The ordeal: Journalists' more than 1100 days in Houthi-Saleh jails

It may not be an exaggeration to say that the ordeal of Yemeni journalists and journalism at the hands of the Houthi-Saleh militias is the severest in modern history, given the number of abused journalists and length and type of abuse and atrocities. 

It has been more than 1100 days since the militias launched their overthrow of the state in September 2014 and began rounding up journalists to jails. Eighteen of them are still in the radical militias jails where they endure the most brutal forms of torture and no visits are allowed to see them or assess their physical and emotional health.

The confirmed news emerge from prisons that journalists, as well as other activists, are subjected to brutal torture that caused a number of them to lose body abilities, motor skills and one or more of the five senses.

Torture techniques include electric shocks, sleep deprivation, mock execution, hanging upside down by feet until consciousness is lost and severe beating, to name just a few.   

A daily vengeance is exercised against the peaceful oppositionists in the prisons of the National Security and Political Security apparatuses and torturers seek to update their techniques of inflicting pain.

This brutal elimination included the closure of premises of all information media save the Iran affiliate and their own media.
