[04/07/2018 08:17]

In cooperation with King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center, the Ministry of Human Rights organized a seminar under the slogan "How to Save and Protect Women and Children in the Yemeni Crisis"at the Geneva Press Club on Wednesday.

Addressing the seminar, Human Rights MinisterMohammed Askar said the Houthi militia"have killed 814 women and injured 4179 in the period fromSeptember 2014 until May 2018."

The rebels violations against women "included murder, injury, humiliation, sexual violence, detention, psychological torture, forced displacement and other abuses," he said.

He played a short clip on Reehaam al-Badra human rights female activist and member of the National Commission of Enquiry as one of the women victims of the rebels. Al-Badrwas shot dead by a Houthi sniper in the besieged city of Taiz in early February.

Presenting an account of the violations against children he said that they "fall into six categories of serious crimes; murder, mutilation, exposure to danger including by their conscription into the military, abduction, deprivation of food aid and sexual violence. "

He said that the Iran-backed rebels have been plantinganti-personnel landmines, despite the international prohibition of this practice.

He said the rebels have designed landmines in different sizes and in camouflaged shapesthat mimic many natural objects to kill anyone. And sure enough those landmines "have killed and injured hundreds of civilians, most of them women and children."
