#AceNewsReport – July.16: Local sources from Kharif told Al-Mesryoon that the Houthis had rounded up the Jews and imprisoned them due to their religion and were pressuring them to leave Yemen: They forced the Jews to sign pledges to sell their homes, land and property to Houthi leaders at nominal prices and then leave the country:
“Houthis round up Yemen’s Jews as part of ‘ethnic cleansing’ efforts – report,” by Tzvi Joffre, Jerusalem Post, July 14, 2020 (thanks to David):
The Houthis have reportedly persecuted the few Jews left in Yemen by cutting off their water and electricity and preventing them from purchasing food: The rebel group uses similar practices against non-Shi’ite Yemenis and Yemenis from other religions, according to Al-Mesryoon….
Yemen’s Information Minister Moammer al-Iryani stated in 2017 that the state of the 50 or so remaining Jews in the country was “unknown.”
A popular Houthi slogan includes the phrase “Curse the Jews.”
