During the third week of March 2022, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center “Masam” project was able to clear Yemeni lands of mines.
It discovered 1,472 mines, including 28 antipersonnel mines, 297 anti-tank mines, 1,132 unexploded ammunition, and 15 explosive devices, planted by the Houthi militia in Yemen’s various regions.
Masam’s crew was able to clear 167 anti-tank mines, 356 unexploded ordnance in Aden Governorate, 1 unexploded ordnance in Al Dhalea Governorate’s Qataba District, and 4 anti-personnel mines and other explosives in Al Dhalea Governorate.
This raises the total number of mines cleared in March to 3,910, bringing the total number of mines cleared since the beginning of the “Masam” project to 326,699 so far.
Mines have been put randomly around Yemen by the Houthi militia to harvest more innocent victims, including children, women, and the elderly.
While the Kingdom, represented by the King Salman Relief Center, continues to work on clearing mines from Yemeni lands and assisting Yemeni brothers in living a good life.
