[02/03/2018 05:28]

The Yemeni Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations launched its third annual report on human rights situation in Yemen covering the year 2017.

The report was launchedin a seminar on the sidelines of the 37th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

The Coalition's director Mutahar al-Budheiji said in a presentation in the seminar that "the human rights situation in Yemen has entered a very sensitive and complex stage."

He pointed out that the armed conflict, which is entering its fourth year, was characterized by bloodshed, violence and atrocities against civilians.

"The Coalition documented the report's facts during the period January 1 to December 31, 2017; the violations which,across 20 provinces, led to the killing of 2260 people and injuring of 2780 others," he said.

"In the year 2017, Houthi and Saleh militias killed 1324 persons and injured 2295 others. The Houthimilitia alone killed 206 persons and wounded 227 others in December."

He pointed out that the Coalition investigated dozens of incidents of enforced disappearance, kidnapping and arbitrary detention, and the accompanying acts of torture, which led to the death of a number of the detainees.

He called on the UN Security Council to pressure on the Houthimilitia to implement the Council's resolutions on Yemen, in particular resolution 2216, to abide by the principles of international humanitarian law and human rights conventions, and immediately stop indiscriminate attacks against civilians, planting of all kinds of landmines and to cease its assassination crimes.

He also called for the protection of children and women and the release of all detainees held arbitrarily and those the militia forced into disappearance.
