Hawzah News Agency – Safra pointed out that the US-Saudi aggression’s targeting of the waste gathering area led to its scattering in all areas in the capital, Sana’a.

He stressed the importance of continuing awareness-raising activities about the dangers of cluster bombs and other remnants of US-Saudi aggression in contaminated areas.

He also pointed out that the tasks and activities of the Executive Center are humanitarian and have nothing to do with politics and conflict, as promoted by the media of aggression.

For his part, the Undersecretary of Marib Governorate Naji Al-Masry stressed the importance of raising awareness among civilians about the dangers of the remnants of raids and cluster bombs scattered in the governorate's districts.

“When we talk about a disaster, it is not an illusion, we have statistics of 2,500 cluster bomb raids, in addition to the tactical weapons. There are 15 types of cluster bombs that have targeted Yemen,” he added.

The Director of the Center stated that in the field survey of 3 districts in Al-Jawf governorate, there are 50 thousand farms affected by the remnants and cluster bombs of the aggression.

He noted that the Mine Action Center faces difficulties in obtaining detectors and field supplies, as development and other sectors cannot operate unless the areas are removed and cleared of remnants and cluster bombs.

The US-Saudi aggression targeted the waste gathering area of the Executive Center for Mine Action in Bani Matar district on February 18, with the aim of concealing evidence related to war crimes against Yemen.

The Executive Center for Mine Action pointed out that the area of gathering remnants of the US-Saudi aggression was known and had been visited by the United Nations.
