Yemen's Houthis Step Back On Threats To Tax Aid

Yemen's Houthis step back on threats to tax aid

Yemen's Houthi rebels have dropped a threat to tax international assistance sent to the war-torn country.

The rebel group, which has controlled the capital Sanaa and much of Yemen since 2014, had said they would impose a 2% levy on humanitarian aid.

However, in a letter seen by AFP and confirmed by the Houthis on Friday, the group agreed to drop the demand.

Yemen is the world's largest humanitarian crisis, with 80% of the country's population dependent on aid.

The letter, sent by the head of the Houthi aid body SCMCHA and addressed to UN official Mark Lowcock, said the decision had been taken to suspend the tax "and not apply it for this year 2020".

A UN official in Sanaa also confirmed the decision.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
