Today, Wednesday, the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen announced the destruction of two booby-trapped boats belonging to the Houthi militia and thwarting an imminent attack.
The coalition confirmed that the Houthi militias continue to threaten shipping and trade lines in Bab al-Mandab and the southern Red Sea, in violation of the Stockholm Agreement by launching hostilities from Hodeidah Governorate.
In a related context, the coalition announced the implementation of 19 operations targeting Houthi mechanisms and elements in Al-Abdiyyah, Marib, during the past 24 hours.
He added that 12 military vehicles of the Houthi militia were destroyed in Abdiya, and more than 108 of its members were killed, stressing his commitment to “supporting the Yemeni national army and protecting civilians.”
On Tuesday, the coalition announced that about 300 Houthi militants had been killed in the last 24 hours, as a result of aerial bombardment in the Abdiya area, south of Ma’rib Governorate.
In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency, the coalition said: “We targeted nine military vehicles of the Houthi militia in Abdiya, and their losses exceeded 134 members.”
The coalition confirmed, on Tuesday, that it had carried out 43 targeting of Houthi mechanisms and elements in the Abdiya district, south of Marib, during the past 24 hours.
On Monday, dozens of women from the Abdiya district and human rights activists organized a protest to denounce the siege imposed by the Houthi militia on the district, south of Ma’rib governorate, 22 days ago.
During the sit-in in front of the headquarters of the international humanitarian organizations in the city of Ma’rib, the protesters denounced the ongoing Houthi siege on Abdiya and the negligent international stance towards the siege.
The protesters also called on the United Nations to get out of the cycle of neglect and inaction and to put more pressure on the terrorist militias to end this siege, stop their simultaneous attacks on the district, and run humanitarian convoys to rescue the besieged and evacuate the wounded.
The protesters handed a copy of their statement to representatives of the UN organizations, and stressed the need for urgent intervention to save civilians in the Abdiya district, including women, children, the elderly and sick from genocide, and to lift the siege on them and to build an air bridge to deliver medicines and food that were completely lacking to help them resist death from starvation and disease.
Classification of the Houthis as a terrorist group
The women in the vigil called on the United Nations and the international community to classify the Houthi group as a terrorist group, and its leaders are war criminals who must be prosecuted in fairness to the victims and to ensure that they do not go unpunished.
Human rights sources indicated that the Houthi militia has deprived 5,300 families, or a total of 35,000 civilians, of access to food, water and medicine for more than twenty days in the Abdiya district.
