A minister in the Yemen`s internationally recognized government has called on the leader of the Houthis group(Ansar Allah) to repent in the month of repentance, blaming him for the fifth consecutive year of killing, displacement and destruction.
Anadulo news agency reported that Minister of Awqaf and Guidance in the Yemeni "legitimate" government Ahmed Attia said: "I call upon Abdulmalik al-Houthi to repent and I tell him in the month of repentance and forgiveness, enough for what you did to the people of Yemen, killing, destroying, starving and diseases,".
He added: "Four years of displacement, ,abuse of Yemeni people, women and children, the bombing and destruction of all components of the country's religious and development, and the disruption of society, is not enough?"
The Yemeni minister described the leader of the Houthis group as being reckless saying: "Because of your ruthlessness, how many mass graves have been erected, how many children are orphaned, how many women have been widowed, how many have been violated, how many money has been stolen?"
The Anadulo news agency said there was no immediate comment from the Houthis group.
Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis had ousted the internationally recognized government late in 2014.
The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi.
Yemen over 4-year war has triggered what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.
