The source specified that only in the second week of November 1,565 mines were defused by the experts of the Masam project, financed by Saudi Arabia.

These landmines were planted by the Houthi militia in different regions of the country, it denounced.

The war in this Arab nation broke out in 2014, when the rebels launched an offensive from the north and occupied this capital and large areas of the national territory.

A year later Saudi Arabia and Arab allies intervened in the war in support of President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, whose forces recovered some areas, but in recent months they have lost ground around the strategic city of Marib.

According to the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, two-thirds of the Yemeni population, some 20 million people, are dependent on humanitarian assistance and 80 percent live below the poverty line.

After seven years of conflict, that nation has the fourth largest internally displaced population in the world with some four million, the agency recently revealed.
