Houthis raid mosques, abduct preachers

Published: Updated:

Yemeni sources revealed that the Houthi militias have raided dozens of mosques in several provinces in Yemen. They have waged a large wave of arrests and abductions of preachers and imams and assigned Houthi preachers to replace them.

The Yemeni SABA news agency quoted eye-witnesses saying that worshipers left the mosques where Houthi preachers took the platforms.

Houthi militias have vandalized many mosques few days ago; they wrote and drew their slogans on the walls of the mosques and threatened the guards that they would destroy the mosques if they dare to erase the slogans.

In Sanaa, witnesses confirmed that the Houthi militias kidnapped on Friday 3 worshipers during the Friday prayers, as they were getting out of the mosque in Qadisiyah.

A report was issued on Friday on the abuses committed by the militias in the southwest of Sanaa, pointing out that the militias closed 20 schools there.
