Yemen demands int'l pressure to stop Houthi recruitment of child soldiers
RIYADH - SABA
Yemen has demanded for an international pressure on the Houthi rebel militia to stop them from recruiting children in the areas they control to radicalization courses and then the battlefield.
In a statement to Saba, the country's Information Minister Muammar al-Eryani said, "In this World Day Against Child Labor, we remember tens of thousands of Yemeni children that the militia has recruited, brainwashed their minds with sectarian terrorist ideology, subjected them to military training and deployed them to the warfronts as a service to the Iranian regime."
Al-Eryani said that "hundreds of thousands of children are victims of Houthi elimination of mainstream education … to to push the children into the battlefields and create generations of terrorists and hardcore ideologues."
Al-Eryani called on the international community to "force the militia to stop recruiting children to combat works and deploying them to death zones."
