Civil Commission for Houses Bombing Victims (CCHBV) has accused the Iran-backed Houthi rebels, who have been lately designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S., of destroying and blowing up 25 of civilian homes in Al Hayma village, northeast Taiz city, Yemen’s third-largest city.
In a statement, the CCHBV said the Houthi militia has destroyed over 10 civilian homes in Al Hayma village by artillery shelling and burned 3 more homes this month.
The commission also noted that it has received reports about blowing up civilian homes by Houthi gunmen in the village.
Not only did the militia destroy and blow up homes, but it also abducted 95 civilians, 13 of whom are children, Abductees’ Mothers Association said last Sunday.
Early this month, the Houthi group launched attacks on Al Hayma village after clashes that erupted between the Houthi militia and residents who picked up arms against them.
Reports indicate that the Iran-backed Houthi militia has destroyed and blown up about 816 homes across Yemen since 2014, 200 of which in Taiz province.
