Yemeni Minister of Human Rights Ezzedine Al Asbahi accused Friday Yemeni Ansarullah movement and the General People's Congress group of committing war crimes against humanity in Taiz city.

In a press conference at Yemeni Embassy in Kuwait, the minister said the two movements were shelling neighborhoods and the surrounding of Taiz city, killing at least 10 civilians and injuring 30 others, some are seriously wounded.

Al-Asbahi also accused the groups of deliberately disrupting the current Yemeni peace talks, hosted in Kuwait, and opening more than one front on the battlefield targeting national resistance and military forces.

The Yemeni minister reiterated the government stance of self-restraint in respect to ceasefire agreement signed last April 10th. Al-Asbahi warned the groups following such strategy would divide the country and its social fabric.

Meanwhile, the minister called on the UN, Arab League and the GCC to take serious steps condemning Taiz city attacks and force the culprits to take responsibility for their action.

The minister confirmed Kuwaiti-hosted Yemeni talks brought an historic opportunity to all Yemenis, "but what took place today in Taiz supports the belief that Ansarullah and the General People's Congress reject peace.
