Alsahwa Net- The Houthis carried out on Saturday large-scale arbitrary of citizens in Al-Zaher district of Al-Baida governorate.
Local sources said that the Houthis militants arrested scores of citizens from their homes and workplaces and took them to private prisons.
The sources said that these new arbitrary arrests came on the background of accusations raised by citizens against the Houthis on the murder of two young men; Ali Mohamed Baleed and Akram Mohamed Al-Jarw.
The sources said that the murder crime is intended to seed hatred among the people of the district.
The Houthis often exercise arbitrary arrests in areas of their control to suppress their potential dissidents or swap victims with their military prisoners held by the government forces, according to the United Nations reports.
Several local and foreign human rights organizations documented brutal mistreatment and torture of detainees in the Houthis-run prisons.
