DUBAI: The Saudi Arabian-led coalition in Yemen has handed 27 children to the Yemeni government after they were caught fighting with Houthi terrorist fighters on the border with the Kingdom, state news agency SPA reported.
An official coalition source said the Houthi militia were forcing Yemeni children to fight on the frontline.
The children were handed over at Sharourah force command in the presence of representatives from various organizations including members of the coalition forces, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Saudi Red Crescent Authority, and the head of Child Protection Unit in Armed Conflict.
The children were transported by bus to Marib.
