Yemen: half a million children were recruited

At least, half a million children were recruited in 2021 by the Houthi group and trained in six thousand summer camps.

SEYAJ Childhood is concerned that large numbers of children will be involved in the fighting.

SEYAJ calls on the Houthi group to immediately stop the recruitment and involvement of children in the armed conflict, and the use of schools for military purposes.

Children in Yemen are the most vulnerable and exposed to all kind of violations, including sextual exploitation.

Children participating in the battlefronts leave their schools under the influence of sectarian mobilization that will continue for decades to come.
