The Yemeni Alliance for Monitoring Human Rights Violations has confirmed that it monitored 455 torture cases committed by Houthi militia in the period between September 2014 and December 2018, most of them in Sana'a's prisons.

The Head of German-Yemeni Forum for Rights and Freedom Khaled al-Afif pointed to torture ideologies adopted by Houthi militia for terrifying and subjecting Yemeni society rejecting its sectarian ideology.

He confirmed that the militia willingly terrified civilians in its prisons and then released them in terrible cases casting them in public roads or hospitals.
