RIYADH-- The Yemeni government has officially accused Houthi militias of shelling the fishing port and Al-Thawrah hospital in the city of Hodeida, killing 14 people and wounding more than 30 others, mostly civilians.
According to official Yemeni News Agency, the Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights said in a statement: "This crime constitutes a serious and blatant violation of international humanitarian law, Geneva Conventions' Four Treaties and their Additional Protocols, and is considered as a war crime against humanity."
The Ministry assured that this crime was deliberate because it coincided with the UN Security Council's meeting and just hours before the briefing of the UN envoy in a false pretense of the Council and an attempt to mix the papers by Houthi militias.
The ministry called on the international community, especially the High Commission for Human Rights, to act urgently to protect civilians and to condemn these crimes and to exert pressure on Houthi militias to stop their crimes and all forms of systematic violations and crimes against innocent civilians.
It noted that it constantly monitors and documents such violations and submits them to relevant domestic and international commissions to detect offenders and to reclaim the rights of victims.
