Houthis ban 36 NGOs from operating apart from their oversight

The Houthis have decided to prevent 36 international, regional, and local relief organizations from working in areas under their control apart from the rebel militia's direct oversight.

The rebels' self-proclaimed health ministry issued a circular to all health offices in the provinces and districts under their control to disallow the listed organizations to operate on their own, on the grounds that such organizations, by the nature of their work, shall only operate under the health ministry's oversight.

Yemeni officials accuse the militia of pressing NGOs to work for the radical group and to connive in the militia's seizing and manipulating of aid that should go to the destitute people without any hinders or interventions.

The chief of Yemen's Supreme Relief Aid Committee, Abdurraqeeb Fatah condemned the Houthi move in a press statement on Monday. He called on the Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen and the international community to press the militants to get their hands off the relief organizations' business. .He called on the Coordinator to report to the UN Security Council the militia's longstanding abuses of aid and interferences that lead to the deprivation of the intended recipients, Yemen's impoverished people.  "The rebel militia is fully responsible for the worsening humanitarian conditions in the provinces under their control," Fatah said.

Meanwhile Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab Coalition countries announced $1.5 billion in massive humanitarian aid plan for Yemen. In a press conference in Riyadh on Monday, the Coalition pledged to run multiple daily flights carrying aid to Yemen which the Iran-backed Shiit Islamists pushed to the brink of famine by three years of insurgency.
