Marib govt hands over 27 Houthi child fighters back to families
The local government of Marib handed over 27 Houthi child fighters arrested by the armed forces in different fronts back to their relatives on Thursday.
The children who range between 12 and 15 in age were subjected to de-programs of radicalization and rehabilitation held by Marib's local government in coordination with two NGOs, Shahed and the National Organization for Rights and Freedoms (HOOD). The children were psychologically prepared to be able to re-integrate into the society and back to schools.
"This is the third time that Marib local authority hands over children, whom the rebel militia had embroiled in their insane war, back to their families," said the deputy governor of Marib Ali al-Fatimi during the handover ceremony.
