Under Houthi control, Sana’a bids farewell to the worst year it saw


The latest year under the Houthis, 2020, was the worst year the people of Sana’a lived. As the radical group continued their heavy-handed rule, crackdowns, extortion of Itawat (illegal taxes), suspension salaries, spread of pandemics to name just a few.

 “The year 2020 was the most difficult for the people of Sana’a,” a citizen who identified himself only as M.N told al-Sharq al-Awsat daily. He said the Houthi abuses “spared no one: The young, the old, the elderly, the women, the politicians, the MPs, the businessmen, the bakers, the public and private companies, the educational, religious, environmental and agricultural sectors.”

The militia’s transfer of fuel trade to their warlords-owned black market exacerbated the economic crisis resembled in the soar of foodstuff price, such that people could not put the staple food items on the table. 

The estimated 200 thousand beggars in Sana’a from the previous years under Houthi rule especially rose in number in the year 2020.

A lawyer who identified himself as W.Q said, “ The Yemenis speak up louder today that they want the Houthis be designated a terrorist group and treated as such.” He said, “What the Houthi militia did to the people of Sana’a over the past months drives home the point that it is a terrorist group no less so than Daesh, Al-Qaeda and Asar Alshariah.”

“The continued silence of the international community against what is happening to the people in Sana’a and other Yemeni cities is going to make suffering last and embolden the militia to go far.”
