Alsahwa Net- The Houthis militia committed around 20,000 human rights violations against civilians of Amran governorate during the past four years, a new government human rights report said.
General Director of the Human Rights Office in Amran, Emran Ibrahim, said that the reported 20,000 abuses included death, abduction, forcible disappearance, forcible migration and detonation of opponents’ houses.
The report documented 1,1130 death cases and about 3,000 child abuses in Amran, according to Ibrahim.
He said that the report documented also over 1,500 arbitrary detentions and forcible disappearance.
About 380 arbitrary detainees were vulnerable to torture while in confinement, Ibrahim indicated.
The Human Rights Office in Amran appealed to the United Nations (UN) and its affiliated agencies in Yemen to quickly materialize its responsibility towards stopping abuses against civilians and children of Amran.
The office said that civilians of Amran are vulnerable to forcible military recruitment amid lack of children’s access to health care and education.
