Riyadh – Saba
Minister of Information Muammar Al-Eryani condemned, in the strongest terms, the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militia’s kidnapping of the female leader Fatima Al-Arouli, an expert in human rights and head of the Yemen office of the Union of Women’s Leaders of the League of Arab States and a member of the Union’s board of directors, from her home and forcibly disappearing her two months ago.
Muammar al-Eryani said in a statement to the Yemeni News Agency (Saba) that the crime of abduction by the Houthi militia of the human rights defender Al–Arouli on the back of a post on her page on "Twitter" in which she criticized the recruitment of children and the conditions of women in the militia-controlled areas, is part of the campaign of repression and abuse which it launched against opponents, journalists, human rights defenders and humanitarian workers.
Al-Eryani pointed out that the number of women kidnapped in the detention centers of the Houthi terrorist militia since the coup - according to human rights organizations - has reached about 1,700 women, including human rights defenders, media professionals and activists. Al-Eryani called on the international community, the United Nations, UN and American envoys, human rights and women's protection organizations, to condemn the kidnapping of Fatima Al-Aroli, and to put pressure on the Houthi militia to immediately release all female detainees and forcibly disappeared women.
