Another Houthi missile attack has been reported and this time, a ballistic missile struck the Yemeni city of Marib, resulting in the deaths of 17 people, including a five-year-old child, in an attack the government pinned on the Houthi rebels.
According to Ali al-Ghulisi, the provincial governor’s press secretary, the missile hit a gas station in the Rawdha neighborhood.
According to Information Minister Moammar al-Eryani, in the Houthi missile attack least five other people were wounded in the incident, and all of the casualties were civilians.

Yemen has been immersed in civil war since 2014, when the Houthis, supported by Iran, marched across much of the north and took Sanaa, compelling the globally recognized administration to flee.
The following year, the Saudi-led coalition joined the fight on the government’s side.
More than 130,000 civilians which includes children have been murdered in the crisis, which has culminated in the world’s biggest humanitarian catastrophe.
