The Houthi militia planted mines and explosive devices around United Nations food storages in Hodeidah, a local minister in Yemen said on Sunday.
The chairman of Yemen’s High Relief Committee Abdel-Raqib Fatah claimed that planting landmines near humanitarian aid was a violation that no other group in history has ever committed.
Fatah, who is also Minister of Local Administration, asked the UN and other humanitarian organizations to condemn this criminal act, which aims to deprive Yemen’s population of relief assistance.
The minister urged the international community to take serious measures to stop all terror acts committed by the militia against humanitarian and relief work in Hodeidah and other “occupied” provinces.
The silence of the international community in the face of the atrocities committed by the Houthis was unacceptable, the chairman added.
