Instead of taking him to the house, his family took him to the hospital

Human rights organizations published a shocking report about the secret prisons in Balhaf oil facility.
Balhaf facility is a natural gas liquefaction project under the administration of French company Total Oil.
The investigative report documented testimonies of civilians detained inside the oil facility.
It also documented a detention center where the detainees were subjected to torture and ill-treatment by Emirate soldiers.
"One of the soldiers told me as soon as I entered the dungeon: You have arrived in hell, we will kill you and you will never leave," one of the former detainees in Belhaf facility reported.
How did France become a partner to the Emirates in violating human rights in Yemen?
And why does France continue to sell arms to Saudi and Emirate, despite their involvement in war crimes in Yemen?
Yemeni fine artist paints on the broken glass of houses destroyed by coalition airstrikesThe artist Roqaya Al-Wasi creates unconventional paintings.
After the coalition airstrikes are launched from its military base,
Al-Wasi goes out from her home to collect the remains of the glass.
Al-Wasi paints the vivid colors of life on the signs of collapse,
after the war destroyed her dreams and the dreams of this generation of Yemenis.
The UN previously considered the coalition airstrikes the main cause of civilian casualties in Yemen.
The latest report of the Group of Experts accused all warring parties of committing violations against civilians,
stressing that the coalition airstrikes were carried out without observing the principle of discrimination and prudent avoidance to protect civilians.
Do the colorful paintings lift the darkness inside Yemeni people's chests?
The child Jihad was born without a mother due to Houthi shellIn besieged Taiz…children are born in untraditional ways.
The infant Jihad came to this life by the shrapnel of a tank shell.
The shrapnel seriously injured his mother, therefore the doctors performed a cesarean delivery to save the fetus.
While a mother's bosom is the first thing to receive babies all over the world, Jihad came to this life to find his mother had passed away.
Brutal massacre committed by Houthis shelling targeted civilian houses in Taiz city.
Shelling from one of the high peaks surrounding Taiz killed the mother of Jihad and 11 civilians, including 4 children.
This is not the first crime and won't be the last.
But life always wins over the death makers

Sniped because she was bringing water to her family !"I don't know how delinquents and scoundrels flourish in our good valley!"
Salah Abdul Sabour
This little girl was sniped because she was bringing a container of…water!
She went to bring water to her family, but her fate was a bullet in her head.
With the emaciated back of a 10-year-old girl, she struggles to carry this weight…how can her head withstand a sniper shot?
Or rather… how in her mind can she imagine this amount of brutality?
The girl Rowayda is not the first one in the series of direct Houthi targeting of Taiz children.
Ghufran, Farid, Amr, Safaa, and others are witness to unending violations of children’s rights
UNICEF has said that Yemen is one of the worst places on earth to be a child.
