Houthis recruit children as Saudi-led Coalition advances in Yemen

Houthi and Saleh

Houthi terrorists and pro-Ali Abdallah Saleh militants escalated their forced recruitment of children as Saudi-led Coalition advances in Yemen.

Children recruitment by Houthi terrorists has recently increased seven folds, which resulted in the death of thousands of Yemeni kids.

Experts asserted that children among Houthi ranks have reached 15,000.

These kids participate in combating, planting mines, used as human shields and guarding checkpoints.

Houthi terrorists recruited these children through intimidating their parents, bribing tribes leaders or even kidnapping them, informed sources told The Baghdad Post.
