Alsahwa Net- Well-informed sources in Sana'a said that the Houthis have failed to reinstate the compulsory military service among school leavers after the matter was suspended during the past 20 years by former governments.
Sources quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily Newspaper said that the Houthis still hold results of the past year’s exams with the aim of forcing the school leavers to implement the compulsory military service.
The sources indicated that the Houthis’ directives on the implementation of the compulsory military service were rejected by the pupils and their parents.
The Houthis attempted to reinstate the military service among the school leavers to recruit the young men to join their militants in the fighting against the government's forces.
