Civilians’ death and forcibly disappearance continue in Sana’a

Alsahwa Net- A newly report by a local non-governmental human rights organization said on Thursday that murder and forcibly disappearance remains high among civilians of the Houthi-held Sana’a governorate.

This was detailed by Shuhood Human Rights Organization that released a report of human rights violations committed by the Houthis militants during the first six months of 2019.

“The human rights record of Sana’a governorate conveys a bloody image whereby brutal acts against the civilians and infringement of their rights by the Houthis is increasing,” said Fayz Al-Darf, chief of Shuhood Organization during a press conference held in Mareb last Thursday. 

He explained that some of the violations mount to “war crimes and crimes against humanity”.

He added that documented violations are part of a four-year crackdown that continues until present.

He indicated that the report of his organization has highlighted violations that normally go under-reported in the Houthis-held areas.

The report documented over than 2,700 violations. These violations include premediated murder, injury, kidnapping, torture, forcible disappearance and intimidation of women and children, according to the report.

19 civilians were killed by the Houthis in Sana’a governorate alone during the first six months of this year, according to the report. 

266 citizens were abducted from home or their workplace across districts of Sana’a governorate during the same period, the report said.

The organization’s reporting team was able to verify military recruitment of 162 children by the Houthis’ militants during the first half of this year, according to the report.

It indicated that most child soldiers returned dead or wounded.
