Displaced Yemenis Call On Houthis To Cease Attacking Them With Missiles

Dozens of internally displaced people in Yemen’s Marib governorate called on the Houthi group to stop attacking them with missiles and booby-trapped planes.

In a sit-in, they strongly denounced the group’s brutal and steady crimes towards them and demanded prosecution in native and world courts for their crimes in Marib, Taiz, and different governorates.

The Yemenis displaced from the Sweida camp, called on the United Nations, the Workplace of the Excessive Commissioner for Human Rights, and other worldwide humanitarian organizations to discharge their ethical obligations toward the displaced civilians in Marib Governorate and pressurize the group to cease the killing of innocent people.

The United Nations reported that 13,000 Yemenis were displaced only in January due to ongoing battles in the war-hit country.

Meanwhile, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) announced plans to reduce the volume of food aid provided to 11 million Yemenis due to a lack of funding.

“Funding shortages are threatening to cut lifesaving support for millions of people. Soon, 11m people will have to rely on reduced food rations and 4.6m could lose access to clean water. Further cuts are expected unless funding is urgently received,” OCHA said in a tweet.
