King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center’s (KSrelief) Masam project dismantled 921 mines planted by Houthi militia across Yemen during the third week of August, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The extraction included 51 anti-personnel mines, 276 anti-tank mines, 590 non-explosive ordnances and four explosive devices, bringing the total number of mines removed during the month to 2,542.

Since its launch in 2018, Masam project has cleared 354,857 mines in Yemen.

KSrelief also signed an agreement to build a $1.5 million comprehensive primary healthcare center in Yemen’s Hadhramaut.

The center, funded by the Salem Bin Mahfouz Foundation, will serve residents who lack access to critical healthcare services in Al-Hajrin region.

“The agreement comes within Saudi Arabia’s efforts to support the people of Yemen across various fields and help them establish a decent living,” read the SPA statement.
