Yemen: Hajja Rawya tells the story of her leg amputation.
Naham-Sanaa-Yemen – 17/6/2016
Hajja Rawya walks in the region she lives in almost daily, in the village of Saad, Hreib Valley in Naham Directorate, east of Sanaa province, and one day she put her leg above a mine planted in the region, which has led to the loss of her right leg and her suffering has increased by the killing of her son by another mine.
Like all the other days, as Hajja Rawya was walking near her home in the village of Saad, Hreib Valley in Naham Directorate, east of Sanaa province, she placed her leg over a planted mine in the region, which has led to the loss of her right leg and fractures to other leg in spite of transferring her directly to the hospital.
Her suffering increased when another mine exploded killing her son.
It is noteworthy that this case is one of dozens of cases that have occurred as a result of the planted mines because of the ongoing war between sprawling parties in Yemen. The war often ends and disappears but its residues remain for many years, where Yemen is one of those countries where mines kill many people.
