The number of crimes of rape and kidnapping of women and children ,under the age of ten, increased in the city of Aden , under the control of UAE, main part of the U.S backed -Saudi-led coalition ,and which were carried out by mostly unknown gunmen in light of the security chaos experienced by the cities under the control of the UAE forces.
On Tuesday, the city of Aden witnessed a horrific rape crime of a 10-year-old girl by a security man ,belonging to the UAE-backed security forces, which controls the city.
According to an eyewitness in a telephone interview with “Yemen Extra” ,a security man, working at Mualla police station , kidnapped a 10- year -old girl in front of her house in the neighborhood of Hafun ,Sheikh Othman city, and took her to his home in the same neighborhood,where he raped her brutality.
Last Monday, armed elements in Khor Muksar district kidnapped and raped a displaced child from the province of Hodeidah, which is in a state of widespread displacement due to the military attacks launched by the coalition since last April.
According to local sources, the child was found in a residential neighborhood in the city of Khor Maksar, after being severely beaten by the abductors.
On the same day, armed men in uniform kidnapped a 16-year-old girl, named ‘Athar Ali Saeed’ ,from her home in Khor Maksar district ,Aden.
The girl’s father said in a telephone conversation with the editor of “Yemen Extra” that the car stopped in front of the girl, and a person ,in military uniform,and carrying a Kalashnikov, got out and forced the girl to get into the car, which then moved to an unknown destination.
He added that a number of citizens gathered when they heard the scream of the girl during the abduction, but they did nothing after being threatened by the gunmen .
The kidnapping of the girl came a few days after “unknown” gunmen kidnapped a young woman, “Fatima Shakib,” 26 years, while she was on her way to a market in the neighborhood of Abu Idarous in the Directorate of Crater, and took her to an unknown destination .
According to witnesses, the incident took place in front of a number of citizens who also did nothing amid a frightening escalation of the crimes of abduction and rape of women in the provinces, under the control of the coalition.
This comes two days after a woman was found on the road leading to Aden in a horrible condition and with signs of torture. She was taken to the hospital for treatment after being abducted from Lahj province two weeks ago.
A 17-year-old girl, Manar Ibrahim Ahmed Ghanem, was kidnapped by unknown assailants in Block 12, Mansoura Directorate, on last July 12, whereas her fate is still unknown.
