As the Houthi militias continue to fire missiles on neighborhoods inhabited by internally displaced persons in Marib, Yemen’s Human Rights Ministry demanded a prompt international intervention.

The militia fired on Wednesday night a new missile into a neighborhood in the government-held city of Marib leaving six internally displaced persons injured and leaving others missing under the rubble of the hit house.

The ministry in response issued a statement demanding international documentation of these atrocities and a prompt intervention to stop the well-armed terrorists from such recurrent attacks.

“Shelling areas populated by civilians is a serious escalation and a violation of the international norms,” said the statement recalling a similar attack that killed the family of a lawmaker in the same neighborhood a couple of weeks ago and the more recent genocidal killing of tens soldiers and civilians as a Houthi ballistic missile struck a mosque where they were performing the Sunset prayer.
