Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi appointed Mohammed al-Maqdishi as minister of defense, state news agency SABA reported on late Wednesday.

Hadi appointed Abdullah Al-Nakhi as new Chief of Staff, the agency said.

The humanitarian situation in Yemen has worsened sharply since 2015, putting millions on the brink of starvation and ravaging the already weak economy.

The United Nations has no up-to-date estimate of the death toll in Yemen war. It said in August 2016 that according to medical centers at least 10,000 people had been killed.
