Coup Militias’ Mines Kill 700 Civilians In Yemen


RIYADH, 28th May, 2017 — The coup militias of Al-Houthi and the ousted Ali Abdullah Saleh have found a way to plant minefields in the cities and governorates from which they withdrew, following the strikes of the government forces and the Arab Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen, as they sought to harm the largest number of unarmed Yemeni citizens.

The Arab Federation for Human Rights has revealed in a report that Houthis have planted more than 500,000 anti-personnel mines in parts of Yemen, killing more than 700 people. Additionally, engineers trained by the Arab Coalition have succeeded in dismantling 40,000 mines, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

For its part, the Yemeni Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations has revealed that women and children are the largest victims of mines, with 924 wounded and 572 others permanently disabled by the explosion of mines planted by the militias.

Meanwhile, the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid continues implementation of its plans to assist the Yemeni people by ending this crisis. This includes its USD$10 million project to support the rehabilitation centers for the injured, as well as artificial limb transplants carried out by the International Committee of the Red Cross, ICRC.
