UAE-backed separatists recruit hundreds of child soldiers in Aden

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militias have recruited hundreds of children in Aden, well-informed sources have reported.

The sources confirmed that the STC recruited 300 children, taking advantage of the deteriorating living situation of the people in Aden and the rest of the southern provinces.

According to to some, the recruitment of children exposes the intentions of the STC to go into an oncoming battle in Aden, after the failure of implementation of the so-called Riyadh Agreement, which was signed between the STC and Hadi puppet government.

The STC’s child recruitment comes amidst a military mobilisation between the two parties in both Abyan and Shabwah provinces.
