"Mines exacerbate the crisis in Yemen,"

"Huthirebellernas mines have killed and injured hundreds of civilians and prevented emergency aid from reaching the vulnerable, warns Human rights watch (HRW). Mines have been used both in battle against the yemeni law and against the international ban on anti-personnel mines."

"the Mines deployed in the farmland, villages, wells and roads has prevented humanitarian aid from reaching forward, made the fields and the wells unusable and made it impossible for the civilians to return to their homes, writes HRW. The organisation also has evidence that Huthirebeller placed antifordonsminor and modified them to detonate a person's weight, well camouflaged explosive devices to look like stones or trees sticks make."

"The humanitarian crisis in Yemen is among the worst in the modern era and HRW believe that the mines will contribute to further aggravate it."

"the HRW now wants to Huthiledarna immediately stop using the weapons and investigate and punish the officers responsible for the used. At the same time, should the Security council impose targeted sanctions against all individuals responsible for the infringements."
