The Yemeni government and rights groups have condemned the international silence over the Houthi terrorist militia’s continuous abuses in the country including a renewed war against the government-held province of Marib which accomodates 60% of Yemen’s IDPs.
Yemen’s government expressed its silence at the “humanitarian organizations’ silence and the use of passive voice when addressing the issue.
In a statement, the country’s foreign ministry said it was “surprised at international humanitarian organizations’ silence and even statements that do not place blame for the war squarely over the shoulders of the perpetrators.”
The ministry called on these organizations to assume their “moral and legal obligation in saving the lives of civilians and IDPs who face the lethal warfare machine of the terrorist Houthi militia.”
Sam Organization for Rights and Liberties also condemned on Sunday the international silence over the Houthi “trial of journalists” and “death sentences” against seven Yemenis the militia accuses of disclosing military secrets” to the Arab Coalition. Sam said the international community has to “assume its legal and moral responsibility toward those crimes.”
