Houthis use new tactics to recruit Yemeni schoolchildren

Alsahwa Net- Education sources in the capital Sana’a have revealed that Houthis are using new tactics to recruit school children.

The sources said that 50,000 students of secondary and primary education are at risk of being recruited by the Houthis after the Houthis deliberately reported them failed in the past year’s tests. 

Sources quoted by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily Newspaper said that the Houthis deliberately reported failure results to a large percentage of students.

Parents who spoke to the paper said that the Houthis aim to push their children out of education to send them to warfronts. 

The Houthis’ leader’ brother, Yahya Al-Houthi who runs the Education Ministry in the Houthis’ cabinet has been accused of using the education for military purposes to his group.  

A local human rights organization said that the Houthis committed over 1,492 abuses to education between September 2014 to December 2019 in areas of their control.

The Rights Radar said in one of its latest reports that the Houthis attacks on education included bombing, storming, shutting down, stealing of assets and using the education for military purposes.
