Report: Thousands of human rights violations by Houthis, Shia, military
The report cast light on violations such as kidnapping, forced displacement, torture, looting and destroying facilities.
The report indicated 531 murders and 497 houses destroyed by Houthis in Sa’ada. It also claimed 124 murders were committed by Houthis in Hajja.
Dhaif Allah Al-Shami, a member of the political council of Houthis, said the report is “full of lies and fabrication.”
“This report was issued as a response to our campaign against American intervention in Yemen,” he said. “The report aims to destroy our reputation after many Yemeni started supporting us.”
Hadi Wardan, a councilman in Sharas district in Hajja, said the report is accurate.
“All violations in the report are documented, and the real number of violations is higher than mentioned,” Wardan said.
