Al Houthis launch missile at Yemen village

Hodeida: The Iranian-backed Al Houthi militia bombed the recently-liberated village of Al Ghalifqa in Al Duraihmi district of Hodeida governorate with an Iranian-made ballistic missile.

The attack, which killed a child and injured dozens of civilians, three of them seriously, is a continuation of their targeting of residential areas inhabited by civilians and their defiance of international laws that criminalise it.

The attack, which took place during Eid Al Adha, is also a continuation of their operations against civilians in Yemen’s liberated areas.

Several children who were playing in the village when the attack occurred. The Emirates News Agency, WAM, spoke with Yassin Hassan, the elder brother of one of the victims, who narrated tearfully the incident. “We were playing, me and my brother, with two of our friends when the missile landed near us and killed my brother and injured me and my friends. We did not realise what happened until we were in the hospital,” he said.
