VIDEO: Houthi militias targeting residential areas in Hodeidah


Video footage obtained has shown Houthi militias bombing residential areas with tanks, the UAE’s state news agency WAM reported on Tuesday.

Arab Coalition forces have said that Iranian-backed Houthi militias in Yemen have directly targeted civilian populations in the Tehama region, north-west of Hodeidah.

Coalition forces asserted that the purposeful targeting of civilians and residential areas by the Houthi militias is in direct violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and have therefore broken International Humanitarian Law relative to the protection of civilians in times of war.

The Coalition has called on the international community to put pressure on the Houthis to stop their violent and illegal acts against the Yemeni people.
