Gunmen loyal to Houthi armed group and former president Ali Abdullah Saleh have assaulted on Monday a sit-in protesting mothers against the detention of their sons in prisons of Houthi-Saleh alliance in Yemen’s capital Sana’a. Said Al-Masdaronline reporter.

 

The protesting detainees’ mothers organized a sit-in before the office of UN commission in Sana’a which Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed is visiting.

 

The mothers demanded the imemediate release of their sons who have been detained by forces of Houthi-Saleh for almost two years in Sana’a.

 

The gunmen dispersed the protesting mothers by force, carried out vitriolic attacks on them and threatened to beat them up.

 

This attack came to prevent the protestors demanding UN to release those detained and abducted in prisons of Houthi-Saleh alliance.

 

Hundreds of civilians including journalists, activists and academics have been detained and disappeared by forces of Houthi-Saleh military alliance since their coup against legitimate government in 2104.
