Murad is 22-year-old father of two. Before the war, he used to live in Saada city. He finished school early and got married and worked in a shop. He was forced to flee to Khamer city when the conflict escalated two years ago.
‘’When the war started, there was an air strike that targeted the military compound near our neighborhood. I was in the shop at the time, my wife and children were really scared! Until now, whenever they hear an aircraft, they start screaming, they think it will target them,’’ explains Murad. Credit: Moayed Al Shaibani/Oxfam
