Deputy Minister of Human Rights Mohammed Askar has said that the Yemeni government is preparing a program for rehabilitating child soldiers who were recruited by militias of the Houthis and Saleh.
He affirmed that the Yemeni government took over 80 percent of Yemen's territories, pointing out that this reduced violations committed by militias of the Houthis and Saleh.
Askar further said that militias of the Houthis and Saleh still commit crimes and violations against Yemeni civilians, children, women, journalists, and activists in areas run by their militias.
He also cited that the militias bombed Kawfal mosque in Marib last week, leaving scores of people killed and wounded.
The Yemeni official also mentioned that the Yemeni government fulfilled all its pledges, formed a national committee for investigation human rights violations and provided reports for the Office of Human Rights Commissioner and the member states of the Human Rights Council.
