18 civilians killed and wounded by Houthi shelling on residential area in Haradh


Some 18 civilians were killed and wounded in a bombing attack by Houthi militants late Thursday night on a populated area in the Haradh district of the northwestern district of Hajjah Province.

Local sources told the Al-Masdar online that the Houthis fired a number of Katyusha shells at the village of Shaleila, east of the city of Haradh, near the Saudi border, resulting in eight deaths and at least 10 wounded, most of them women and children.

Large parts of the Haradh district are witnessing armed confrontations between government forces and Houthi militias, and the legitimate government army has been able to make significant progress over the past weeks in several directions of the Directorate and has surrounded the city of Haradh from more than One Direction.

The injured were in mixed injuries and were taken to hospitals inside Saudi Arabia, the sources said.
