Running out of food & water, thousands of besieged Yemenis issue distress call

Civilians in Yemen's eastern Marib governorate have issued distress calls to the country's government, the Arab Coalition and the international community to break the siege that the terrorist Houthi militia had recently imposed on them saying they are beginning to run out of food and water, activists from the afflicted area have said.

 

 Activists Fares Alnemri and Ahmed Almuradi who were fortunately outside the region when Houthis besieged it nine days ago said more than 37 thousand civilians comprising IDPs and the host tribe of Bani Abd, are under tight siege by the Houthi militia in Al-Abdiya after recent advances by the Houthi terrorists in Marib's southern regions.

"The siege is a complete circle, and our fellow villagers are issuing distress calls to the government in Marib's provincial capital through phone communications to do something to break the siege because the terrorists have cut all humanitarian and commercial supplies to the mountainous region,"   Almuradi said. He said the people are still using the food and goods that happened to be stocked up by traders of the area in their shops and whatever foodstuff people have at home from before the war. "But soon, very soon, they are going to face hunger as many families and relatives tell us by phone," he said.

Rayed Al-Thabeti the Assistant Secretary General of the Popular Authority for Supporting the Defense of Marib said in an interview with Balqees TV on Wednesday that Al-Abdiya is now a humanitarian issue that all international media should focus on given that the Houthis have "cut all humanitarian and medical supplies" to the thousands of helpless civilians there.

He severely attacked the government for not acting to rescue the civilians as Houthis squash them tribe after tribe.

The former chief of the Yemeni army's Morale Orientation Department Mohsen Khasroof said in an interview with Balqees TV on Wednesday that military aid to the tribesmen is needed like weapons to be dropped from the sky to help them break the siege on their region.
