Al-Muqalla: The Iran-backed Houthis, along with their Yemen-based organizations, have banned female aid workers from traveling without male escort or a mahram, the United Nations has said, a move that has contributed to the distribution of aid in the war-torn country. Has created quite a hindrance.

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in its monthly bulletin on the humanitarian situation in Yemen released this week that the Houthis ordered women working with international organizations not to travel without a male relative.
