HODEIDAH -Young people in Tihama, on the the West Coast of Yemen, have demanded UAE-backed mercenary leader Tariq Afash to extradite the perpetrators of a rape against a refugee girl in the Al-Matina area of Tuhita district, and demanded the extradition happen within 3 days.
The youths said in a statement issued on Friday that individuals belonging to the Tariq Afash militants raped a displaced Tihama girl, as well as killing her father Abdullah Borrah Rami and assaulting the rest of her family.
The father was murdered while trying to defend his daughter’s honour and safety.
The Tihama protesters gave the invading coalition command 72 hours to extradite the perpetrators or face the consequences.
According to the statement, the people of Tihama will take a number of escalatory measures aimed at supporting the girl and her family and holding the perpetrators accountable.
The statement stressed that if the deadline expires without the implementation of the demands, retaliatory measures will be initiated.
