Houthi militias deprived more than 2.5 million Yemeni children of education, as a result of wars waged in the various governorates in the country according to educational statistics, Al Arabiya.Net reported.

The war in Yemen has caused hundreds of thousands to be displaced and the closure of schools, which the Houthi militias turned into military bases.

According to the statistics conducted by the nongovernmental organization ‘Studies and the Center for Educational media’ more than 1.5 million children have been out of school for the second year in a row, due to the closure of roughly 3,500 school doors in several provinces.
