UAE Journalists Association denounces Houthi terror attack on media

Mohamed Al Hammadi, chairman of the UAE Journalists Association, called on international media organisations to expose the crimes of the Houthis.


The UAE Journalists Association has condemned the terrorist act carried out by the Houthi militias in Mocha, Yemen, against unarmed civilians and led to the death of Ziad Al Sharabi, a cameraman with Abu Dhabi TV, and the injury of Faisal Al Dhahbani, Abu Dhabi TV reporter.

Mohamed Al Hammadi, chairman of the UAE Journalists Association, called on international media organisations to expose the crimes of the Houthis, which target journalists continuously throughout Yemen, without regard to international conventions and laws that criminalise such immoral practices.

Al Hammadi also called on the International Federation of Journalists and the Federation of Arab Journalists to intervene to stop such criminal acts against journalists in particular, and civilians in general, and to work with the international community to ensure the security and protection of media professionals while performing their duties in places of conflict and war in accordance with international humanitarian law.

The board of directors of the association extended its sincere condolences to the family of Al Sharabi and to the Abu Dhabi TV, wishing a speedy recovery to Faisal Al Dhahbani.
