Nine dead and wounded from one family in Houthi shelling south of Hodeidah


Three civilians were killed, and six others injured Monday in a Houthi artillery bombardment on the Al-Jabaliah area of al-Tahita District, south of the western province of Hodeidah, according to eyewitnesses.

Witnesses added to “Al-Masdar online " that one of the shells landed on a house , resulting in nine civilian casualties, including five children, belonging to one family.

They explained that a number of the wounded were badly injured, which could raise the death toll.

Most of the residents of the Al- Jabaliah area had been displaced from their village following shelling by Houthi militants two months ago, but the relative calm and cessation of hostilities prompted some to return to their homes after remaining days in the open.
