The Forum for Development and Human Rights Dialogue condemned the massacres committed by the Houthi militia in al-Qaza village of Al-Darhmi directorate south of Hodeidah in western Yemen, which killed 7 people and injured dozens of women and children.

The Houthi militia has continued to commit crimes against civilians since the start of the UN truce in Hodeidah at the end of 2018, which has claimed lives and injured thousands of innocent civilians.

The massacre of civilians comes days after an explosive device planted by the Houthis in the Tuhayta – Al- Khokha line affecting 12 civilians, including six dead and six wounded.

The Forum stressed that the Houthi militia continues to commit crimes against humanity, calling for a UN investigation that documents it and provides the perpetrators with international justice.

The Forum reiterates its call for the UN agencies concerned to consider the inclusion of the Houthi militia and its supporters on the lists of terrorism and to prosecute sources it funds to stop its crimes against humanity.
