Witnesses and source: killing of civilians and wounding of two children by Houthi shelling on Hees city

Two civilians were killed and two children injured last night, with artillery shelling by Houthi militants on a house in the city of Hees, south of Hodeidah Province, on Saturday.

Witnesses told the Al-Masdar online that the Houthis bombed the city with a number of artillery shells, and one of the shells landed on a house, resulting in civilian casualties belonging to the same family.

They noted that the wounded were two children and were severely injured.

On the one hand, a government military source said that the Houthi militants are continuously shelling the city under the control of the government forces, although the latter are committed to implementing the ceasefire agreement in the city and province of Hodeidah.

He noted that the city had witnessed similar shelling of civilians since the ceasefire agreement entered into force on Dec. 18th.
