Houthis intimidate clothing stores again

Alsahwa Net- The Houthis launched in the past few days a new intimidation campaign targeting clothing stores in the capital Sana’a.

The Houthis militants say that targeted stores sell western fashion -women’s wear which violates instructions of the Houthis leaders on women's dress, according to their narratives.

Sources quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily Newspaper said that the campaign targeted clothing souqs and stores of the old Sana’a city, Sa’wan, Hayel street and Jamal street of the capital Sana’a.

The Houthis inspection militants confiscated the on-sale items, set them on fire and fined owners of the stores.

Owners of clothing stores complained intimidation by the Houthis militants and said that such ISIS-like acts restrict their businesses and threaten their shut down, the sources said.

This time, the Houthis militants intimidated specifically women’s underwear as well as some men’s wear that the Houthis view as copying to western communities according to the narrative of their leaders.

Local and international reports documented over the past five years thousands of violations and intimidations committed by the Houthis.

Reported violations and intimidations included storming houses, murder, looting, abduction, illegal detention, extortion of businesses, imposing illegal taxes and forcible indoctrination of the society.
