Yemen, Sana’a (AP) — Yemeni rebels launched three ballistic missiles in a government-owned central city on Sunday, killing two children and injuring more than 30, officials said. rice field.
The attack was the latest to Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Malibu. They have been trying for months to reclaim an energy-rich city from the internationally recognized government of exiled President Abd Rabbo Mansur Hadi.
The missile landed in the Rawdha district of the house, according to Governor spokesman Alial-Ghulisi.
He said the dead included Gozlan Faisal, 4, and her Radad, 2. He said at least 32 people were injured, including five children and four women. Among the injured were a mother and a seven-month-old child, both of whom were in serious condition, Algrisi said.
There were no immediate comments from the Houthi regarding the attack.
He said the missile destroyed two homes, damaged 10 other homes in the neighborhood and burned eight vehicles.
In a tweet, Kasem Buhaibe, an internationally recognized government health minister, said the attack was part of the Houthi’s “continuing war crimes with a world of silence.”
Iran-backed Houthi rebels have been trying to capture Malibu from an internationally recognized government since February. This completes the rule of northern Yemen.
However, in the midst of strong resistance from government forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition, they have not made substantial progress and have suffered significant losses. The fighting has escalated in the last few weeks, killing more than 130 fighters, mainly the Houthi.
Rebels launched ballistic missiles, sent drones to Malibu, and often attacked private areas and refugee camps. In June, they attacked a drone loaded with missiles and explosives at a gas station in the same Rawdha district, killing at least 21 people, including a father and a two-year-old daughter.
At the time of the June attack, rebels said they had targeted military camps in the city, although they did not provide evidence to support their allegations.
