King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center’s project for clearing mines (Masam) in Yemen has dismantled 7,162 mines during the month of April.
They included 106 antipersonnel mines, 1,402 anti-tanks, 5,617 unexploded ordnance, and 37 explosive devices, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Since the beginning of the project, 163,183 landmines have been dismantled. Planted by Houthi militias in Yemen, they have claimed lives, caused serious injuries and led to limb amputation among children, women and the elderly.
The project is a continuation of efforts being exerted by Saudi Arabia’s KSrelief to clear Yemeni lands of landmines and unexploded ordnance and to train Yemeni nationals.
