Yemeni minster of Human Rights calls the world community to save civilians against Houthi crimes

Yemen’s Minister of Human Rights dr. Mohammed Askar has asked the world community and the United Nations to achieve their responsibilities in protecting civilians in Al-Dhalea Province and a number of villages in Yemen against capital and grave crimes being committed by the Iran-backed Houthi militias using different kinds of weapons, ballistic missiles and explosives.

“According to reliable field statistics and information, as many as 27 civilians were killed, 73 wounded, 9000 persons and 361 families displaced, and 541 homes partially or totally damaged in addition to five health facilities, nine schools, and 145 farms destroyed and 16 government and 34 houses controlled by the Houthi militias in Al-Dhalea province,” Askar said told a press conference held in the country’s provisional capital of Aden.

He underscored the importance of the international institutions in charge of human rights and world peace and security undertaking their role to coerce the Houthis to stop attacking the civilians of Al-Dhalea area and allow local and international organizations access to deliver the necessary humanitarian assistance to the needy without any hindrance to evade further aggravating the situation in the area to catastrophic levels.
