The National Commission to Investigate Alleged Violations to Human Rights (NCIAVHR) said it has documented as many as 3411 human rights violations committed in Yemen during 2022.

In a press release, NCIAVHR said the violations include targeting civilians, casualties as a result of mines and explosive devices, arrests, forced disappearance, targeting archaeological and religious objects, attacks on medical personnel, health facilities and facilities, destruction of private and public property, and recruitment of underage teens

NCIAVHR noted that the violations of human rights continued despite the UN-led truce, which lasted for six months before it expired on October 2.

It added that the provinces of Taiz and Hodeidah were the most ones to be affected where many civilians fell victim to shelling and shooting, not to mention the seven-year siege imposed by the Houthis on the city of Taiz, the third-largest city in Yemen.

NCIAVHR called on all the warring parties to comply with international humanitarian law and international human rights law in protecting civilians in all Yemeni regions.

The committee also called for an end to arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances, torture, and looting of property, urging the international community to take a firm stance against human rights violators.
