The Iran-backed Houthi rebel militia has displaced hundreds of families from Al-Khaniq and Majzar camps, located in Nihm district, east of the capital Sana’a, to several other displacement camps in Marib province.

Sana’a Relief Coalition, stated that more than 1,350 families were forced to flee again from Al-Khaniq camp to several other displacement camps in the city of Marib, after their camp was bombed by the Houthi militia.

In the same context, approximately 500 families have been displaced again from Majzar villages and camps, located in the northeast of Ma’rib Governorate, after they were targeted by the artillery shelling of the Houthi militia.

The coalition pointed out that the displacement camps lack the most basic requirements of relief and urgent housing materials. It also appealed to local and international organizations to quickly provide urgent assistance.
