Yemeni official: Iran Employ Houthi Militia to Threaten Security

Yemen’s Houthi Militias Commit 636 Violations in a Week : Human Rights Reports

The Deputy Speaker of the Yemeni House of Representatives Abdulaziz Jabari confirmed that Iran is using the Houthi militia to threaten the security and stability of the region and the shipping lanes, in Bab al-Mandab strait.

During a meeting here today with the Director of Arab Peninsula Affairs, at the American National Security Council of the American President of the White House, Alison Minor, he explained that the crimes of the Iranian-backed Houthi militia amount to war crimes as they violate all norms and international laws and international humanitarian law.

He drew attention, according to the Yemeni News Agency, that the militia is plundering humanitarian aid, placing its opponents in prisons, detonating their homes, brainwashing children, spreading sectarian and ideological toxins, and developing jihadist ideology by taking advantage of the economic conditions that families of imprisoned and recruited children by the militia, go through, in the areas they control.

Jabbari called on the American administration to continue its pressure on the Iranian regime to stop destabilizing the security and stability of Yemen and the region, alike, stop its support for the Houthi militia and their submission to peace, and leave violence, to pave the way for transformation to a political party through support of state institutions, in the face of extremist groups.
