RIYADH: Project Masam, a Saudi initiative to clear land mines in Yemen, in the second week of November dismantled 637 mines planted by the Iran-backed Houthi militia.

Overseen by the Saudi aid agency KSrelief, the project’s special teams destroyed 518 unexploded ordnance, 117 anti-tank mines, and two anti-personnel mines.

The devices, which were planted indiscriminately by the Houthis across Yemen, posed a significant threat to the lives of innocent people, including children, women, and the elderly.
