Yemen: escalation of the Houthi militias in Hodeidah with new weapons, vehicles and fighters Meanwhile the burning of a Houthis' explosive warehouse in Sana'a causes the death of 15 children and the wounding of 100 people


A prominent international rights group says Yemen’s Al Houthi militants had stored explosives in a warehouse in a residential area in the capital that caught fire last month, killing at least 15 children and wounding more than 100 people.

The New York-based Human Rights Watch and an independent Yemeni rights organisation released a joint statement on Thursday urging the Houthis to “stop storing large concentrations of volatile materials in densely populated areas.”

In Yemen’s civil war, the Iran-backed Al Houthis have been fighting a Saudi-led military coalition backing Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi’s forces since March 2015.

A few months before Al Houthis ousted the government in a coup.

The statement said the initial cause of the fire remains unknown.
