GENEVA-SABA
Yemeni activist Mutahar al-Budheiji said in a seminar in Geneva on Tuesday that an organization he leads has reported more than 2000 civilian casualties incurred in different parts of Yemen from January 1 to June 30 of this year.

Addressing a seminar on the sideline of the 39th session of the UN Human Rights Council,al-Budheijithe CEO of the Yemeni Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations (YCMHRV)said 1224 civilians were reported killed and 1220 others were injured by indiscriminate shelling, sniping attacks, assassinations, tortures in jail and landmines

He said that "among the killed are 232 children, 129 women and 69 elderly people." The central Yemen city of Taiz suffered the biggest number of casualties (367) followed by Hodeidah (226) and Ibb (74).

"The Houthi militia is the prime perpetrator of these abuse acts," he said

The landmines, exclusively used by Houthis in the ongoing war, have killed 182of the civilians including 41 children and 24 women and injured 138 other civilians including 19 children and 15 women.

The tortures were reported to take place in 199 secret jails supervised by the Iran affiliated militiain Sana'a, Beidha, Ibb, Saadah, Hajjah, Hodeidah, and Dhamar.
