The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center landmine clearance project (MASAM) in Yemen extracted in 3 weeks of October 77 antipersonnel mines, 3,116 anti-vehicle mines, 1,817 explosive devices, and 146 unexploded ordnance, totaling 5,156 mines.
This brings the total extracted mines, planted by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias, since the beginning of the project to 11,785.
The mines are typically planted by Houthis in areas with schools and homes and are disguised in different shapes and colors.
They have become a means for Houthis to target a large number of children, women and the elderly, resulting in death, serious injuries or amputations.
