The Houthis fell in a "trap" by stolen image. Journalist embarrassed them during her presenting it to the United Nations

In a strange incident, Houthi, at the UN Human Rights Council, presented a picture of one of the children crying on the ruins of his house, on the grounds that he was a victim of an Arab coalition flighters.

However, journalist and human rights activist Hamedan al-Allei, at the Geneva--Council, revealed the lie of the Houthis by clarifying a lot of facts about the photograph.

Activists have circulated a video showing al- Allei ‘sintervention at a seminar of a human rights activist in the tragedy of a Yemeni child who was allegedly bombed by the Arab coalition.

Al- Allei disclosed in his intervention the name of the victim, the owner of the photograph and the location of the incident, and the child victim of the Houthis.

UNICEF was awarded a prize to the Yemeni photographer Nabil al-Azwari, who took the photograph of the child, and later used it on her pages and accounts.

In a special statement to the Arab post, Yemeni journalist Nabil al- Azwari, who works as a photojournalist, said he took the photograph in January 2015 of the child Hamoud Rajeh al-Zubairi, who Houthis blew up his home in a Shera’a area in the district of Arhab, east of the capital Sana'a, before the military operations led by Saudi Arabia at the top  of the Arab coalition.

Al- Azwari said the Houthis arrested him for a week in Sanaa, where he was tortured and insulted, to force him to give up the photograph he took of the Yemeni child, but he refused, and they stole it and attributed it to them as the child is a victim of Saudi Arabia, not the Houthis!

He noted that the activist   Hamedan al- Allei have used it to reveal the lie of the Houthis, at the International Meeting of the UN Human Rights Commission, which was exposing the Houthis ' violations against the Yemeni people, who had been suffering for years because of the inhumane conditions they were living because of the ongoing war Between them and the Arab coalition.

The military campaign, which has been under way for more than three years and has been accompanied by a naval and air blockade by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and backed by the United States, has not yet been able to wipe out the Houthi rebels backed by Iran, but has made the Yemeni people It suffers from extreme poverty and has left the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world.

While the world is oblivious to Yemen, the war continues to destroy the bodies and souls of the besieged Yemeni people. Some 9 million Yemeni families depend on the salaries of the family members they receive from their jobs in the public sector.

The central bank of Yemen was the main element in the distribution of their salaries, but the Saudis moved it in September 2016, from Sana'a to the coastal city of Aden in the south, where the Yemeni government allied with Saudi Arabia is stationed.
