Houthi snipers are increasingly targeting people in Taiz, in southwest Yemen, resulting in dozens of civilian casualties.

Houthis are continually sniping and shelling residential neighborhoods and rural villages close to the frontlines, despite the ongoing ceasefire.

Today, Monday, a Houthi sniper wounded a citizen in Taiz. Aseel Thakir Al-Aghbari, was shot in the thigh by a Houthi sniper, next to the old Governorate building, in Salh District, and transported to Al-Thawra General Hospital, a local source told A24.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Yemen reported that more than 150 civilians in Yemen have been killed since the ceasefire started on April 2.
