Information from the Houthi-affiliated SABA news agency included the developments following Samad’s death in an airstrike in the town of Hodeidah in April 2020 by coalition forces supporting the Yemeni government.

In the news, it was recorded that the so-called Houthi prosecutor’s office executed 9 people accused of being a member of a cell affiliated with the Saudi-led coalition forces and of being involved in the assassination of Sammad by gunshot.

Abdurrahman Berman, president of the American Center for Justice, a Michigan-based non-governmental organization, said in a statement on his Twitter account that the Houthis executed 9 people, including a minor, among residents of Tihame in the west of the country.

Berman accused the Houthis of “torturing and forcibly removing detainees, thwarting their most basic legal and human rights, and executing them after a show trial, devoid of the lowest standards of a fair trial “.

Yemeni Information Minister Muammar Al-Iryani, in his statement after the Houthis announced the death sentences of 9 people, called on the United Nations (UN) and the international community to pressure the Houthis to qu ‘they stop the execution.

Iryani had warned that Houthi militias would start massacres of civilians by executing 9 residents of Hodeidah after being subjected to false charges and a formal trial.

Sammad, one of the leading figures of the Houthi political staff, was killed in the airstrike carried out by coalition forces on April 19, 2018 in Hudeyde.

In Yemen, where political instability has long prevailed, clashes are taking place between the Iranian-backed Houthis and forces affiliated with the government.

The Houthis have controlled the capital Sana’a and parts of it since September 2014, while Saudi Arabia-led coalition forces have supported the Yemeni government against the Houthis since March 2015.
