Several children were killed and wounded in shelling by the Iran-backed Houthi militias against a refugee camp in Yemen’s al-Khokha district and residential neighborhoods in Hays city in southern Hodeidah.

Witnesses said that four children were wounded when a mortar shell landed in the al-Jaber camp in Khokha.

In Hays, Houthi attacks completely destroyed a local resident.

Meanwhile, local sources said the militias carried out a series of raids and arrests against citizens in Hodeidah’s Zabid district.

Dozens of fathers were detained in order to pressure their sons to head to the battlefronts.

Separately, the national army liberated a mountain range in the Ktaf district in the Saada province in the North.
