Saudi Arabia’s KSRelief takes former Yemeni child soldiers on fun excursion

The King Salman Humanitarian Aid And Relief Center (KSRelief) on Sunday carried out a recreational trip for 27 children to the Marib General Park.
The director of the project to rehabilitate children affected by the Yemeni conflict, Abdulrahman Al-Qubati, said that the visit hopes to “rehabilitate the children psychologically and socially.”
Al-Qubati added that the trip is the first phase of the seventh and eighth launched by the center helping 80 affected child soldiers.
He stressed that children are living in a different atmosphere, from being deprived of fun during their recruitment by the Houthi rebels, and such trips are working to enhance their childhood as a remedial step to get rid oftrauma they suffered due to acting as human shields in armed conflict.
KSRelief said it was working to rehabilitate 241 children who had been recruited and affected by the rehabilitation project for child soldiers.

Houthis agree to stop firing missiles at Saudi Arabia

  • The Iran-backed rebels ordered the cessation of rocket and drone attacks
  • It cessation was done at the request of UN special envoy Martin Griffiths

SANAA, Yemen: A senior leader of the Houthi militia says the group will halt rocket fire into Saudi Arabia for the sake of peace efforts.
The Houthi leader, Mohammed Ali Al-Houthi, says the Iran-backed rebels ordered the cessation of rocket and drone attacks on the Saudis and forces loyal to coalition member the United Arab Emirates at the request of UN special envoy Martin Griffiths.
The statement was carried by militia-controlled media early on Monday.
Griffiths announced on Friday that both sides had agreed to attend talks in Sweden “soon” aimed at ending the three-year war. The announcement followed an informal de-escalation last week around the key port city of Hodeidah.
