Mercenary crimes against domestic refugees on West Coast front draws fierce condemnation

The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights has condemned in the strongest terms the deliberate siege against the people of al-Durayhimi district in Hodeidah province.

In a statement, the ministry also denounced the ongoing looting and the Saudis preventing the entry of food and medical supplies to the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the district.

The ministry also decried the deliberate neglect in protecting the displaced civilians in Markudha camp in al-Shujaira village, south of al-Durayhimi.

A recent fire in the camp destroyed 30 houses, which hosted more than 670 displaced families.

The statement noted that this fire is not the first, as the forces of aggression caused similar fires in the homes of the IDPs in the areas of the West Coast before.

The Ministry of Human Rights called on the United Nations, its international organisations and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to take urgent measures in order to provide aid and assistance in order to save the displaced.

The Ministry’s statement called on the United Nations Special Envoy to implement the Stockholm Agreement and take a stand against what displaced persons are exposed to.
