JEDDAH: Wednesdays missile attacks by Houthi rebels who targeted the headquarters of the Yemeni child soldiers rehabilitation center were denounced by Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, supervisor-general of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief).
Al-Rabeeah urged the UN and international organizations to condemn targeting the center, which is working to rehabilitate child soldiers so they can go back to school and resume disrupted studies.
The project is run with funding from KSRelief through a local partner, Wethaq Foundation for Civil Orientation. The project began as a result of the Iranian-backed Houthi militias use of child warfare in Yemen.
It aims to rehabilitate child soldiers, regardless of their background or political affiliation, and to protect them from further malign influence.
This project was established with international standards and practices for rehabilitating child soldiers and was carried out by academic experts in the fields of psychology and sociology.
