At least seven civilians were killed when shelling by Houthi rebels hit a village in western Yemen, the Yemeni army said on Sunday.
Axar.az reports that ten others were also injured in the attack on a village in the coastal city of Al Hudaydah, the al-Amalika Brigade said in a statement, adding that some of the wounded are in critical condition.
Yemen has been beset by violence since 2014, when Iran-backed Houthis overran much of the country, including the capital Sanaa.
The crisis escalated in 2015 as a Saudi-led military coalition launched a devastating air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi territorial gains. Thousands of people have been killed and displaced in the conflict since then.
