Security services thwart recruitment of Africans to fight with Houthis

Alsahwa Net- Security services of Aden have thwarted the smuggling of 144 Africans while they were en route to al-Baydha governorate.

Security sources told Alsahwa Net that the investigations found out that they were employed by the Houthis to fight in the directorate of Mukairas.

 Last week, security services also foiled an attempt to traffic  African to the Houthis-run areas. The initial investigations found out that the Africans were brought by the Houthis to fight. 

Spokesman of the Yemeni Army Abdu Mujali has stated the Houthi rebels have brought thousands of Africans to Hodeida with the aim of reinforcing their battlefields.

He said that the Houthis forced a number of refugees coming from African countries to join their military camps in Hodeida.

He also said that the Houthi recently increased the recruitment of children by force, threatening the families that refuse allowance their sons to be recruited.

Many families are shocked when their sons are brought back to them as corpses after they are abducted by the Houthis, mostly from schools, the sources added.

Human Rights Minister 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.
