Houthi strife provokes tribal disputes in Yemen

Houthi strife provokes tribal disputes in Yemen

Violent clashes erupted between the Al-Osaimat and Sufyan tribes; In the Al-Asha district of Amran governorate, northern Yemen, on Sunday, which led to the killing of 3 people and the injury of a fourth, as a result of disputes over water projects fueled by the Houthi militia.

Local news websites quoted tribal sources as saying that the clashes erupted over a water project that the Houthi militia leadership promised to implement in disputed areas between the two tribes.

She confirmed that 3 people were killed and wounded as a result of armed clashes between the sons of Al-Asha and Sufyan districts after the sons of Sufyan arrested the water project (located in Wadi Mor), which the residents of Al-Asha depend on to irrigate their farms.

It is noteworthy that many of these disputes are fueled by the Houthi militia in Amran and led by Houthi leaders on both sides to achieve their goals by controlling the tribes and preoccupying them with internal problems and tribal revolts.

This comes days after the publication of a video clip documenting the killing by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia of an elderly woman in front of her children in the same district.

Yemeni Minister of Information Muammar Al-Eryani considered this scene a reflection of the level of brutality and criminality of the Houthi militia, its indifference to the blood of Yemenis, and its disavowal of the teachings of the Islamic religion, human and moral values, and Yemeni customs and traditions that criminalize assault on women.

Al-Eryani said on his Twitter page that these brutal crimes and violations committed by the Houthi militia daily, including killing, looting, robbery of money and property, violation of sanctities, and indecent assault, reveal their true face, and reflect part of the tragedy and suffering experienced by millions of civilians in the areas under its control.
