Saudi Prince Khalid bin Salman posted a series of tweets on Thursday condemning the Houthi militias' recruitment of children in Yemen.

In his first tweet, he posted four pictures of children looking as young as five years old, some dressed in military clothing and others seemingly chanting.

The prince also discussed the cases of children who were saved by KSRelief, describing them as “shocked by the horrors of war, where they find themselves between death and gunfire, and bodily remains.”

Condemning the international community and media for ignoring the Houthis’ daily violation of children’s rights, Prince Khalid said that child recruitment "must end once and for all."
