Landmine explosions alone killed 312 people including 61 children and 18 women. They also reported 81 cases of child soldier recruitments and 42 cases of bombing houses and five cases of US drone attacks on civilians.
The observers gathered testimonies from victims and eyewitnesses on the frontlines
During the process of information gathering the Commission's observers had access to only the prisons run by the legitimate Yemeni government in provinces; Taiz, Marib, Aljawf and Hadhramout.
Houthi militants account for the majority of the human rights abuses and gruesome abuses like landmine planting are the handiwork of the radical theocratic militia exclusively.
