Houthis attack a village in al-Baydha and launch a large-scale kidnapping campaign


Militants of the Al-Houthi group launched a large-scale campaign on civilians in the Al-Dahaki area of al-Baydha province on Thursday.

A local source of Al-Masdar Online reported that the Houthis abducted more than a dozen civilians after they attacked the area and fired live bullets indiscriminately at homes and properties.

The attack on the village had also caused intimidation of children and women, while Houthi militants were still stationed in the area until the moment, sieging a number of houses in preparation for their detonation.

In the context, the popular resistance elements in Hazmieh at Al-Sawma’ah Directorate seized a shipment of weapons and explosives on their way to Houthis, from the provinces of Shabwah and Abyan.

A leading source in Hazmieh explained that the shipment of weapons contained ammunition, explosives, rockets and tank shells, which were on a medium transport truck and another car, and according to the documents, it is coming from the Directorate of Markha.

He added that the resistance elements also seized another car, which was coming from the Lawder directorate in Abyan province, and carrying 20 boxes of live bullets, on the way to Houthis.

The source said that a cell of nine members of the Shabwah and al-Bayda governorates, transporting the cargo to the Houthis, had been arrested and that investigations were continuing to uncover the other elements of the cell involved in the arms smuggling.
