Abductees Mothers Association statement condemning detaining dozens of civilians in Aden

Abductees’ Mothers Association in Aden condemns the arbitrary arrests carried out in connection to last week’s conflict in Crater. The association documented the unlawful detention of more than 400 civilians, including seniors and minors.  

Abductees’ Mothers Association holds the Security Belt forces, run by the Southern Transitional Council in Aden, completely responsible for the lives and safety of the arbitrarily detained, and demands releasing all arbitrarily arrested and forcibly disappeared persons.  

We call upon all human rights organizations to stand behind the families of the arbitrarily detained and to support them until their relatives are safely free.
