Houthis restrict NGOs’ humanitarian work

Alsahwa Net- Yemeni humanitarian groups said that the Houthis destroyed during the past few days hundreds of tons of aids that were confiscated by Houthis officials over the past period.

These seized aids were kept in secret stores until they have rotted.

Sources quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily Newspaper, said that the Houthis officials in Sana’a, Hajja, Dhamar, Raima and Taiz have destroyed hundreds of tons of aids after they expired.

Those aids were supposed to be distributed to needy households.

This coincides with ongoing seizure of 325 aid containers at the Houthis-held Hodeida port.

The detained containers include medicines to chronic diseases and food aids.

Executive Director of the World Food Program (WFP), David Beasley, said recently that a “countdown to catastrophe” was now underway, detailing that misery on a “whole new level” is only months away.”

Beasley added that the decline in value of the local currency was making provisions even more expensive.

Noting that WFP had pulled Yemen back from the brink of famine before, he said that the threat is once again “knocking on the door”.

The Houthis claimed that the destroyed and detained aids were inedible.

The sources said that the Houthis’ director of the Supreme Council of Humanitarian Affairs informed humanitarian organizations to only use certain car rental services affiliated to his groups.

The government has warned frequently about Houthis’ constant hindrance to humanitarian groups by the Houthis and restrictions of movement.
