WATCH: Defusing landmines in Yemen

The National spent time with soldiers involved in clearing landmines near Al Mokha, just south of Houthi occupied Hodeidah.

UAE and Sudanese minesweeping teams say they are finding landmines and IEDs with increasing regularity.

They note that as the Houthi rebels have been pushed back, they have increased their use of landmines.

Experts also point to a growing body of evidence of Iranian support for the Houthi's landmines and IEDs. Many of the devices are imitations of known, Iranian models, and feature components manufactured in Iran.
