The Yemeni internationally recognized legitimate government held the international community fully responsible for the Houthi bombing of the women's section of the central prison in Taiz on Sunday, killing six inmates and wounding another.
Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalek said in a telephone conversation with the governor of Taiz, Nabil Shamsan, that this hideous terrorist crime and its predecessor's bombing of the Safer oil pumping station and trying to bomb Saudi lands and continue with war crimes against civilians provides new and compelling evidence to the international community on the criminal nature of this group and its insistence to deepen the causes of the war that sparked it since its coup against the legitimate authority, and to expand the circle of victims to reach all Yemenis and everywhere.
He pointed out that "the continued international disregard for these brutal crimes encourages the Houthi militias to pursue their sabotage and destructive project, setting out the wall with all binding international community decisions and attempts to end the suffering of the Yemenis and end the war sparked by this rebel group."
The Aden-based Yemeni news agency "Saba" quoted a statement to the Presidency of the House of Representatives attributing the causes of the crime to the international complacency in implementing the resolutions issued by the Security Council and the UN resolutions and turning a blind eye to previous crimes against civilians, which encouraged the Houthis to continue their criminal acts and with all madness in the service Iranian destructive project.
The statement described the bombing of the war crime and the systematic and complete terrorist act.
The Ministry of Human Rights, in a press release, called on the United Nations, the international community, and the International Red Cross to take a serious stand to condemn the Houthi crimes, the latest of which was the targeting of the central prison in Taiz Governorate.
The Ministry called on the international community and the Security Council to stop the violations and heinous crimes against civilians by the Houthis as war crimes that violate all international customs, traditions, covenants and customs, demanding that the perpetrators be brought to justice.
Minister of Information in the internationally recognized legitimate government, Moammar Al-Eryani, called on the international community, the United Nations and its office in Yemen represented by Mrs. Lise Grande and Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths to condemn this heinous crime that comes in light of international calls for calm and a cease-fire.
Al-Eryani said that the international community should pressure the Houthi group to stop its crimes against civilians and end the siege imposed on the city five years ago.
