Houthis continue recruitment of African migrants

Alsahwa Net-The Houthis have recently intensified military recruitment of African migrants using the carrot and stick approach.

The Houthis allow the African migrants to illegally cross Yemen into Saudi Arabia in exchange of their military service to the Houthis.

Houthis affiliated media outlets published videos of funeral to Houthis dead fighters among them African migrant.

The government and human rights organizations have frequently condemned Houthis for recruitment of the African migrants. 

The Houthis did the funeral this week to several dead fighters among them one recruited Ethiopian migrant in Hajja governorate, north Yemen, named Mohammed Hulm Mohamdo.

Mohamdo was killed while fighting for the Houthis’ forces in Al-Jawf.

Sources quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily Newspaper said that photos of the recent Houthis dead fighters included African migrants from Ethiopia and Somalia.

The African migrants continue flowing into Yemen despite the fighting to cross to Saudi Arabia for economic opportunities, according to the International Organization of Migration (IOM).

The organization recorded about 11,000 African arrivals to Yemen per month over 2019 who crossed the Gulf of Aden.

It said that the number of African migrants who arrived Yemen between 2018 and 2018, has exceeded the figure of those who crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe.

It recorded 280,000 African arrivals to Yemen during the past two years.
