Houthis spread extremism through schools' curriculum: Yemeni minister

The Yemeni Coalition for Monitoring Human Rights Violations has announced in a report that the Iran-backed Houthi militias have recruited 6172 children for their war effort.
Yemen’s Information Minister Muammar al-Iryani warned of the dangers of Houthi militias’ manipulation of school curriculum to spreads their extremist thoughts in the areas under their control.

Yemen’s Information Minister Muammar al-Iryani warned Saturday against the potential danger due to forming schools curriculum based on extremist thoughts by Houthi terrorists.


"The curriculum set by the Houthi militias is enforcing Yemeni children the extremist ideology and in contradiction with the country’s diverse culture," al-Iryani tweeted on Saturday, affirming that the whole thing is a plot by the militias to dismantle the social fabric of Yemen.

He pointed out that the militia has changed the school curriculum in the areas under their control, where they added articles about the Iranian-backed group and others that serve the Shiite ideology. The new curriculum includes a booklet about their founder "Hussein al-Houthi."

The minister expressed his concerns over the new generation, fearing it will turn into a generation of extremists if the Houthi dominance continued in Sanaa and other provinces.
