Houthis embed themselves in villages, use civilians human shields in Al-Tohaita

Local sources have confirmed that the Houthi militia has prevented the villagers of the district of Al-Tohaita, south of the province of Hodeidah to escape their areas, where Houthi-army clashes are expected, and are therefore keeping these villagers as human shields.

 

The sources expect battles to erupt soon between Houthi rebels and the advancing army forces who want to liberate the district as part of the government's plan to liberate the whole Hodeidah Hodeidah and restore its vital seaport from the grip of the Houthi rebels.

Local residents reported that the Houthi militia elements stationed their military vehicles in densely populated villages and insisted that the people remain in their villages to serve as human shields against flight strikes.

The sources said that a number of humanitarian organizations have indicated their willingness to undertake the evacuation of civilians from their villages in in order to secure their lives, but these efforts were met with a categorical rejection by elements of the Houthi rebels.
