[20/05/2018 07:30]

ADEN-SABA
Information Minister Muammar al-Eryanihas condemned the Iranian-backed Houthirebels' looting of humanitarian and relief aid donated to the people in the territories under their control.

"The Yemeni government has learnt that Houthis are practicing a "widespread and systematic looting of humanitarian aid provided to Yemen by the UN relief agencies and King Salman Humanitarian Relief Center," al-Eryanitold Saba.

He said that "the gathered information confirms that the Houthimilitia haveforced the chieftains of neighborhoods to adopt new lists of relief aid beneficiaries, families of rebel fighters killed or wounded as they fight in the militia's ranks.

The sources said that rebel militia has also set up a number of associations, ostensibly to undertake the distribution of humanitarian aid but are in effect only an umbrella to control aid and sell them to raise funds.

Al-Eryani pointed previous differences between the Houthis and international aid agencies over the rebels manipulation such associations - the Houthis to control and sell aid shipments, disputes that resulted in cancelling agreements of coordination with those associations to distribute aid.

Al-Eryanicalled for the adoption of clear mechanisms to deliver aid and implement relief programs for the millions of Yemeni beneficiaries affected by the Houthi coup and years long armed rebellion against the government.
