Sources in Sanaa disclosed to the Al-Masdar online that Houthis sold a large amount of chlorine provided as assistance from international organizations in the amount of 60 million Yemeni riyals.

A large amount of chlorine was loaded aboard two large trucks in front of the gate of the Rural Water Authority in Sanaa, which was sold to a merchant, according to Al-Masdar online eyewitnesses.

According to the source, four al-Houthi employees agreed with a merchant to complete the sale and purchase deal, which was carried out directly by the two locomotives loaded with tons of chlorine, which are stored in the warehouses of the Rural Water Authority in central Sana'a.

According to the source, the authorities of the al-Houthi group took the matter very discreetly, and after the surveillance cameras of the rural water Authority revealed to other officials and began to talk about the deal, Houthis authorities announced that they had arrested the four accused and referred them to criminal investigation and To the prosecution, amid tight security measures, while al-Houthi group warned all staff of the authority to leak any information so that this scandal would not add new assertions and indications of the al-Houthi trade in aid after the first scandal of the  group authorities in Sana'a revealed by the World Food Program.

In December last year, the World Food Program (WFP) charged Al-Houthi with acquiring aid from organizations and the international community.
