MASAM Demining Project in Yemen

Saudi Arabia has extended the  contract of the Saudi Project for Landmines Clearance in Yemen (MASAM) for an additional year with a cost of more than $33 million.

“Renewing  the contract with the implementing partner stems from the sense of humanitarian responsibility the center has towards our brothers in Yemen,” said Advisor at the Royal Court and Supervisor General of the  King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabeeah.

Rabeeah said the project represents great importance in clearing Yemeni lands from mines manufactured and installed by the Houthi militia.

He said that the mines are targeting innocent civilians and causing chronic disabilities and several human losses that targeted women, children, and the elderly.

The project has managed to clear 346,570 various types of explosive materials so far, according to Rabeeah.
