Child among 13 civilians killed by Houthi
On Friday a child was among 13 people killed when a missile fired by Yemeni rebels struck a tribal leader’s home south of the strategic city of Marib, military and medical sources said.
“A Houthi ballistic missile hit the house of Sheikh Abdul Latif Al-Qibli in Al-Jawba on Thursday evening during a meeting with tribal leaders fighting on the government’s side,” a government military official said.
“Thirteen people, including a child, were killed,” he added. The death toll was confirmed by a medical source in the area.
As well as the child, Thursday evening’s missile strike also killed four tribal leaders, said the military official.
At least 11 houses were damaged and 16 civilians were wounded in the attack, according to the officials.
