A woman in north Yemen’s Saada province has reportedly stabbed herself after learning that her sixth son was killed in a Houthi warfront against the government, local sources said.
“The wife of Hussein Rashed Ayedh al-Salimi stabbed herself to death at night, upon learning that her youngest son was killed while fighting along side Houthi militants against the government forces in Marib,” said the sources in social media posts on Sunday, adding that the woman is from Al Salem clan.
The militia have forcibly recruited 2000 people from the clan over the course of the years long war to fight on their side. Local news websites say the militia have largely drained up the clan of young men.
