Human rights sources said that the captured soldier, “Mohamed Ahmed Wahban”, died inside a prison controlled by the militia, with the possibility that he would be tortured and executed by hanging inside the prison.
The sources explained that “Wahban”, who is from the Al-Madan District in Amran, was captured in the Mas camp in Ma’rib by the militia in mid-November 2020, and then the Houthi militia gave a death sentence against him on accusations of what it called aiding “aggression” – in reference to the legitimate government.
The sources pointed out that the militia tried to avoid the crime, claiming that the prisoner’s death was natural, informing his grandfather to come to receive his body from the military hospital in Sana’a.
