Eight civilians among them children have been killed and injured by rockets fired by Houthi militia against the civilians in Taiz city, on Friday.

Local sources told September Net “A 11-year-old boy Mohamed Naser Ghaleb was killed and his little brother, 6, sustained injuries by Houthi militia’s mortars’ rockets on a residential village in Makbana, west of Taiz.

Two more children and four civilians also have sustained different injuries today after the Houthi rebel militia fired a rocket on worshipers performing Friday prayers in the Freedom Square downtown Taiz city, sources added.

The Iran-backed Houthi putschist militia invaded Yemen’s third largest city, Taiz, in 2014, and since then they have been laying a tightened siege around the city’s entrances, denying access of food and medicine, heavily and randomly targeting the civilians with artillery and Katusha rockets and direct snipers attacks, resulting in the killing and wounding of thousands of unarmed citizens
