circulating on social media platforms, urging Yemeni youth to join the US army.
These advertisements, carrying the slogan “Are you from Yemen? Military jobs in the United States!”, included information about job opportunities in the US army and the benefits that participants would receive, such as a decent salary, medical insurance, and professional training.
The advertisements have sparked outrage and condemnation among many Yemenis, who consider them as an American attempt to attract Yemeni youth and involve them in future wars.
Observers believe that the spread of these advertisements at this time aims to recruit young people to work in the US army as part of Washington’s efforts to enhance its military presence in the region. This comes in conjunction with US military build-ups in the Red Sea and the deployment of Marines and British forces in the occupied southern provinces.
Yemeni activists have called for legal measures to prevent the spread of these advertisements and to protect Yemeni youth from falling into the trap of American recruitment.
