The Yemeni High Council for Humanitarian Affairs said the Saudi coalition and its mercenaries are using civilians and internally displaced people in Ma'rib as human shields to stop the advance of Yemeni army troops and fighters from Popular Committees.

The council, in a statement on Thursday, deplored the insistence of militants from the al-Qaeda-affiliated Salafist Islah Party to use Ma'rib civilians as human shields, and their blunt refusal to open humanitarian corridors for unarmed civilians to leave the conflict zone.
