Alarabiya TV claims the Houthi group imposes restrictions on aid agencies operating in Yemeni regions controlled by the group

DUBAI (Debriefer)--The Saudi-owned Alarabiya TV said on Saturday the Houthi group is continuing to undermine the work of aid agencies in Yemen.

The group has imposed new restrictions on licences of aid agencies to enter and travel in the country, a move which affects the delivery of urgent aid to most vulnerable people, the TV claimed.

This development was included in the weekly report of the UN office in Yemen, it said.

Around 369 incidents have been reported, including delaying or refusing the issuance of travel licences and holding aid workers and convoys at security checkpoints in northern provinces, it said.

The group also demands aid agencies to present lists of aid beneficiaries, vehicle rent contracts and other sensitive information, it said.

The Houthis have not yet responded to the report.
