Abductees Mothers Association Rally Statement in Ibb

In the memory of the victims, we, at Abductees’ Mothers Association in Ibb, condemn the imprescriptible crime of targeting Community College Prison in Dhamar resulting in the death of 21 abductees and 4 injured others who are civilians from Ibb only. We, also, demand bringing the perpetrators to justice.

We hold the Arab Coalition and Houthi armed group, who abducted, and held our sons at that prison, and illegally prevented visits, food, and medications, responsible for the brutal crime.

We disapprove the international and humanitarian silence towards the crime. Moreover, we call upon the international and national human rights organizations and activists to stand by mothers’ demands until their sons are guaranteed their full freedom. We, lastly, stand our ground firmly in demanding the right of freedom for all abductees unconditionally.
