The government calls on the Red Cross to press the Houthis to release the abductees


The Yemeni government on Sunday called on the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to press the Al-Houthi group to release those abducted and forcibly hidden.

This came during the reception of Prime Minister Maeen Abdul Malik in the city of Aden, the interim capital, the new President of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Yemen, Frans Rainstein, and his entourage, according to the state news agency Saba.

In the meeting, the head of the government stressed the "lack of silence of the Committee toward militia crimes in Hodeidah targeting civilians and infrastructure, and is transforming hospitals and residential neighborhoods into military barracks."

Abdul Malik discussed the humanitarian situation in Yemen, measures to protect civilians, solve water problems and provide medicines for chronic diseases, and the government's keenness on the safety of civilians in all regions of Yemen, especially in areas where fighting is raging.
