Yemen' senior-most relief official said the rebel Saleh-Houthi militias' shelling attacks on health facilities are "terrorist behaviors."
In a statement to Saba on Wednesday, the chairman of the Supreme Relief Committee Abdurraqeeb Fatah said: "The health sector in Yemen is almost collapsed because of the coup militias' shelling on health facilities"
Fatah, who is also minister of local administration, said "these behaviors are terrorist and violate the humanitarian laws and principles. They lead to multiplying the suffering of the people."
Fatah called on the international community to stand up firmly to that and force the coup militias to keep their hands off relief aid and humanitarian aid organizations' business.
Fatah condemned the militias' trading with anti-cholera medications in the black market in Hodeidah, Hajjah, Ibb and Dhamar provinces "while the cholera patients lack these medicines."
The sale of donor-granted cholera medications usher in a humanitarian disaster, Fatah warned. "The continued silence of the UN organizations towards these acts emboldens the militias to go ahead with their behaviors that endanger the lives of Yemeni people."
Fatah called on the Humanitarian Coordinator Jamie Mcgoldrickand the UN organizations, including the WHO and UNICEF, to keep an eye on the distribution of cholera medicines and the integrity of the personnel involved indistributing them, within the militia-controlled areas.
Fatah said: "The criminal militiaswere not satisfied with just sieging provinces, controlling their seaports and airports, destroying all means of living there, but theywent to use totally immoral and inhumane methods to multiplypeople's suffering, e.g. by looting drugs and medical aid."
"These practices, however, won't turn off the government from doing the utmost it can with GCC brotherly countries and the likeminded organizations to offer humanitarian aid. Out of the government's sense of responsibility toward its citizens."
