Alsahwa Net-An American activist of the Golden Institute of International strategy in New York, Adelle Nazarian, said that the mandate of the Houthis female Security apparatus known as Zainabiyat is largely similar to what is happening in Iran.
In an online symposium organized by the Yemeni Coalition of Independent Women, Nazarian said that Iran has changed Yemen into a place for replicating its regime.
She affirmed that Iran is the main supporter to the Houthis and the first party to be blamed to the war in Yemen.
She said the media does not report acts of violations in the Houthis-run prisons where the media outlets are being denied following up such issues.
Speakers of the symposium talked about fate of the female detainees in the Houthis-run prisons.
Women of Hashemite family connection are the main members of the Houthis female security apparatus, according to the UN Security Council (UNSC) report.
Responsibilities of the female apparatus include searching women and houses, indoctrinating women and maintaining order in female prisons, the report said.
The Panel of experts on Yemen that wrote the UNSC report, said that it “has documented violations committed by female service, including the “arbitrary arrest and detention of women, looting, sexual assault, beatings, torture and facilitating rape in secret detention centers.”
