education and Scientific Research Ministry.

As a result, the nation’s five million students are idle. “The continuation of the educational process is impossible due to the bombardment and the displacement of large numbers of students and professors,” said Qasim.
