GENEVA: The Yemeni Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations held a symposium at the UN, where it argued that human rights violations in Yemen would deepen if Houthi terrorists continue to commit atrocities.
The symposium was held within the framework of the 42nd session of the Human Rights Council focusing on violations in Yemen.
Murad Al-Gharati, head of Tamkeen Development Foundation, said that human rights violations in Yemen would not stop as long as the Iran-backed Houthi terrorist militia controls the Yemeni capital Sanaa, and other Yemeni governorates, while having access to Yemeni state weapons.
“The Houthi militia did not recognize or investigate any of the violations committed against civilians, which confirms its deliberate targeting of civilians. It also did not hand over maps of mines, which renders them more difficult to clear out, and harms efforts to prevent the fall of new victims, or treat individuals who were already victims to mines,” he said.
Al-Gharati said that the silence of the international community regarding Houthi violations and the refusal to abide by international resolutions encouraged it to continue committing crimes, besieging cities and intercepting relief materials to use them in its war against innocent Yemenis, which meant “killing them twice, by stealing relief dedicated to the hungry and needy, and by using the revenues generated from selling it for buying bullets.”
He added that the continued violations of Houthis against women will lead to divisions in society.
