Unconfirmed Report: Yemen’s Houthis Rounded Up Jews
Controversy erupted as an Egyptian report circulated on social media on Tuesday, claiming that Yemen’s Houthis arrested Jews in the Kharif District of the 'Amran Governorate northwest of Sana'a as part of "ethnic cleansing" efforts.
The report, published in several Yemeni media outlets and then the Egyptian newspaper Al-Mesryoon, stated that local sources from Kharif had reported that the Houthis had rounded up the Jews and imprisoned them due to their religion and were pressuring them to leave Yemen.
The Houthis additionally forced the Jews to sign pledges to sell their homes, land, and property to Houthi leaders at nominal prices and then leave the country, according to the report.
The report has yet to be confirmed by any official source, leaving questions about the report’s validity. The fate of the Jews in Yemen, if the report is true, is uncertain. (JPost / VFI News)
