2 children injured due to landmine explosion in Hodeidah


At least two children were seriously injured on Saturday as a result of the explosion of a landmine left behind by the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression in Al-Tuhaita district, Hodeidah province.

According to the Executive Mine Action Center, the explosion caused serious injuries to the 2 children .

The rising number of victims due to mines and remnants left over by the aggression forces  during the humanitarian truce in many provinces, is attributed to the lack of survey devices and equipment required to clean the affected areas, as a result of preventing their entry by the coalition, the center said.

It called on humanitarian partners to play their role and pressure the United Nations Development Program to provide detectors to cleanse the province from the war remnants.
