He declared that the bombings, which had been going on for about three weeks, had prevented the rebels from taking control of the district and stressed that “the international community must take responsibility,” like the chain of Al. reports Arabiya TV.

The internationally recognized information minister of the Yemeni government, Muamar al Eryani, stressed in September that the siege of Abdiya prevented the delivery of food and medical supplies to the approximately 150,000 residents of the city.

Al Eryani also denounced the rebels’ indiscriminate attacks with artillery and other weapons, citing them as war crimes and crimes against humanity in the context of the conflict.

The war in Yemen hits the internationally recognized government led by Abdo Rabbu Mansur Hadi and backed by an international coalition backed by Saudi Arabia and the Houthis, backed by Iran.

The rebels control the capital Sana’a and other areas in the north and west of the country. In recent months, despite international mediation efforts on several fronts, the conflict has escalated into a war that has caused the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.
