Houthis organize 4,000 children school camps


The Iran-backed Houthi rebels said that they have organized 4,000 children school camps throughout areas under their control.

Yet, this is not for merely educational purpose. The rebels seize these school activities for promoting their Shiite ideology among children and military recruitment of the teenagers.

Reports released by the Houthis said that they registered 250,000 children during the first month of this year school camps. The Houthis-affiliated officials shut down all school camps that do not allow promotion of Houthis’ ideology and arrested organizers.

Sources said that elder children were taken from school camps to military training camps in preparation to be sent to warfronts.

The government says that the Houthis recruited over 30,000 children since late 2014.

The Minister of Information, Muammar Al-Eryani of the legitimate government said on 21 July that the government obtained credible reports that the Houthi-rebels sent recently 200 children to Nehm fighting front, 40 Km, east of the capital Sana’a.

Al-Eryani said that these children that were sent to Nehm were taken from school camps organized by Houthis-affiliated officials.
