The year 2022 was an extension of the previous years and a harsh year in terms of human rights for Yemenis. Since the outbreak of the conflict
in Yemen on September 21, 2014 a taking control of the capital, Sana’a by the Houthi group, the grave violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law have not stopped.
