Houthi militias carried out raids on homes belonging to ministers of the legitimate government of Yemen on Wednesday in Sanaa.
According to local sources in Sanaa, Houthi gunmen stormed and looted the homes of Yemen’s Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Major General Hussein Arab.
Sources also pointed out that the militias have recently intensified their targeting and looting of homes of politicians who are opposed to them, especially in the capital Sanaa.
The home of the Minister of Information of Yemen was also stormed by Houthis after his guard was kidnapped. The doors of his home were allegedly destroyed and their belongings tampered with.
Subject to prosecution
Yemeni Human Rights Minister Mohammed Askar said that such violations are being documented and monitored and that the perpetrators will be punished and will be subject to prosecution.
He referred to a number of violations committed by the Houthis against the private property of Yemeni citizens, whether by destruction, bombing, confiscation or incursion.
He explained that the houses and private facilities that have been attacked by the Houthis and Saleh have amounted to more than 30,000, since the start of the coup, including more than 500 houses that were booby-trapped and detonated.
