Houthi attacks kill 2 soldiers

Three children who live close to an old airfield west of Taiz were reportedly shepherding their sheep when a Houthi mortar bomb fired from the city’s outskirts struck the ground, seriously wounding them.

Maher Al-Abasi, a local human rights activist who saw the children, told Arab News that one child was evacuated right away to an intensive care unit at Rawada hospital as doctors severed one of the other children’s legs to save them.

“A mother of two children collapsed upon seeing her children in the hospital. As a result, I was unable to hear her story of what had occurred,” Al-Abasi said, adding that the youngsters came from a family that had previously escaped Houthi brutality in Ibb province.
