80 Houthis surrender to Arab coalition forces in Yemen

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.
As many as 80 Houthi militias have surrendered to the Saudi-led Arab coalition forces in Yemen’s Hodeidah governorate, military sources said on Friday.

The sources added that the Houthi elements who turned themselves in voiced their keenness not to continue fighting with the insurgent group, stressing that they were forced to do it. 

Meanwhile, a civilian was killed and four others were wounded when shells launched by Houthis hit residential neighborhoods in al Tuhayat district in south of Hodeidah.
