Displaced women in camps on Yemen’s western coast on Tuesday accused the government, loyal to the Saudi-led coalition, of turning the camps into prostitution and sex trafficking headquarters, according to Yemen News Portal.
Activists circulated on social media videos of several girls talking about the administration of the IDP camps on the west coast distributing sexual objects to displaced women and forcing them to commit adultery under duress.

One victim noted that the director of the administration in Al-Khokha , Najib al-Saadi, was forcibly pressuring displaced women to have sex.
Earlier this week, a massive fire broke out in Al-Jisha camp in Al-Khokha district, which is under the control of Tariq Saleh’s forces, which are accused of committing rape crimes, in an attempt to hide evidence and force the displaced people to leave the city, while activists described it as a revenge operation.
