Militias of the Houthis and ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh are recruiting children by force in districts of Malhan and Jabal al-Mahweet of al-Mahweet governorate, local sources told Alsahwah Net.
The sources affirmed that Secretary General of al-Mahweet gathered last month 50 children, claiming that they would attend a cultural course organized by the Houthis, but the children were surprised as they were sent to fighting fronts.
The sources said that children refused to join the Houthi fighting fronts, but they were sent by force.
It is worth mentioning that the Houthi Movement recruited thousands of children and involved them in different fronts without the knowledge of their families. Those families who objected were threatened with punishment
