Aden, Jumada II 29, 1439, March 17, 2018, SPA -- Yemeni Minister of Local Administration, who is Chairman of the Higher Relief Committee Abdul Raqib Fateh, called on the international community to practice all means of pressure to lift the siege on all the governorates under the control of the Iranian-backed Houthi militias.
Fateh condemned the armed siege imposed by the Houthi militias on the Directorate of Al-Shaar, east of Ibb Governorate several days ago, the displacement of civilians from their homes, the abduction being committed against people in a number of villages of the Directorate and preventing the movement in the villages of the Directorate and neighboring districts.
Fateh also said in a statement that the siege imposed by the Houthi militias on a number of governorates is a war crime added to the series of crimes being committed daily by militias against humanity in Yemen, according to Yemen's official News Agency.
