Yemeni official calls for banning child recruitment
[12/06/2017 09:24]
Aden (Saba)-

Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Ebtihaj al-Kamal has called for pressuring the Houthi-Saleh militias end recruitment of children as soldiers and involving them in battles against Yemenis.

On the occasion of the World Day to Combat Child Labor on June May, al-Kamal cited that the Houthi-Saleh militias are carrying out an unjust war against the Yemeni people, indicating that they are bombing populated neighborhoods, schools and other public facilities.

The minster pointed out that international organizations say that over 1546 children were killed and 2450 others were injured after the coup was conducted on September 21, 2014.

She said that the militias recruited over 1600 children as soldiers according to reports of international human rights organizations, asserting that this act is a crime which contradicts all international treaties and conventions.

Al-Kamal also appealed to all international organizations interested in child rights and activists to highlight the suffering of Yemeni children and do whatever they can to help them.

She strongly decried the continuation of child recruitment by the Houthi-Saleh militias, demanding the United Nations organizations to condemn this act and criminalize the involvement of children in battles.

According to the minister, large numbers of children dropped out schools due the shelling of schools and that this may lead to a humanitarian disaster against children of Yemen.

She said that the Houthi militias are teaching children sectarian ideologies which threaten the country's social fabric and incite racial discrimination.
