This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction in the city of Sadah, Saada Governorate, Yemen. Using satellite imagery acquired 17 May 2015 and 7 January 2015, UNITAR-UNOSAT identified a total of 1,171 affected structures, approximately 273 structures were destroyed, 271 were severely damaged, and 627 were moderately damaged. Additionally, 35 impact craters were found within the city, the majority of which were located along the runway of Sadah City Airport. A total of 4 medical facilities were identified within 100 meters of damaged and destroyed buildings, and it is possible that these facilities also sustained some damage. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
