In a brutal and unprecedented crime, the Houthi militia executed 12 Yemenis from Al-Hodeidah Governorate, in western Yemen, after they kidnapped them, in the past few days, and placed them in secret prisons.
Local and media sources said that the bodies of a group of abductees were found, executed by the Houthi militia, and their bodies were dumped in the street in Al-Durayhimi district, south of the city of Hodeidah.
Among the victims was a young man named Muhammad Youssef Issa Samah who worked as a qat seller in the Taif area in Al-Durayhimi. The militia kidnapped him and married him in prison, on the pretext that he belonged to the resistance.
Human rights sources in Hodeidah stated that Samah’s family contacted their son on November 15, and he was alive, before his body was found with other kidnappers dumped in the street.
According to the sources, among the abductees who were executed by the Houthi militia, in recent days: Hammoud Argash, Ibrahim Ali Qamari, Abdullah Ali bin Ali Mshasha, Sam Suleiman Youssef, Suleiman Mazjaji, Muhammad Youssef Issa Samah, and Ayman Haidara.
