Since the onset of the Saudi-led military campaign in March 2015, the conflict in Yemen has resulted in more than 5,700 documented deaths and 27,000 people injured as of November 2015.

This report focuses on the impact of the conflict on religious minorities, and looks into the situation of the little-known Muhamasheen community. It provides an overview of the background context, including the continuing conflict and rising sectarianism, and makes recommendations for effective protection of Yemen’s minorities.
