Two siblings were killed in mine explosion laid by Houthi rebels on Sunday while their father survived in Durayhimi district, south the port city of Hodeidah.
Local sources said a landmine planted by the militias, before fleeing the area, exploded in Qadba village in the southern outskirts of Durayhimi, killing Yahya Mohammed Ali Omar, 10, and his sister Najwa, 11.
This incident comes one day after the death of a woman and the injury of others from the same family as a result of Houthi shelling on a residential neighborhood in Hays district, south Hodeidah, according to local sources.
Reports estimated that the Houthi rebels have laid almost one million minefields in large swaths of war-torn Yemen. As a result, many civilians, on a weekly basis, fall victim to such mines.
