HOOD, the most renowned human rights agency in Yemen, declared in its latest address to the press on Sunday, that it was condemning Russia for continuing to sell military equipments to the regime.

The organization called on the Russian government to exercise its moral duty towards Yemeni civilians by stopping its exports of arms towards Yemen; especially since most of the equipment was being used against peaceful pro-democracy protesters.

 

HOOD also expressed its deepening worries over the recent rumors of armed conflict, referring to defected General Ali Mohsen latest quote that a confrontation was now “inevitable”. It added that violence would not help solve Yemen’s crisis but will only claim the lives of yet more innocents.

 

It went on accusing the Yemeni government of willingly cutting off its citizens from access to basic utilities such as running water, electricity and fuel in a bid to “punish” dissident sentiments.

The human rights organization congratulated the Youth Movement for its continuing desire to lead Yemen through a peaceful transition, encouraging it to stay on course, as Freedom and Democratic values could only be pursued through peaceful means.

 

HOOD closed its statement by asking the international community to get involved and to exert more pressure on Saleh in order to force him to bow to his people’s demands.
