Businessman Mustafa Tawfiq Al-Khamiri launched an appeal to end the siege imposed by armed Houthi elements and military patrols on his house in the capital, Sanaa.
Mustafa, the son of businessman Tawfiq Al-Khamri, said in a video posted on his Facebook account that about thirty military patrols surrounded his house, driven by the militia chief, Nasser Al-Arajali, he said.
Al-Khamri pointed out, “The roads leading to the house located on Sixtieth Street were cut off, while some armed men spread out on the roofs of neighboring houses, terrorizing the women and children in the house.”
Regarding the reason for this, Al-Khamri said, “Al-Arjali claims that he has a lawsuit against his uncle for a sum of money, holding the militia responsible for his life and the life of his family.”
Traders and businessmen in areas controlled by the Houthi militia complain of harassment, blackmail, confiscation of their money and property, and imposition of taxes on them under various names.
