The sources reported that the local authority in Dhamar governorate, led by the new governor appointed by the militia, Muhammad Al-Bakhiti, had failed to restore the Yemeni Writers and Writers Union building.

Armed groups had taken control of the building, along with a group of women, on the grounds that it was their property, despite the appeals and statements submitted by the union’s members and writers.

On the other hand, writer and academic Bashir Zindal transmitted a picture of the floor of the cultural center in the same governorate, which had turned into a market for selling livestock.

He added, commenting that even the House of Culture was looted and seized by thieves without any reaction by the governor and the Houthi security authorities.

In the same context, and also from Dhamar, the writer and a member of the Yemeni Writers and Writers Union, Abdul-Wahab Al-Harrasi, offered his library for sale.

Al-Harassi wrote, and sadness is evident in his speech, saying: Well, she has withstood six years of war

And it's time to give up. Then he asked, "What is the difference between burning all of your books and buying fire with them?" Books, most of them are rare.

He added, "There is no price cut, because it is at the lowest price. I do not know which luxury or foolish person may spend his money buying a book in Yemen these days?" The sale auction concluded by saying, "We will start with poetry about Dar Al Awda, 1000 riyals for each book."

And many writers have already offered their own libraries for sale, such as the poet Muhammad Al-Qoud and the great writer Hassan Abdulwarith; to face the harsh conditions of life due to the ongoing war that deprived more than a million employees of their salaries.
