RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Project Masam dismantled 731 mines in Yemen — which had been planted by the Iran-backed Houthi militia — between Jan. 27 and Feb. 2.

Overseen by the Saudi aid agency KSrelief, the project’s special teams destroyed 622 pieces of unexploded ordnance, 93 anti-tank mines, 12 improvised explosive devices, and four anti-personnel mines.

The explosives, which were planted indiscriminately by the Houthis across Yemen, posed a threat to civilians, including children, women and the elderly.
