UNICEF: 6700 Yemeni children killed, wounded

Alsahwa Net- The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) on Wednesday stated that 6700 Yemeni children have been killed and wounded since the eruption of the conflict in 2015.

In a tweet, UNICEF affirmed that approximately 358 Yemeni children suffer severe malnutrition, pointing out that they need an urgent treatment, and calling all Yemen fighting parties to avoid targeting children.

Meanwhile, Yemen’s human rights minister Mohammed Askar has accused the Iran-backed Houthi rebels of recruiting 25,000 children and involving them in their senseless wars.

“The Houthis had admitted that they recruited 18,000 children, but the real figure is more than that” he added.

 “In late December 2018, a roadmap was signed to end the child soldiers recruitment with UNICEF because the phenomenon of child recruitment largely spread” he went on.

He highly praised efforts exerted by the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths to end the Yemen war, calling Russia and the international community to put pressures on the Houthis to implement the Stockholm agreement.
