Houthi shelling killed a child on Friday and injured his parents as they stood outside their house in a village southwest of the city of Taiz. A shelling was launched from Hadhran sub-district in Taiz, one of the strongholds of the Houthi militias, according to local sources. The incident came following a truce announced last month, which Houthis did not respect. The group broke the truce by bombing residential neighborhoods and sniping civilians in the city of Taiz.
– Soundbite (Faisal Abdullah Ahmed – a resident of the village):
“Today (Friday) at 05:30 p.m., a shell fell just outside the house of Hashem Ahmed Ali, killing his 8-year-old son, Mahmoud. The man and his wife were injured. Houthi militias do not adhere to the truce.”
