Yemen army destroy large amounts of mines in Sa’ada

Alsahwa Net- Yemen army destroyed on Monday large amounts of landmines which were planted by Hotuhi militias in the districts of Kitaf and al-Bukua of Sa’ada province.

Moreover, Yemeni security forces have managed to dismantle landmine networks planted  by Houthi militias in al-Tuhaita district of Hodeida province.

Security sources told Alsahwa Net that these landmines would have killed civilians if they were not removed.

The Houthis always resort to plant landmines before withdrawing, ignoring the high number of casualties.

A Yemeni NGO has unveiled staggering statistics of deaths by Houthi planted landmines. The Yemeni Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations (YCMHRV) said 189 persons have been killed by Houthi planted landmines  in the period from April 2015 to the end of October 2017.

In a seminar on the sideline of the UNHRC's 37th session in Geneva, the YCMHRV said 83 of the 189 victims were killed by anti-vehicle landmines and the rest by anti-personnel landmines . Among the victims were 37 government and pro-government fighters, 31 children and 9 women. The landmines injured 225 persons, military personnel and civilians too.

The YCMHRV'S report indicated that most of the victims are in Yemen's central Taiz city where the armed conflict is still going on and Houthis encircle the city.
