A report released by Rasd Coalition, a Yemeni Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations (YCMHRV), revealed on Tuesday that over 15 thousand civilians have been killed and other 22 thousand wounded since late 2014 when the Iran-allied Houthi insurgents stormed Yemen’s capital Sana’a and staged a coup.
“As many as15420 civilians have been killed and 22619 others wounded,” said YCMHRV. ” So far, 4272 civilians have been abducted and 6352 children recruited.”
YCMHRV also shed light on civilian casualties that fell victim to Houthi-laid mines.
“Landmines planted by Houthi rebels have killed some 1300 civilians, which is a blatant violation of the covenants of International Law and Human Rights Act (HRA),” the report said.
YCMHRV called on the International Community to intervene and play its part in putting an end to these violations.
It also called on the Houthi militia to stop launching Indiscriminate shelling on densely populated areas and to release all abductees being held in Houthi-run prisons.
