The National Commission for Enquiry into human rights abuse claims in the country’s armed conflict visited an artificial limb center in Taiz on Saturday to gather evidence from amputees pursuing healthcare and workers at the center.

The Commission’s delegation collected a list of (400) people following health care in the center as a result of limb loss in the ongoing war that worst affected Yemen’s central province of Taiz.

It was agreed that the center shall update the enquiry commission with any new casualties coming forward to the center.

The team found that most the casualties occur from explosive shells fired and anti-personnel landmines planted by the Houthi militia which is besieging the city since the beginning of the five year old war.
