ABU DHABI, 21st April, 2017 (WAM) -- The immense suffering caused to Yemeni civilians by the Houthi-Saleh rebel militias is already known, but what is tragic is that the atrocities committed by them continue on a daily basis, commented a UAE daily.
The international rights group, Human Rights Watch, has now come out with a startling revelation that Houthi rebels have killed and maimed hundreds of civilians and prevented many of the displaced from returning to their homes.
"This is a serious violation that the international community cannot afford to ignore," said the English language daily, The Gulf Today, in an editorial on Friday.
The paper went on to say, "Landmines are especially dangerous because they continue to pose a threat to civilians long after a conflict ends.
"Steve Goose, director of the Arms Division at Human Rights Watch, HRW, has unambiguously stated that the Houthi-Saleh group has been flouting the landmine ban at the expense of Yemeni civilians. Yemen prohibited anti-personnel mines nearly two decades ago.
"The HRW had documented the Houthi-Saleh militia’s use of anti-personnel mines in Aden, Abyan, Marib, Lahj, and Taizz governorates in 2015 and 2016, as well as their indiscriminate use of anti-vehicle mines.
"The UAE has been making sincere efforts to boost development, improve the humanitarian conditions and restore normal life in the brotherly country of Yemen. The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, on Thursday inaugurated the Bi’ir Ali School in the Shabwah Governorate.
"The ERC had opened an elementary school in Zaghfa, a district of Ash-Shihr coastal town in Hadramaut, southern Yemen, on Tuesday. The school will help students who must travel tens of kilometres to receive education in other areas. Many parents cannot afford transport costs for their children due to the current political and economic crisis.
"Also as part of its plan to restore operations in Aden International Airport, the UAE this week offered a number of buses to transfer passengers to and from aeroplanes, in an attempt to improve the quality of services for travellers. This initiative provides technical equipment that facilitates the transfer of travellers and their bags, as well as providing the airport with modern equipment for transferring luggage.
"What is worrisome is that the rebel militias’ continued harassment of development and relief workers threatens to cause disruption to humanitarian agencies’ operations in Yemen," concluded the Sharjah-based daily.
