Childern who are forced to kill Yemenis!
Sana’a has announced the capturing of dozens of underage soldiers fighting along the Saudi-UAE forces. “We have dozens of children who have been captured on the frontlines fighting with Saudi forces,” said Abdul Qader Al-Mortada, head of the Prisoners’ Affairs Committee in Sanaa.
Al-Mortada said in a tweet on Wednesday night that the Prisoners’ Affairs Committee informed the International Committee of the Red Cross and UNICEF and the victums were visited by these organization. “Are we going to hear international condemnation of the forces of aggression against the crime of child recruitment?” he added.
It is worth mentioning that one of the most prominent allegations of the coalition countries and their media are claims against the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees accusing them of recruiting children.
Al Jazeera has obtained exclusive footage that proves the presence of child soldiers in the recruitment camps of the Saudi-UAE-led coalition fighting in Yemen.The children, desperately poor, are being recruited to fight.
The United Nations children’s agency estimates that out of seven million school-aged children in Yemen over two million are not being educated amid a Saudi-led aggression’s war against the impoverished Arab state.
“The situation of Yemen’s education sector is daunting. Out of 7 million school-aged children, over 2 million children are already out of school,” a regional director of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund said on Sunday.
Ansarullah politburo member Ali al-Qahoum told Lebanon-based Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network on Tuesday that Yemeni soldiers and their allies are fairly committed to the truce, but will not stand idly by while the Saudi-led alliance continues to perpetrate crimes against Yemenis.
He added that whilst the Saudi-led coalition of aggression is pressing ahead with its crimes in Yemen, the international community behaves as if Yemeni people’s blood is worth nothing.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
