Houthis continue to plunder private lands and establish housing units for the militia's wealthy members

The new urban expansion, in light of the war, created new city landmarks in the capital, Sana'a. What is known as the "New Sana'a Directorate" comes as a culmination of the plans and activities of the Houthi putschists to create a sectarian belt surrounding the capital, through a rush to control the lands and establish housing units for the wealthy members of the militia. At a time when simple people are trying to save their property from the group's real estate encroachment.


Residents in the south of the capital (Sana'a) are trying to quickly sell their lands and real estate before the hands of the influential Houthis reach them, and although most of them are working to reduce the price of their property in order to speed up the sale, the buyers fear of the greed of the Houthi leaders, with several obstacles, It prevents the completion of buying and selling activities in those areas in the required manner.

Among those obstacles, according to Asharq Al-Awsat sources, is that the Houthi militia's looting practices during the past years have raised the owners' fears of seizing their lands and properties for which they spent their lives, or obtained them through inheritance from their fathers, and those same practices prevent anyone thinking of buying; for fear of losing his wealth.

In addition, the militias, and through the Awqaf Authority and the Judicial Authority affiliated to it, which they established as two entities parallel to state institutions, are working to deduct 20 percent of the money paid for the purchase of real estate from the seller, and the corresponding amount from the buyer in what is known as the “right of one-fifth.” .

And the “right of one-fifth” is the deduction of what is equal to 20 percent of the money and wealth of Yemenis. The militias passed a law in its name in mid-2020, claiming that it is the exclusive privileges of their dynasty.

These obstacles were expressed by Samir Salam, who is looking for a buyer for the land he owned after more than 30 years of work and savings, and he started building a house on it a few months before the coup.

For sale:

To improve his family's living conditions, and then fear that the Houthi putschists would seize it.

At first, the difficult living conditions prompted Samir, who is a pseudonym, to think of selling the land, but his children persuaded him to keep it for the sake of the vicissitudes of life in the future, and to save them the trouble and the cost of rents. However, he returned years later and decided to sell it seriously, for fear of controlling it. It was looted by the influential militias.

On the other hand, his neighbor Ahmed Muqbel, who is also a pseudonym, says that he was ready to buy the land at the appropriate price for it, before the money he collected during nearly 20 years of work in Saudi Arabia wasted. However, he fears, like his neighbor Samir, one of the influential militias, and prefers to preserve his savings as cash without risk.
