Nearly six months after the Yemeni government and Shiite rebels agreed on a cease-fire deal, there are still thousands of residents in the troubled northern provinces fleeing to internally displaced camps.

Some local analysts said the fragile truce deal allowed the rebels to regain their strength after they completely tightened their grip on Saada province and slowly advanced in areas surrounding the capital Sanaa.

According to camp supervisors, the first influx of internally displaced persons (IDPs) have not returned home since the cease- fire while thousands more are still rushing in to the IDP camps due to the recently short-live sporadic clashes in the north.

Officials warned that the continued influx of more IDPs would cause a huge humanitarian catastrophe among displaced families with children who have been starving of serious food shortage.
