546 houses detonated and looted by Houthi militia in Hajjah
The Iran-backed Houthi militia continues to carry out its criminal operations against unarmed civilians, bombing and looting homes and places of worship in different parts of Yemen.
During the inauguration ceremony for Civil Authority for Victims of Houses Bombing, the head of the authority Umm al-Ezz said that the preliminary statistics of houses that were blown up and looted by the Houthi militia in Hajjah province, mostly in Hajour, amounted to about 546 houses.
She added that “the establishment of the authority is a response to the suffering of victims and human rights activists to reveal the horrific crime of bombing houses by Houthis militia and its physical, social and psychological damages.
“The Authority also seeks to get compensation for the victims, and to prosecute the perpetrators of these crimes and bring them to local and international courts.”
“Houthi militia’s bombing of houses is a crime against humanity that is prohibited by all international laws and legislations,” she said.
She pointed out that the local and international human rights organizations don’t pay attention to such Houthi crimes against civilians.
The Chairman of Protection Organization Ali al-Tam said that standing in solidarity with the victims whose homes were detonated by Houthi militia and demanding their rights is to get the perpetrator punished and achieve justice even after a while.
He said that maintaining silence sends a message to the violators that they will go unpunished and encourages them to keep on their abuses against the civilians.
