Yemeni Teachers Union: Houthis kidnapped two teachers, blew up two schools in northwest Marib

The Yemeni Teachers' Union (YTU) warned on Tuesday that the Houthis are targeting educational institutions in Majzar, the northwesternmost district in Marib governorate, where the group has gained significant ground since the end of January.

The Houthis kidnapped two teachers, Yahya Qaed and Tarek Al-Jabri, blew up the Al-Salah and Al Muthanna schools and replaced teachers with Houthi members who incite students to engage in combat, said Yahya Al-Yana’ee, a media official at the YTU. 

Houthi authorities have also allocated two school days a week to its indoctrination program in which teachers and students are taught about the rebels' ideology, he said. 

Another YTU member in the Majzar school district condemned the kidnapping of Al-Jabri, one of the teachers, from inside Al-Hatheqin School and held the Houthis accountable for the teacher's safety.  

The district education office and the local authority in the governorate are liable for Houthi crimes against the teachers who returned to work despite the dangerous situation in the district, the union member said, warning other teachers to stay away from the district for their own safety.
