Yemen’s Houthi group has committed about 65,971 violations against children, the Yemeni Network for Rights, and Freedoms revealed yesterday.
According to Anadolu, the organisation revealed that it had documented these violations between January 2015 and August 2019.
“The violations committed by the Houthis included killings, recruitment, kidnappings, and detention in 17 out of 22 Yemeni governorates,” the report said.
It stated that 7,120 children were killed, including 79 infants, due to bombing, sniper attacks, landmines, and as a result of the blockade.
The report also documented 465 detentions and kidnappings in 16 out of 22 governorates, as well as the displacement of 43,608 children.
Meanwhile, it revealed that 12,341 children under the age of 14 were recruited by the Houthis and forced to take part in the fighting.
The Houthis have not commented on the report.
Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2014, when the Houthis overran much of the country, including the capital, Sanaa. In 2015 a Saudi-led military coalition launched an air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi territorial gains, and to restore the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
