Two child officers fighting in Houthi ranks get killed in Marib


Alsahwa Net – Two children holding military titles in the Shia extremist militia of Houthis have been killed in the fighting against government forces in Marib, Yemeni media platforms reported.

“Captain” Al-Ameer Ali al-Hakem and First Lieutenant Asef Saeed Al-Shihari were killed in the recent confrontations in Marib,” reported Anbaa Aden news website. The story did not include the ages of the young militants but the pictures indicate they are young teenagers.

The sources said the families were lured by the military titles given to their children to get them into the warfronts. Yemeni NGOs and observers say the Houthi militia throughout its history is an army of radicalized children.

Just yesterday the National Resistance published a report blacklisting 53 Houthi leaders including the militia’s Education Minister for recruiting child soldiers in Sana’a including 325 children who were killed in the different frontlines against the government during the first ten months of 2020.

The statistics was gathered from following up the funerals broadcast on the Houthi TV channel “Almasirah”.
