The Houthi militia’s escalating war in Marib has forcibly displaced 1180 fugitive families in the eastern Yemen province and the bordering areas of Sana’a in nine days, relevant sources said.
The Executive Unit for IDPs in Marib said 89% of these families were settled in Sorwah area in Marib and the rest were Marib’s Raghwan district and the bordering Sana’a district of Bani Dhabyan had to leave their camps under the increasing threats.
The Unit confirmed that Houthis had directly shelled IDP camps in Sorwah forcing people to displacement again. The Unit said the IDP camps are suffering severe shortage of relief aid and shelter materials amidst the escalating war.
Meanwhile, two children were critically injured by a Houthi-laid landmine in Najd Almajmaa area, south of Marib on Wednesday. The two children were shepherding their livestock, according to al-Rashad Press website.
The Houthis, a Shiit lookalike of ISIS, have been waging non-stopping pyrrhic attempts to capture Marib for years. The attempts intensified as of the beginning of 2020, and the latest has been going on since the US ended their terrorist designation upon UN demands.
