On Tuesday, Yemeni militants launched a sharp attack on the United Nations after handing over 20 cars to the Iranian Houthi militia for demining all the mines they planted, while the Houthis planted more than 1 million mines in the Yemeni provinces.
On Tuesday, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) announced the delivery of 20 4*4 vehicles to Al-Houthi militia in the province of Hodeidah to help deminers.
The United Nations has chosen the Yemen Mine Action Center (YEMAC), in order to hand over the Houthis, which may be used for planting additional mines in Hodeidah and other Yemeni provinces.
The UN move has angered Yemenis, and they showed it in social networking sites, saying it is an offense to Yemeni people and their suffering Yemeni human rights activist Riad Al-Dubai told the press that: “The Houthi militia, which planted mines all over Yemen, is receiving reward vehicles from the United Nations.”
Al-Dabbi pointed out that the so-called director of the Houthi Mine Action Program, who has become a partner of the United Nations program in Yemen, is the Huthi leader, “Abdul Rahman Al-Moayyed” and appeared on more than one occasion as a companion of militia leader Muhammad Ali al-Houthi. Over the past months, Houthi militias have planted thousands of mines in residential neighborhoods of Hodeidah to curb the advance of the coalition forces.
Huthi mines have killed and wounded dozens of civilians and denied farmers access to their farms on the Tihama plains. The Al-Houthi militia uses camouflaged mines in the form of rocks and trees in order to kill the max of innocent victims possible. In the last two days, torrential rains have revealed one of the terrorist fields of these mines in Al-Baqa district in Sa’ada
According to official statistics, the mines of the Houthi militia have taken the lives of more than 10 thousand civilians dead and permanently disabled since the coup against power more than four years ago.
The number of mines planted by the Iranian-backed terrorist
groups are the largest since World War II.
