According to the Yemeni Network for Rights and Freedoms, the Houthi militia perpetrated 2,158 offenses against religious leaders, mosques, and other places of worship in the first four months of this year.

The group documented Houthi religious violence in 14 Yemeni governorates, including the capital city of Sana’a, Amran, Hajjah, Saada, Al-Jawf, Marib, Dhamar, Ibb, Al-Bayda, Al-Dhalea, Taiz, Raymah, and Al-Mahwit, which included the killing of imams and preachers, as well as causing injuries, beating worshipers, kidna

According to the rights group, the Iran-backed force imposed Houthi ideas on speakers and converted mosques into schools for sectarian radicalization of minors.

Rashad Al-Alimi, who took over as president of the Presidential Leadership Council on April 7 after former President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi delegated his responsibilities to the council, had urged the Houthis to adhere to the UN-brokered cease-fire.
The Iran-backed militias have often violated the two-month ceasefire that began at the start of Ramadan, particularly in Marib, where they manipulated the quiet to gain strategic advantage in the area.

The cease-fire was severely harmed when the first commercial aircraft from Sanaa airport was delayed because the Houthis insisted on boarding dozens of passengers with fake IDs.
