However, the National Museum in Taiz, registered in the World Heritage List of museums, has been able to protect from theft and looting by its employees. Ahmed Jassar, a museum employee in Taiz, while wandering through its destroyed and burned corridors, tells how he managed to keep the museum records and risked his life and others to preserve some of its antiquities and collections by moving them to a safe place after the Houthis bombed it. It is noteworthy that the National Museum in Taiz was exposed in 2016 to the Houthi bombing and was destroyed.
